The Otium 2 sit-in is the ultimate touring kayak of the Bay Sports family of sea kayaks. The Otium 2 was built for long distance paddling and capable of multi-day trips. It has a watertight storage compartment conveniently located directly in front of the cockpit, plus an additional 15cm twist-lock hatch, making this sea kayak the ultimate expedition tourer for weekend getaways and exploring.
Design & Construction
The Otium 2 is a fast cruising kayak designed for adventures great and far.
- It's quality construction with 3-layer foam core construction, sandwiched between high-grade UV stabilised HDPE, ensure this is a kayak that you will enjoy paddling for years to come.
- This V-shaped hull with hard chine, and little rocker, easily cuts through water whilst deep grooved hull lines provide for excellent tracking.
- The streamlined shape of this kayak is the basis for its speed and steadiness, and with a foot controlled rudder system, makes for easy manoeuvrability even with cross winds or stronger ocean currents.
The build quality is the best in class, with no traces of air bubbles inside the UV stabilised plastic walls, meaning your kayak is superior in durability and won't crack like brittle plastic kayaks prone to air bubbles, due to poor quality control. Every single Otium kayak is tested to ensure 3.5mm thickness, drop tested to ensure perfect plastic bond, balance tested for optimal stability, and water tested to ensure perfect seals. So rest assured your kayak will last for years to come.

I run a sea kayaking business in Melbourne so I was keen to purchase an Otium single Kayak and try it out. I have had it for 4 months and so far so good. It has good speed, rudder controls are great (foot peddles are fixed but pivot to turn left and right). Storage is good for overnight but perhaps not huge space if you go for more than 3 days. I am 6 foot 3 so that is probably the max height or leg length for this kayak. Service is great.
