1st AquaPod in 1971
The AquaPod is a unique craft that is especially well suited for sportsmen and is found across the United States and Canada. One of the primary uses has been as a duck hunting boat. Its versatility makes it an essential tool in the freelance waterfowler’s kit and opens up access to new fishing holes. Since no boat ramp is needed, use it to access shallow marshes, as a layout boat on open water, a sneak boat, or decked out as a portable blind. The AquaPod will help you get more limits without sacrificing safety. AquaPod customers include the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife and fish and game agencies from several states.
The primary design feature of the AquaPod is its stability. Your dog can jump out and climb back in without swamping the boat. You can change positions quickly and shoot or cast from a sitting or kneeling position without fear of capsizing. The low profile design of the AquaPod enables hunters to become a natural part of their surroundings. The molded-in keel tracks straight to maneuver easily and skim through the water without getting snagged on aquatic vegetation or hung up when paddling shallow water.

The SPORT model of the AquaPod includes the basic design features of the original Pod, but in rotomolded polyethylene construction. The ten foot AquaPod SPORT delivers classic AquaPod stability and maneuverability.
The lightest weight and premium AquaPod is the EXPLORER, which is constructed using the latest composite technology, and delivers the highest strength to weight ratio.
The AquaPod will fit on any factory roof rack that has cross bars. The AquaPod can also be used as a car-top carrier when loaded right side up and filled with gear.
The AquaPod is lighter and more versatile than other boats of its kind. It is lethal for teal in the marsh and bluebills on open water. The hull is designed for maximum stability, and its shape makes the AquaPod easy to camouflage.
Typically four inches. This will vary based on how much gear is in the boat.
Most people use the 8 foot AquaPod to hunt without a dog. The 8 foot AquaPod is maneuverable and fast enough that you retrieve birds by paddling.
Two people can enjoy recreational paddling in the ten foot AquaPod, but it is not large enough for two hunters and all their gear.
