Azul Atlantis Lite Kayak Review

The Atlantis Lite sit inside kayak from Azul is just the ticket for those interested in getting started kayaking. Its ease of entry and exit and large cockpit ensures you won’t feel claustrophobic. The impressive handling in chop will ease anxiety and please those ascending the skills ladder.


Comfort and convenience are well handled with the Azul Atlantis Lite kayak. Not only is the Azul Atlantis Lite sure footed, but it’s very safe and incredibly easy to portage. At only 41 lbs, the Atlantis Lite is a snap to shoulder carry from your car to the shore. Azul has provided convenient carry handles at both the bow and stern, and the comfortable thermofoam seat keeps you purring while you paddle. To keep you completely dry from paddle drip, the optional spray skirt is certainly a nice touch.


Unfortunately, Azul has gone under due to economic troubles. While Riot Kayak, the mother company, is still alive and well, Azul is now out of production and as such the Azul Atlantis Lite kayak is in limited availability. If you can get your hands on an Atlantis Lite kayak, I’m sure you’ll be impressed by the quality to cost ratio.

Overall Review

I would rate my review of the Azul Atlantis Lite kayak as 4 out of 5. The Azul Atlantis Lite kayak is ideal for an initiation to kayaking or to enjoy years of leisurely pleasure. Comfortable and maneuverable, its advanced tri-hull design provides stability and the sure-tracking ride required by recreational paddlers. A wide cockpit ensures nobody feels claustrophobic, and the adjustable seatback and foot pegs allow paddlers of all shapes and sizes to get the control and comfort found on much more expensive kayaks.

The Azul Atlantis Lite is further enhanced by a fishing rod holder, and adjustable backrest with thermofoam seat and back covers. The Atlantis Lite kayak even has the Easy Drain System – so you can easily drain the cockpit when taking on water! This is such an advantage when your cockpit has mud or sand in it. At 9’6” in length and weighing only 41lbs, the Atlantis Lite is easily portaged and car topped. It will bring years of fun paddling and kayak fishing!

    Azul makes some of the best products on the market. The Atlantis Lite is one of the finest I’ve ever tried.
