The OC Paddle Ocean Tandem Kayak is a great choice if you want to go kayaking with a friend, your partner or your kids. Since this tandem kayak has a weight capacity ranging from 375 to 425lbs, it can easily and comfortably fit one big and tall person, two plus-sized people or 2 average weight people with a child.
Personally, I think this kayak is amazing for couples with a child who love casual paddle adventures. The kayak is 12 feet long, 34 inches wide, and it has 3 seating positions, depending on whether you are paddling alone, with someone, or with a child. The kayak is sturdy and smooth, and I found it rather easy to paddle and navigate with my daughter up front.

How Much Weight Can a Kayak Hold?
Kayak weight limits mostly depend on the type of kayak. For example, recreation, ocean, and touring kayaks have a limit between 200 and 450 pounds. Fishing kayaks typically carry more gear, meaning they must have a higher weight limit – from 400lbs, 500lbs, and even 700lbs. Tandem kayaks have a weight capacity that goes from 500lbs to 700lbs and more.
