Updated design for 2018! A small, lightweight backpacking kayak, perfect for travel and remote locations - now with Leafield D7 valves.

2018 models arriving in Spring 2018. Ask to get on our Notification List. We do have the 2017 Castaway available. AirKayaks special - free Cannon Nokomis 230cm carbon breakdown paddle ($159 value) with purchase, while supplies last. Automatically added at checkout.

At a mere 7.3 lbs, the new 7.5 foot 2018 Kokopelli Castaway PackRaft is an exceptional choice for paddlers needing lightweight, yet durable, touring options.


All Kokopelli packrafts now come with upgraded Leafield D7 military valves. The two-chamber design provides greater safety than traditional one-chamber packrafts, while one-inch seam welds with reinforced tape ensure durability and the highest-quality, air-holding properties. Built to exacting specifications, the Castaway lightweight PackRaft's sidewalls are constructed from a 210 denier, double-coated nylon, while the hull underside features a beefed-up 840 denier material.


Eleven-inch diameter tubes ensure stability on the water as well as providing some protection from swells. Six integrated nylon d-rings serve as convenient gear-tie downs.


For 2018, the Castaway models have been redesigned with 30% more volume in the stern. This provides more buoyancy and a slightly lower waterline, eliminating water pooling issues. Also for 2018, a new bottom hull construction makes the packrafts more rigid. By repositioning where the hull bottom attaches to the side chambers, and including an inflatable seat base, the paddler sits a bit higher and doesn’t sag down in the boat. This in turn improves the backband support (it is now positioned lower on the back), as well as making it easier to paddle over the side chambers. Together, these improvements eliminated the need for an inflatable floor, saving on weight.


With the included inflation bag, the Castaway can be ready for the water in less than five minutes.

The Castaway is perfect for flat-to-mild water environments (Class I and II) and can easily be backpacked to remote locations, taken on camping trips, tossed on a plane or stashed in an RV. The high portability and open design provides easy entry for seniors and those with disabilities.

Also comes with a repair kit and two compression straps for easy storage.
