The 10 Best Kayak Carts

This review has been updated 24 times since it was first published in September of 2015. You’re going to get enough exercise while paddling your kayak or canoe, so you might as well make it easy on yourself when transporting your vessel to the water by using one of these dollies. The carts we’ve selected can handle a variety of terrains, are designed for hassle-free pulling — even after an exhausting day on the water, and should stand up to years of constant use. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the review.
