Dennis and his wife, Lee, love travelling around WA in their 4WD and off-road caravan.
When they arrived at the Stunning Ningaloo Coast, they saw a couple kayaking on Ningaloo Reef and thought “wow, wouldn’t it be wonderful to be out on the water … but what a hassle to get roof racks and transport heavy, bulky kayaks (hoping they don’t get stolen)”. It didn’t seem worth the bother.
But then, something totally unexpected happened…
The couple paddled into shore, deflated their kayak and packed it up into a bag! Amazing!
Dennis and Lee had never even thought about an inflatable kayak as an option before. They had a good chat with the couple about their AdvancedFrame Convertible inflatable kayak from Advanced Elements and knew that it would be perfect for them.
Dennis initially looked at getting one from the USA, but with the cost of shipping and the risk of buying from overseas (good luck with returns), they decided to buy one locally.
And now, here they are kayaking on Hamersley Inlet in Fitzgerald River National Park, WA.
Their traveling friends were so impressed, they got one of their own!
Dennis has promised to send me some pictures when they go kayaking at Ningaloo Reef later this year.
If you want to go kayaking on Hamersley Inlet in Fitzgerald River National Park, here are the details:
Fitzgerald River National Park is in the south of Western Australia, near Ravensthorpe. Hamersley Inlet is an ideal environment for kayaking and bird watching.
The Hamersley Inlet Campground has road access that goes right down to the water. Nice and easy for getting your kayaks in and out of the water.
The AdvancedFrame Convertible inflatable kayak is ideal for a couple traveling with a caravan because it is:
- convertible – can be paddled solo or tandem
- quick and easy to set up – ideal if you want to go out for just an hour or so
- stable on the water – easy to paddle if you don’t have a lot of experience
- very supportive and comfortable for relaxing
- a delight to paddle – goes straight and fast
- versatile – can handle open ocean, mild rivers, lakes, bays – can do an hour or a multi-day expedition
BUT, it might not be the right kayak for you.
It’s a lot of money down the drain if you get the wrong model, so it’s worth asking for my advice!Click HERE to get your FREE personalised kayak recommendation
About Oz Inflatable Kayaks
Hi, my name is Emily and over a decade ago I thought to myself “gee, I would really love to go kayaking … if only I had a big strong butler to help me get a kayak on and off roof racks. Oh, and several thousand dollars for the kayak and the roof racks (not to mention the cost of the butler)”.
To find a way to go paddling without a heavy hard-shell kayak, I started looking into inflatable kayaks. But I did NOT want a pool toy.
The Advanced Elements range of inflatable kayaks really blew me away (excuse the terrible pun).
I realised that the quality was not just about durability, it also meant that the kayaks were comfortable and easy to paddle straight and fast.
It just so happens that I was also looking for a business opportunity at the same time…
Nowadays I specialise (and delight) in selling Advanced Elements inflatables to all kinds of people in Australia.
I know the range so well that I do personalised recommendation videos to help people choose the right kayak.
It’s a no-obligation service that I enjoy doing AND it helps me in the long run because my customers that get a recommendation get the right kayak, first time. They are HAPPY customers!Click HERE to get your FREE personalised kayak recommendation
