Sunset Tour - Nov 21, 2008

A beautiful sunset was what was asked for, as you'll see in the photos, it was delivered!
Our paddlers were visiting from Pennsylvania and England, both families agreed that Islamorada was a better choice, given the time of the year and the weather back home. Thanks for spending another great sunset with Backcountry Cowboy Outfitters.

Native Ultimate ProPel Pedal Drive - Islamorada

(above, Great turn radius at the end of the video)

(above, Pedal Drive in Reverse)

(above, Retracting the Pedal Drive unit, approaching shore)

The Native Watercraft Ultimate ProPel Pedal Drive has made it's debut in Islamorada! What a fun kayak. Very comfortable, stable and fast. A very dry kayak, the Ultimate Pedal drive leaves the paddler as dry at the end of trip, as they were when they started.

This will make getting to the bonefish flats here in the Florida Keys or the flooded lakes of Everglades National Park's 'No Motor Zones' a breeze.

Ultimate 12 Pedal Drive (solo) or Ultimate 14.5 Pedal Drive (solo)

Stop by and see for yourself.
