THE 2016 OUTFITTER VERSION WITH THE UPGRADED 1.2MM PVC DROP STITCH FLOOR AND 1.5MM PVC BOTTOM PROTECTION COVERING IS NOW AVAILABLE ($200 VALUE). THE OUTFITTER FLOOR TECHNOLOGY AND MATERIAL THICKNESS COMBINES FOR THE MOST RIGID INFLATABLE KAYAK FLOOR ON THE MARKET AT OVER 10 PSI!

Our newest 13' Saturn Whitewater Kayaks just arrived and now come with upgraded Leafield C7 Valves ($80 Value), our 1.5mm thick PVC "Alaska Series" bottom protection for the side tubes and floor, and upgraded accessories. In addition, we've kept our pricepoint the same for 2017 to celebrate the 10 year annivesary of this award winning product. You simply won't find a tandem inflatable kayak on the marketplace the represents the value you get with the new 13' Saturn WW Kayak. Optional high-back foam seats are also available ($100 for a pair) and are recommended for whitewater kayak conditions due to their lower profile. 

The "Outfitter" upgrade option provides a second layer of interwoven PVC into the material of the dropstitch floor improving the overall thickness over 50%. It was design for the everyday use by outfitters and guides but is a great option for those looking for some added protection in the area where most of the wear occurs.

Older 13' Saturn WW Kayak - Packing for the Canyon Run

Simply put, these kayaks continue to be the best value on the inflatable whitewater kayak market today and won rave reviews in an outdoor magazine article in 2016. We continue to hear amazing stories of customers using them on remote expeditions, 70-mile canyon kayaking trips, as their preferred craft running Class IV+ whitewater, and even as a comfortable bed during multi-day canyon floats. Rated for commercial use our 13' Saturn Whitewater Kayak is ready for Class IV and larger rapids anywhere on the globe. This is a professional grade self-bailing kayak ready for the extreme adventurer looking to handle big whitewater. The 13’ length and 6” high-pressure inflatable air deck floor provide the perfect combination to accommodate 2 adults. Our new cold welded technology and material improvements provide a floor pressure rating over 10 psi (that's nearly 3 times the average in the industry and the most rigid floor in the inflatable market).

Saturn whitewater inflatable kayaks are highly rugged, extremely sturdy, will rival the performance of a hard-shelled kayak and provide the added convenience of being very portable and easily stored. The 13' Saturn Whitewater Kayak is perfect for someone that wants to take their kayak hiking, traveling or camping as well as be able to store it in a closet or throw in the trunk of a car. They offer supreme convenience, versatility and fun.

This inflatable kayak is made of the same heavy-duty 1100 Dtex PVC as our Saturn whitewater rafts with an extra 1.5mm PVC layer covering the entire bottom surface area. The floor is made of a 6" thick high-pressure air deck that is extremely rigid when inflated, but can be rolled up when deflated. The floor thickness is the same as the air deck floor design in our Saturn Whitewater Rafts. The 13' Saturn Whitewater Kayak comes with multiple pre-installed heavy-duty D-rings to easily accomodate different seating positions for the highback kayak seats (optional) and give you greater flexibility when paddling with 1-2 passengers.

What makes this kayak different from our Expedition series kayaks is the self-bailing capability and our industry leading 6" thick dropstitch floor. This design is a must for river conditions and also provides much greater capacity. Our Expedition kayaks have a 2" thick floor without the holes in the bottom for self bailing. If you're going to be taking on water during your use you'll need the self-bailing feature of the whitewater kayak.

We are also a full NRS dealer and can provide kayak package discounts including kayak paddles, helmets, PFD's, and other gear. Call us for custom package quotes at (800) 217-3270.

  • Heavy duty 1,100 Dtex High Strength PVC fabric coated on both side with 1100 g/m2, 0.9mm. Fabric is thick, puncture and abrasion resistant.
  • 6" thick high-pressure self-bailing inflatable air deck floor.
  • 10 Heavy-duty D-rings.
  • 2 towing/securing D-rings in front and back.
  • Upgraded Leafield C7 Valves ($80 upgrade value)
  • Additional accessories: 2 double-sided kayak paddles, repair kit and carry bag.
  • High pressure hand pump included.

