Conquest Adventures Inflatable Clear Bottom Kayak ($798.95)

(Conquest Adventures)

Sometimes, even getting in the water isn’t close enough to the action. They say that between 50 and 80 percent of all life on Earth can be found below the ocean’s surface—don’t miss any bit of that with this kayak, which features a clear bottom perfect for spotting fish and marine life while staying (hopefully) relatively dry. The Conquest Adventures two-person kayak even comes with a dual-action chamber air pump, which inflates the craft in ten minutes or less, meaning you’ll spend less time than ever with the boring 20 percent of life stuck on land.
