Delta Kayaks Delta 10 Kayak -

The Delta 10 kayak from Delta Kayaks uses a catamaran-style hull to achieve remarkable stability and excellent tracking.


Lining and Layers:

  • The Delta 10 features 2 tie down points at bow and stern that offer a secure place to attach a bow line


  • Thermoformed ABS plastic hull material is stiff and light like traditional composite kayaks and offers similar looks, but costs considerably less


  • Molded cockpit area with adjustable foot pegs personalizes comfort to fit most any size paddler; soft, padded seat keeps things comfortable during long days on the water


  • Small depressions behind cockpit are designed to lash down and hold your paddle


  • Seat forms a watertight bulkhead with the rear compartment and offers excellent flotation when hatch is in place
  • Cup holder near the cockpit offers easy access to beverages
  • Clear window in the cockpit floor lets you view the environment below the surface
  • Rear compartment offers roomy dry storage for day-tripping gear
  • Carry handles at the bow and stern are molded into the boat itself and make carrying the boat a breeze
  • Specially coated exterior offers a new, shiny appearance for years to come— the Delta 10 does not suffer from the gradual fade typical of composite watercraft
  • Front storage pod under deck provides dry shelter for small items and adds extra flotation when sealed; pod faces you when in the cockpit and seals with a watertight screw
  • Bungee rigging offers plenty of room for take-along gear
  • Catamaran-style hull enhances stability without adding the width typical of standard recreational kayaks

Very stable rec kayak

We have two of these, paid extra to special order one in yellow to avoid confusion. Spent 3 days last weekend at Hilton Head, paddling lagoons, tidal rivers, intracoastal waterway, following dolphins, and they were great for that. The catamaran-shaped hull does make for noisiness up front in light chop, my only complaint. These more than adequately replace a tandem kayak with rudder that got too heavy as we got older. And which had no real dry storage, which we didn't realize was a problem until we got swamped once by the wake from a large yacht. Since everything behind the seat is dry storage on the Delta 10, and it has that neat storage pod in front, we don't expect a repeat. And, it is extremely stable - what a joy to get in and out of! And the 3/4 inch holes at front an back ends made them easy to secure in my pickup bed with sturdy bicycle cable locks.

Negative Reviews:

Not for entry kayak for adults

Took it out for testing at a calm lake. A slight breeze was blowing. Asked my husband to come along so I could gauge speed relative to my longer kayak. It is very light and easy to carry. It tracks well and is maneuverable in flat, flat water. With even a slight breeze, it requires more effort than a 10 foot Dagger with skeg. The noise factor was mentioned in a lot of reviews I read, but I didn't realize that it even applies when wind-caused ripples hit the bow. The cup holder and the clear plastic view of the lake floor is gimmicky and the cup holder does get in the way if you use it. Primary stability good; but may be hard to get back in if one capsized -- didn't test this, just a conjecture. Will be returning and thankful for REI return policy. Wish it had been a bit easier to handle -- it's a great weight for someone short. A bit pricey for a child's kayak, but I wouldn't recommend it as an entry kayak for adults.

Neutral Reviews:

A good craft, but only for some.

LIKE: The kayak is light and short enough that one person can easily load/unload it from the car, and carry it around with one arm. At 5'8", I don't have any problem hoisting it over my head and walk it up 3 flights of stairs to my apartment. It is stiff, track well, maneuverable, responsive, extremely stable, ample storage, and can easily glide through shallow waters. The front storage pod is also a neat feature. I can sit on top of the hull and paddle with ease. And, with care, even stand up.

DISLIKE: The mold-in seat is a stiff, short straight back, and no lumbar support. After the first hour, my back would ache. The built-in cup holder is positioned at the crotch so you can't slouch back to a relaxing position without having your tail bone crushed. This kayak is too bouncy in choppy water. Due to design, the front of the hull is flat. Choppy water would slap against this flat hull and is very annoying. DELTA should change the front hull design to a traditional V shape.

NEUTRAL: Flat waters in my area are too murky so I can't give the port view a fair review. Personally, I think it's too small to be of any real value.

Overall, I like this kayak. I had to return it because the dislikes are too annoying to ignore. It is an excellent kayak for those that wish to use it for a short day trip on flat waters and calm days -- and I do stress FLAT. This kayak is great for kids and beginners for its remarkable primary and secondary stability. For experienced adults, I don't recommend it.
