Explore our collection of sunglasses and eyeglasses for kayaking to find the best options for the type of kayaking you pursue. We include durable water- and fog-resistant frames to suit your needs, whether your passion takes you to the rapids, or to serene waters in a sit-on-top kayak.
When you shoot through the rapids in your boat, you need a pair of rugged shades that will stay put in case you roll. Choose sunglasses for whitewater kayaking with a water-repellent construction, rust-resistant hinges, and a tight-fitting head strap to help keep them in place with or without a helmet. The Maui Jim Waterman made our Best Sunglasses for Kayaking list, and fits all these criteria.
Yes! Many of our favorite frames for kayaking are Rx-ready, and we can easily fit them with prescription lenses tailored to your needs. We offer a complete selection of prescription-ready sunglasses, goggles, and glasses for your favorite water sport.
Brown or amber polarized lenses are best for kayaking: They provide optimal contrast and visual acuity in changing light conditions to help you see clearly under cloud or tree cover. Polarized lenses cut glare from reflective surfaces like water for improved visibility. When you choose a brown polarized lens for your kayaking sunglasses, you’ll enjoy the clearest optics on every adventure.
