The Best Budget Model jumped out at me:

Rugged enough to traverse the entire length of the Amazon river twice, Sevylor’s classic Tahiti K79 two-person inflatable canoe comes in bright yellow. Produced since 1963, it features an I-beam floor for extra buoyancy, drain hole with plug, Boston valves, bow and stern spray decks, and specially designed inflatable seats with back support.



Length overall (LOA): 10 feet, 7 inches
Beam: 2 feet, 7 inches
Weight: 25 pounds
Capacity: 2 persons
Weight capacity: 400 pounds


Only $100, … but 25lbs is too heavy for a solo trip.

This BOAT would be good for a 2 person paddle + hike adventure, though.

Leave a comment if you have a solo kayak model you recommend. Lighter than 25lbs.
