"At sea, we found that the Komodo more than fulfilled our expectations.
It was very stable, tracked well and had excellent boat speed, even in the rough, choppy conditions that we experienced.
The storage capacity was phenomenal, effectively having 300 litres (or 4 backpacks) in the front and rear pods. This would allow you to do multi-week trips without having to skimp on essentials – or you could choose to take luxury items, like chairs and a table, on shorter trips.
It is worth noting that there is a restriction of 5 metres length on vehicles that travel on the Spirit of Tasmania and that, during December and January you may be charged an extra $500 if you exceed this length.
As many single sea kayaks are over 5 metres, we were fortunate to be able to transport the double Komodo sea kayaks in two halves, without the risk of attracting any excess charges."
