The beauty of glow-in-the-dark kayaks is that they make it easier to kayak at night. This can either be super tranquil or a full-on party — thanks to the neon lights and Bluetooth speakers — depending on your mood.
Imagine sitting in a boat on the lake as you watch the sunset from your kayak-canoe. Then, you start paddling around, your boat illuminating your path, as the city skyline lights up before your eyes. Play some music on the Bluetooth speakers and—pure magic.
