This transparent kayak is next-generation sightseeing; chuck a pair of flippers along with a mask and snorkel in there and you’re all set for any shallow-reef adventure.
Made by The Crystal Kayak Company, the Crystal Explorer is an all-transparent two-passenger kayak made out of the same durable polycarbonate material used in the production of bulletproof glass and fighter jet canopies; so it can stand up to the scratches and scrapes of reef exploration and weighs only 40 lbs (18 kg). It comes equipped with an anodized aluminium internal frame system (which is removable for storage), dual flotation bladders and a three-quart water bailer.

With a low deck and adjustable seats, the kayak is easy to manoeuvre for a single paddler in flat-water conditions. A wide hull keeps you steady and adds to the awesome underwater visibility, which is the standout feature of the Crystal Explorer.
