Excellent Kayak and Stellar Customer Service

Purchased the kayak earlier this year (February 2021) and waited about 2-3 months to receive the product from the manufacturer. These delays were communicated prior to the purchase by Kayak Creek as well as once the order was submitted. Upon receiving my order, it was noticed that at some point during shipping someone punctured the hull of the boat with a forklift tine. This damage was no fault of Kayak Creek’s nor Nucanoe, and was solely on the shipping company. After communicating with both Matt at Kayak Creek and multiple team members at Nucanoe, the issue was rectified in my favor and all parties went above and beyond to make sure that I was taken care of. Even with the hole in the hull, which I had patched with plastic welding, gator guard patches, and flex seal tape and spray, I am able to get out on the water for hours at a time with no worries about capsizing. All of my hunting/fishing buddies are wanting to pick one up for themselves as well as it is just an absolute tank. Flat ope. water with a dog, or tight skinny water that is a bit sketchy for even smaller boats, this boat will handle it all. Surprisingly I was able to just skate right through some rapids and rock gardens with having to get out maybe a handful of times.

Even copperheads jump at the chance to hop in the boat and give it a spin.

All in all, I am in love with this boat and aside from the shipping damage which was solely due to the freight company. could not thank Kayak Creek (namely Matt) and Nucanoe for making this experience a pleasurable one,

Frontier 12

Great quality from bow to stern. Couldn’t be happier. Going to use this for waterfowl hunting, getting to secluded areas for turkey and deer locations as well as fishing. This kayak fits all of those needs. Great customer service as well. They always responded quickly with all information I needed for all my purchases.

Good experience with purchasing a kayak

I worked with Matt from Kayak Creek to purchase two kayaks. The purchase was done via the telephone and email. Matt was extremely helpful and responded to all my inquires in a timely fashion. I am very pleased with my interaction with Kayak Creek and will purchase from them again in the future.

Great Service

Great company to deal with. Matt worked hard to work out the details of getting me a canoe to me while I was on the road.

He arranged for me to pick my Frontier 12 in Denver, then when the manufacturer couldn’t fulfill my paddle order, he found a paddle for me through a competitor and arranged for it to be delivered to my next destination.

Then...... when I decided to purchase a casting bar Matt again worked out the details of getting it to me while I was still traveling.

His service was definitely above and beyond what one normally gets from even companies that offer great service.

Thanks for all your hard work Matt! You helped make an incredible fishing summer!

Owned many kayaks and the Flint is the most comfortable and customizable out there. If you fish or hunt this is the kayak for you.
