Innova Kayaks Halibut Inflatable Fishing Kayak HAL-0016-000
The Innova Halibut is the perfect fishing kayak to get into those secret fishing spots that your hard shell boat cannot - which is why this kayak is very popular amongst anglers. This 12’3” fishing kayak weighs in at only 46 lbs., but has an impressive maximum capacity of 441 lbs! Most brands’ inflatable boats only inflate to 2 psi – not Innova. Innova’s boats all inflate to an industry-leading 3 psi, which makes for greater control and a very firm hull. They are also made out of an ultra-tough, puncture and abrasion resistant rubber material called Nitrylon™. The Halibut fully inflates in less than 10 minutes, and when you’re through with it, packs nicely into an easy to carry 26 gallon dry transport bag. Since the Halibut is so easy to transport, there’s no reason not to take it with you on all outdoor expeditions, just in case you stumble upon a great fishing hole!
The Innova Halibut is made stable by a floor plank made of slip-resistant plywood. Its high-standing adjustable seat will provide you with great comfort while you’re out there trolling the waters. Fully-loaded is an understatement when it comes to the Halibut. This “angler’s dream” comes decked out with the following:
• Canon rod holder
• Tracking fin
• Attachable trays
• Fish finder mounts
• Metal probe bracket for sonar
• Cup holders
• Integrated splash decks
• Anchor line
• Paddle rests (paddle not included, but we have some here!)
Here’s the bottom line: if you love fishing, the Halibut by Innova Kayaks is a no-brainer and a MUST have.

Founded over 20 years ago, Innova Kayaks is the North American distributor of popular European inflatable kayaks, manufactured by Gumotex in the Czech Republic. Since then, Innova has sold flat water and moderate whitewater inflatable boats.
Unlike many other inflatables, Innova Kayaks’ boats are made from rubber – not PVC. This rubber material, Nitrylon™, is a lamination of nitrile synthetic rubber and natural rubber over a 1,200-denier, low stretch polyester fabric. Nitrylon™ is very puncture and abrasion resistant, and considerably stronger and better performing than PVC. This same material is actually used in high-end, Zodiac-Type tenders and high-end whitewater rafts. Each Innova boat has 3 main air chambers, plus other small ones for seats, decks, etc. These air chambers inflate to 3 psi, instead of the 2 psi industry standard.
Green is one way to describe Innova Kayaks. PVC gives off dioxins into the environment. Not only is Nitrylon™ stronger and better performing than PVC, but it is also very eco-friendly. It can easily be recycled, and in 2010, Innova started the first inflatable kayak and canoe recycling program.
In this day and age, people are traveling and moving around more than ever before in history. Convenience is becoming less of a luxury and more of a necessity. Innova’s boats fully inflate in just minutes, and when you’re done, they fold up small enough to fit into a bag the size of a small duffle bag. They are lightweight, very easy to carry and transport, and can be stored in tight places – even in an airplane as carry-on.
Over the years, Innova Kayaks has been the recipient of many awards, endorsements, and features in the boat and boat fishing industries. The quality, convenience, and track record of Innova Kayaks proves that they have THE boats you want to own.
