A tandem model with three seating positions for solo or tandem paddling!
Maxxon's most popular model! The Cayman II is large enough for two people and gear, but it's light and short enough to be easily paddled and handled by one person by clipping one seat into the center paddling position.
The Cayman II is designed and constructed for use in rougher water, lakes, rivers or the ocean. The removable tracking fin can be used in flat water, to improve the performance and speed.
Stiff-backed seats offer comfort and support, while the super-tough shell construction provides long-term durability.
The Cayman II is also a good choice for larger/taller paddlers as a solo option while still leaving room for storing gear.
With the included carrying case, seats, breakdown paddles and pump, you can stash the Cayman II in the trunk of your car, or take it on your next vacation!

I bought this on a Wed. and it was delivered by Friday - just on time for the weekend!
I put about 11 miles on the kayak the next day on the rogue river through numerous class ii and one class III rapid. Performance wise, the kayak did well. It was stable, easy to manuever and tracked pretty well. The one thing that it did not do well is self bail. It only has one bailing hole in the rear which can't handle being hit by a large wave. The class III filled the kayak to the top, I had to pull to shore to drain the boat for fear I'd be in the next rapid and not able to handle the now very heavy kayak (I probably had 200 extra pounds of water in the boat).
Past that, I really enjoyed piloting the kayak down the river and it's a worthy addition to my fleet, but I think I need to solve this bailing issue somehow.
Note from AirKayaks:
Thanks for the detailed review! The Cayman II is not a self-bailing kayak, and is not specifically designed for whitewater. It has a drain hole, which is only meant to help let out water from a standard kayak ride.
Maxxon does make a self-bailing kayak with multiple plugs/drainholes. This is the Maxxon MK1205.

I bought this kayak a little over a month ago. I have paddled it in the Occoquan River and done a descent bit of fishing out of it. I have also paddled it out in the ocean at the Outer Banks of NC to do a little fishing as well.
This kayak tracks well. It is easy to paddle and it handles well. It is comfortable. Setting it up takes about 5 minutes. Packing it down is easy too.
As far as fishing, I am trying to figure out a way to place fishing rod holders (mainly for fly rods). It is a stable and comfortable platform for fishing. There are plenty of places to hook gear into so you don't loose it.
Buy yourself a dry bag to put the pump and other items. It is handy as storage when in the kayak bag or for putting items in when you paddle out in the ocean. I swamped the kayak but it still was floating afterward.

The kayak arrived in Sydney from you in the USA in 4 days very efficient service, it then took 5 days to get to me on the Sunshine Coast.
It arrived yesterday, Friday morning, I did not get a chance to unpack and get set up until this morning. After lunch I took it to the lake, a friend came with me with a Flying Hobbie Tri-craft. It was windy and quite choppy. I paddled for a hour then put up the sail and cruised home, what fun!
I thought the kayak tracked well, paddled well, even with the choppy waves I got no water in the kayak. I felt safe the whole time never unstable. I am very happy with my purchase. Many thanks for your advise I feel I now have exactly what I was looking for and am looking forward to many fun outings.
