Delphin 155

This new P&H Delphin 155 turns traditional sea kayak design on its head and challenges many preconceived ideas of how a sea kayak should look and behave. The cockpit has been moved backwards and the stern squared off so the bow just kisses the water, but when paddling, the stern engages and aids tracking. This combination is unique to the Delphin, creating a kayak that is long enough to paddle like a traditional sea kayak on flat water, with enough speed to keep up with the pack. It transforms into a new genre of free-ride sea kayak when it hits moving water, coming alive in tide races, over falls and surging water. It’s one of our best boat for ambitious paddlers as well, who want to wander far and wide in the wilds of Lake Jocassee.
