Old Town Predator PDL Kayak comes to Dive Now Whangarei

Simon has just taken possesion of this pedal powered kayak. 

After many years of paddling around the harbour and the heads, I am ready to give this awesome kayak a test. I have it set up in store so you can see how easy it would be to use to dive from.  I will try to get some footage of it in action over the next few months both fishing and diving.

Being peddle powered you can travel further and faster than a regular sit on top fishing kayak that you would paddle.  You can hold your position over the reef in a current, plus go with the fish if it starts taking too much line.

The stability and space available makes it a good freediving vessel.  I will try to scuba dive from it too.

Rob Fort from Reel Screaming Kayaks, has some videos of him fishing and and diving from the Predator PDL as do some other YouTube based divers/fishers.

Watch this space, but feel free to come in to have a look and a chat.  We can book in a demo too.
