NDK Pilgrim Series: Smaller Boats for Smaller Paddlers

The Pilgrim series is designed for the lighter or thinner paddler seeking an NDK style boat in a narrower straight running hull that is much quicker edge to edge. The new Echo has been designed to replace the low volume (LV) Pilgrim and Pilgrim Expedition. MIKCo still has a Pilgrim LV and a Pilgrim Expedition LV in stock.

At Maine Island Kayak Co, all new full price boat sales include custom foam fitting: a personalized process that brings our world class boats into a league of their own.


Smaller boats with features that belie their size.

About NDK Pilgrims

The Pilgrim is a responsive, fast, and efficient kayak designed for the small or slim paddler. The narrow hull offers quick acceleration to higher speeds while requiring far less effort to place and hold up on edge. It is easily turned and controlled even in strong winds, and rolls like all NDK Greenland style kayaks. The Pilgrim fits the small kayaker due to its lighter paddler design and narrow beam, and is also comfortable for the taller, slim kayaker due to the knee bumps on either side of the cockpit. The higher knee position increases leverage and power.

The Pilgrim is fitted with an adjustable high performance composite seat available in two widths. It has a smaller keyhole cockpit for excellent grip and control, a low rear deck for easy rolling, and a sloping bulkhead behind the seat for quick efficient emptying by simply lifting the bow; no x-rescue is necessary.

Recommended paddler weight: 90-140 lbs.
