In 1998, Kitt tried and loved kayaking but was unable to find a knowledgeable dealer in Central NY. His first kayak let him down, as the dealer didn't recommend a kayak more appropriate for his size and use. After just 3 months he upgraded to a better kayak and decided to open a kayak shop where customers wouldn't make the same mistakes he made. At the Camillus Kayak Shop we sell touring and recreational kayaks that meet our standards for performance and reliability.
After designing, building and racing kayaks, and over a decade in the retail business, Kitt and his wife, Kathy, have honed their abilities in finding the best value for the paddling dollar. Over the years, the shop has carried almost every available brand, constantly re-evaluating them based on price and performance.
In 2011, the shop added Stand Up Paddleboards to the mix, with both displacement and planing hulls.
In our 3500+ square foot showroom you can see over 60 models of kayaks, including 30+ models in composite, as well as SUP's from Lakeshore Paddleboard Company, Imagine, Liquid Shredder, and Zegul; open year-round!
Rentals, Lessons, Gift Certificates, and Delivery Service are also available.
