“Fantastic prices”

Written on: 08/08/2014 by DangeloMolloy (1 review written)

I couldn't believe the price I paid for my Go Sea Pioneer. I haven't seen anything cheaper than the Outdoor Hub website. And it was delivered the next day! I was nervous that when it turned up it wasn't going to be a good product, but it's superb. It's well built - it will probably last me a lifetime. It has a neat waterproof container built in, which I use for my mobile. I ordered the deluxe with a large seat which is very comfy. I use mine on our local canal and lakes. I wheel it down drop it… Read Full Review

“Perfect first kayak!”

Written on: 13/06/2014 by DarrenTrelor (1 review written)

I've only kayaked a few times in the past, mainly hiring. I decided i wanted to own my own as quite a few of my friends do and they keep telling me what fun they have, what great wildlife they see (and catch). I phoned up the Outdoor Hub in Truro who were helpful on the phone and talked me through the options and differences. I went into the shop and i saw the kayaks and they helped me pick one best suited for me - GoSea Glide. Mine and all the models seemed very reasonably priced. I've since… Read Full Review

“Gosea Angler Sport - Best Value Fishing Kayak in UK”

Written on: 07/05/2014 by Gowerbassmaster (1 review written)

Recently purchased this kayak from the Outdoor Hub after owning a boat for the past 5 years. I have been kayak fishing for 15 years prior to this and this is the 5th kayak I have owned, the last being an Ocean Kayak Malibu 2XL which I rigged to fish solo. OK so the Gosea is not quite as stable as the Malibu (I am a large lad at 17 stone) but it rides a swell well enough, is considerably quicker than the Malibu and comes fully equipped as standard. Fittings are comparable with those that I had… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/01/2014 by elliottdj23 (1 review written)

Hi I bought this kayak in the deluxe package from GoSea.. Ok first of all very happy with purchase, price and delivered on time as agreed. When I got my kayak there was a small amount of damage to my paddle.. I contacted the hubs who arranged a replacement immediately .. So again happy. Ok I have now taken the kayak out for the second day ins row(Jan)..I have been in kayaks several times before but not for a few years and I am no expert. It took me about 30min to get some confidence of how it… Read Full Review

“My Second GoSea kayak and still a fan”

Written on: 18/08/2013 by stone_john (1 review written)

I heard plenty of good things about GoSea from friends so purchased my first last summer which was the tandem version. I was thoroughly impressed with the price compared to everything else out there and have been equally happy with the build quality since. I hired an RTM while on holiday in France this year and have to say the GoSea is far better to paddle and seems more refined. So this spring I decided to get into kayak fishing and went for the GoSea Angler compact. Very stable, great quality… Read Full Review

“Extremely unstable ”

Written on: 15/07/2013

I purchased this kayak with out doing by research, not knowing to much about them. My first trip out I found the kayak extremely unstable compared to my friends perception. In just the slight choppyest of conditions the kayak will put you in the water and on this occasion the kayak filled with water, with only the two storage containers keeping it afloat and with me having to swim back to shore. The seat is uncomfy and the steering peddles for the rudder don't go fare enought inside the boat… Read Full Review

Not my experience at all, you should contact GoSea as they have been very helpful with me. I found a review at Northwaleskayakfishing.co.uk which really contradicts what is said here too.

I'm looking at buying my first kayak and I find reviews like this are very unhelpful! GoSea is a brand of kayaks, so saying it is unstable is pointless... what kayak is unstable? Model?

I'd agree with Stone_John, I've heard that if you get it touch with them, they'll help you sort things like this out.

“Gosea voyage kayak”

Written on: 13/07/2013

I bought this kayak as a family fun boat and I have to say I have not been disappointed. I am no expert kayaker, in fact this is only the second yak I have owned, the previous one being a pyrahna surf jet, which I did not get on with. The voyage 2+1 ticks all the right boxes for me, great for all the family to mess about with at the beach, fantastic value for money when compared to other big name boats and it all seems to be well built, I have four kids ranging from 7 to 16 years and they have… Read Full Review

“GoSea Vector sit-on-top kayak”

Written on: 02/09/2012 by rmkeatinge (1 review written)

I wanted a sit-on-top kayak for beach fun and for introducing newcomers to paddling. I wanted it small, light, and inexpensive. Performance requirements were modest, but reasonable directional stability was needed. By way of a shakedown cruise I've just taken this boat down the Menai Strait on a spring tide and it performed nicely. Not fast, but stable, manoeuvrable, and it was just about possible for me to load it onto the roof at the end of the trip. My previous sit-on-top needed two strong… Read Full Review

“Fine by me”

Written on: 01/08/2012

I have had one of these for a month now and must say it meets my needs, inshore kayaking/fishing and estuary/river paddling. Very stable and plenty of room. I have tried other sit-on-tops in the past and although this is not the fastest or the quickest to manoeuvre it is, in my opinion, well worth the money and loads of fun… Read Full Review

“Go Sea Vortex Kayak”

Written on: 07/08/2011

After reading some of the other reviews I honestly can't understand where the person who slates this kayak is coming from. Great quality, performs as well as any similar kayak I have used and is unbelievable value at the price I paid new. Sometimes you do "get what you pay for" but in this case you get a great product which does exactly what it says on the tin for at least £100 less than the closest comparable kayak I could find. I went out with a friend of mine who has the Go Sea Vector (very… Read Full Review

“Go Sea Vortex”

Written on: 03/08/2011 by tonyjohnson (1 review written)

I Purchased a Go Sea Vortex back in June and I have to say I have been very pleased with it, in fact I have been making any excuse to get on the water ever since! The kayak is light, easy to get on and off my car which is a big bonus for me as when I go to the beach with my wife and two small children there is lots to carry. Performance wise, it is good all round and I have been happy when paddling off the beach or up estuaries. The build quality is fantastic and I can see no discernible… Read Full Review

“Go sea kayaks”

Written on: 12/06/2011

After just returning from my friends house in Cornwall and spending two weeks paddling the Go sea kayaks he owns a vortex and osprey, I am glad to be using my own this afternoon On the river, the go sea kayaks add basis to The time old saying " you get what you pay for". Rubbish styling,inferior handling, poor design, And fittings that are sub standard all make for A cheap kayak that isn't fun to use. The go sea Vortex had the logo peeling when it was new and A leak from somewhere, we found… Read Full Review

There is a lifetime warranty on the hull, why didn't you take it back? A sticker falling off is hardly affecting its performance.
