NDKs on Halifax Island

Hand Built in Anglesey, Wales since 1993

One of the largest retailers of Nigel Dennis Kayaks since their introduction in 1993, MIKCo maintains a complete demo fleet here on Peaks Island. We encourage you to come paddle and try out our boats in our real world conditions. NDKs are go-to boats for paddlers in challenging seas. As guides and coaches, we trust them to perform and stand up to years of rough water play and expeditioning. Yet their comfort and ease also provide a proven platform for athletic beginners and intermediates rapidly growing their skill sets in new waters. Also see our Retail Flyer of all new, in-stock NDKs.

With so many designs and models to choose from, which kayak is “the best”? Tom Bergh offers Thoughts on Fitting, Demoing and Choosing a Sea Kayak to assist you in evaluating any kayak you paddle.

The Romany is an award winning,  responsive, stable, all-around performer. The Romany series includes the Classic, Surf, Excel, Low Volume (LV), and Rotomolded (RM) Sport and Sportive.

The Sport and its smaller "sister" version, the Sportive, are NDKs only rotomolded (RM) plastic sea kayaks. These boats exhibit legendary NDK performance and features at an attractive price point. RM boats are a favorite for rock gardening and all-around fun because of their durability.

The Explorer set a baseline for an all-day-comfortable, expedition style boat for medium-sized paddlers. Other models in the Explorer series are the High Volume (HV) and Low Volume (LV).

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 Pilgrim is a small day or weekend kayak; the Pilgrim Expedition is a faster, longer version.

The Echo is an expedition and play kayak for smaller paddlers. It's a fast, fun boat designed to handle well in wind, surf, and rough water. It replaces the low volume versions of the Pilgrim and Pilgrim Expedition.

The Latitude is a narrow expedition kayak designed for the mid-sized or tall, thin paddler. The length of the kayak is extended by 2” immediately behind the seat, which keeps the stern of the  kayak from riding lower in the water as it’s paddled forward.

The Quantum is a fast expedition kayak with a huge load carrying capacity for the medium to large paddler. The innovative rudder design self-centers into a recess in the deck when retracted.

The Greenlander Pro is one of NDK’s range of hard chined kayaks based on traditional Inuit design. It has a keyhole cockpit, and is suitable for the medium to large sized paddler.