13' Saturn WW Kayak - Brian Savage03/16 - Check out the great pictures just submitted by our customer Brian Savage!

I am late in writing to you, but wanted to say thanks for the Bomber IK. Our family has 2 of them now plus a 15' Whitewater Raft (pictured in 2011 Contest Winner Photo). We love our boats and have had numerous epic trips (Wild Scenic Rogue, various runs on the American, etc.). The attached photos are from a recent run on the American River (Satan's Cesspool in the Gorge). Thanks again for the quality boats... Brian

Great IK but it needs more "Upsweep" on the front and back! I like the optional seats and the floor! Overall a good boat but with a bit more upsweep for whitewater it would be a great boat!
We purchased two of these kayaks in June of 2016. We love them!! I highly recommend upgrading from the included thwarts to the high-back kayak seats. These kayaks are very comfortable. We have already been on numerous 4 to 5 hour adventures and nobody has ever complained about being uncomfortable or sore. These are "white water kayaks" that do NOT have rudders on the bottom. It can be a challenge to keep it going in a straight direction on a lake or in the ocean. They are very stable in the water! We haven't flipped one yet. My fifteen year old daughter was able to climb back in without capsizing it after swimming.

Running river canyons is essentially about riding that liquid filament, but for us it also means fishing and chukar hunting, camping, hiking and rock hounding, living off what we can catch or shoot, and playing call shot disc golf on a sagebrush flat after dinner.

These are inevitably fall trips for us; bird season doesn’t start until October. The scorching heat of high summer has moderated, but Indian summer weather is still the norm. As for the water, there is less of it, and the choice of boat to haul you and your swag through a boney crack in the earth can be decisive. Nowhere have I found this to be more so than the Owyhee. If you come from a rafting, river safari background, it’s a tough downsize. But self-supported with massive agendas in 100cfs through forty miles of rock garden means only one thing: IK. Just about the biggest, baddest one you can find. I once paddled a 20’ IK for two months out around the northwest tip of Vancouver Island but when we tried it on the Owyhee, it was like a Popsicle stick in a pinball machine—too many rocks and tight corners to maneuver a long boat through. It would be tempting to go pack raft or smaller, nimble IKs if we wanted to eat light and forget the ancillary interests. In the end we found that doubles are the best match, and Saturn’s 13’ White-water model, the very best of the bunch (and we tried many different brands). Pop out the extra seat and you’ve got sufficient room to pile the swag, while remaining small and nimble enough to negotiate the runs, to line and walk, even portage, when necessary. I especially like the extra roominess of the Saturn boat, and talk about bomber!
Footnote to dialing in the right boat for the Owyhee, we liked the results so much we picked up another Saturn duckie. We packed their Fishing Kayak into Ross Lake for a fly fishing magazine project, slipped in the removable skeg, paddled our over the deep blue water and caught the hell out of the local bows and dollies!
Took the 13'WW kayak out on Lake Mead last night with a 20 mph south wind and it swims great through wind chop,self bailing perfectly. Great boat.
We took the Kayaks out Saturday on some flat water and they handled great.
I purchased the 13 foot Saturn Whitewater Kayak and I really can't get over the quality of the boat. I looked at all of the other kayaks like the NRS mavrick, the tributes,and marivias they where too much for my buget. So I tryed this company I found on the internet called Saturn. I read what it said about fishing standing up out of a inflatable kayak and I said yea right. Well I did just that and more I actually paddled a Class II to III rapid called Bad Leg on the Greenbrier River WV standing up the second time on the water. The whitewater kayak has plenty of room for two people and equipment. I could have not asked for more D rings in the boat and the valves seem very well made. The floor removes completely for easy cleaning of the floor and the inside of the kayak. We also have a NRS 13 foot raft. So I have a little something to compare quality too. And I could not be more pleased with Kayak and or the service from Jeff and Saturn rafts.
