The kayaking fleet is divided up into 3 fleets; touring kayaks, stable lesson kayaks and fitness/surf ski kayaks. We have built up a fleet of kayaks that will accommodate the recreational evening paddler through to the endurance paddler. This year Locarno has a fleet of plastic robust beginner kayaks; light weight fibreglass touring kayaks; skegs kayaks; and a range of surf skis. For a small rental fee, our members can take our kayaks away for the week or weekend. For more information on kayaking, you can contact the Kayaking Director at the club's Contact Us webpage.
Atlantis Mist Sport
The Mist is very similar to the WaV, but with a lower deck and a multi-chined hull. This makes it more responsive to edging and a better fit for smaller paddlers.
The Wav is great for medium size paddler but still has lots of legroom for tall people as well. The WaV tracks like a longer boat but responds well to a lean. Outfitted with Atlantis' form fitting thigh braces, bomber deck rigging and rugged rudder assembly makes the WaV a great boat for daytrips or multi-day paddling.
Atlantis Titan VI
Large and stable, a great boat for longer trips.
Fast, responsive skeg boat for touring, surfing, current or rough conditions - the favourite of experience paddlers.
The is a double kayak designed to outperform all rivals in it's class, the Talon is sleek, fast, lightweight and ultra durable.
Necky Eskia Outfitter
Our most stable single kayak, making it great for beginning kayakers. Lots of volume makes it a great touring kayak. Fits tall and heavier bodies.
Designed by women for women, the Necky Eliza day touring kayak empowers amateur to seasoned female kayakers to paddle farther more efficiently. One of our best kayaks - also suitable for light-framed men.
Nifty 430 is a medium sized sea kayak; its signature double chine gives the boat amazing secondary stability.
Fast touring kayak, less stable than most kayaks. Definitely for the more experienced paddler.
The Chilco has a multi-chined, low-rocker hull for high speed and effortless tracking. Well-defined chines allow the kayak to have a relatively small wetted surface and solid stability for edging turns. Solid day trip/touring boat for the advanced paddler.
The Luna provides paddlers under 180 lbs with a comfortable fit. It has good initial and secondary stability and handles adverse sea conditions very well. This kayak is at home on day trips, yet has enough storage space for multi-day expeditions. The Luna's slightly rockered hull enhances maneuverability ensuring long term enjoyment of this versatile craft.

Seaward Passat G3
Large and stable double. The Passat G3 has greater stability than most singles. It tracks well, with or without the rudder, edges easily and effortlessly tours at 5 knots. It is safe, strong and seaworthy even in challenging waters.
A bit smaller than most of our boats, this is a great day boat or overnighter. It is stable, but paddles like a dream, and is suitable for smaller paddlers. Another skeg boat, it is best suited to confident paddlers.
The classic sea kayak with moderate rocker and a skeg, sporty and responsive, designed for the experienced paddle. Ours is in poly, for extra durability and weight.
Our Surf Skis requiring more balance and technique, these boats are built for speed. In order of decreasing stability.
Fast, yet extremely stable, this is a surfski that most kayakers should be able to hop right onto and paddle off.
Designed from the ground up by Oscar Chalupsky, Greg Barton, and computer whiz John Dixon, the Epic V10 is incredibly fast and agile while maintaining comfortable stability.
The Think Eze is the ideal boat for a lot of people. It’s fast, fun, and sporty, with the soul of a racer, yet it’s 17′ x 20″ dimensions make it maneuverable, stable, and forgiving.
