FAQ's \t Are Kayaks stable? ABSOLUTELY! Kayaks are even more stable than canoes because you sit in the boat lower than the waterline. TANDEM KAYAKS ARE VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO TIP. Also Kayaks have a low freeboard which means that they are less prone to being pushed around by the wind AND you are using a double bladed paddle which makes them more efficient when your partner stops paddling! ;) 2. Can 3 ppl ride in one kayak? YES! Our Tandem Kayaks will hold up to 550 pounds and can easily fit 2 adults and 1 small child(Less than 50 pounds) in the middle. As long as total passengers and gear weight are under 550 pounds you are good to go. Best of all we dont charge extra for the 3rd person!
