Local Delivery

Kayaks and Stand Up Paddleboards are only available for in-store pickup or local delivery within the Puget Sound area of Western Washington. Delivery is available for free on new boat and board purchases of at least $1500 and within 30 miles of our Port Gamble, Washington store. A ferry surcharge may apply for deliveries to Seattle and the east side of Puget Sound. We do not have the ability to ship Kayaks or SUP's, other than inflatables, outside of Western Washington at this time.

The same geography which makes the Puget Sound area such a wonderful place to paddle, also makes it difficult for us to make deliveries. We all love riding the ferries, but they sure can get expensive! Deliveries to Seattle and the east side of Puget Sound on purchases under $3000 are subject to a ferry surcharge up to $60. See the map for approximate delivery radius. If you add the boat or board to your cart we have a shipping calculator which will show you if delivery is available for your address, and whether any charges will apply. If you are outside of this area or have any other special considerations you can give us a call at (360) 297-4659 and we will be happy to see what we can work out for you.

The Current Designs Whistler now features increased foot room, making it a great option for paddlers wanting to move up from a recreational kayak or start out with a seaworthy transitional design.

Stable and very user friendly, the upswept bow makes the Whistler highly maneuverable while keeping you dry when waves kick up. A great kayak for activity oriented paddlers like photographers or fishermen.

The Whistler perfectly bridges the gap between recreational and sea kayaks. This boat is stable enough for beginners, but also rewards good paddling. With ample storage – in addition to efficient design – photographers, enthusiasts and fishermen alike will discover a boat they will look forward to launching every time. 



Keyhole Cockpit
The Kestrel features a keyhole cockpit that blends the openness of a recreational cockpit and the integrated thigh braces of a touring cockpit. The result is an easy to enter and exit cockpit that offers performance, fit, and solid connectivity to the kayak.
Revolution Seating System
This one-of-a-kind rotating axis seat gives unmatched full contact under-leg support. Quickly adjustable with a lever-lock system, you can customize the seats position for your personal paddling style and comfort level. Contoured plush foam padding cover the bottom and sides of the seat allowing for hours of luxurious paddling comfort.
Dimension Adjustable Seat Back
A fully articulating and height/angle adjustable back rest. This dynamic combination creates the most comfortable and ergonomically functional seating system ever seen.
Vision Hatch Covers
A simple and easy flip-to-open rear hatch cover makes storing your gear a breeze. The flip-locks and compression seal combine to make this cover very water resistant while keeping your gear readily accessible with just the flip of the levers.


Design Features:

  • Fish Form: Widest ahead of the cockpit, Fish form kayaks have a more blunt entry but will have a more slender exit through the water. The bows typically have more flare and are usually more buoyant than others. This enables our shorter boats to be excellent surf zone kayaks. Longer kayaks benefit from this feature in large seas.
  • Soft Chine: A smooth transition from the bottom of the hull to the sides. Soft chines give smooth edging at unlimited angles. The majority of kayaks that we build have a soft chine.
  • Shallow V: The “V” hull shape improves tracking, has a lively feel and delivers very comfortable stability.
