When in Doubt, Contact Us About Availability
Because of the variability in transit days our business model creates unique challenges for booking software and makes it difficult to display a 100% accurate availability calendar. If the raft you want isn’t available for your desired dates, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly as it may be an error in our system. In many cases we can also ship the day after you book and override the default 6 day transit buffer. We highly recommend contacting us directly for groups of 4 or more as well.

The chart below shows our recommended size based on your sit length and the Gnarwhal’s fit profile. To determine your sit length, sit against a wall with your legs flat (wearing your preferred paddling shoes) and measure the distance from the wall to your heels. The Gnarwhal is sized for a whitewater fit, meaning that a typical paddler in the recommended size will be able to deeply bend their knees for maximum engagement in the thigh straps for the most secure high-performance fit. You can size up or down for a more performance or relaxed fit.
|Paddler Sit Length||39-43in | 99-109cm||42-46in | 107-117cm||45-50in | 114-127cm|
|Exterior Length||94in | 239cm||97in | 246cm||100in | 254cm|
|Exterior Width||38in | 97cm||38in | 97cm||38in | 97cm|
|Interior Length||43in | 109cm||46in | 117cm||49in | 124cm|
|Width at Hips||15in | 38cm||15in | 38cm||15in | 38cm|
|Max Capacity*||450lb | 204kg||450lb | 204kg||450lb | 204kg|
*The Gnarwhal fit does not correspond to the Alpacka Series. The Gnarwhal uses the paddler’s inseam as the sizing is based on the effective cockpit length. Proper fit is based on achieving sufficent knee bend between the backband and the foot brace to fully engage the thigh straps. If you are on the border of sizing, we recommend sizing down to the smaller size as the backband is easier to adjust to a longer inseam.

**Packed size is a reference measurement based on folding each lengthwise edge of the boat to the center and rolling from the bow. There are many other methods of rolling and folding the boats that will result in a different packed size that may be more or less efficient for packing depending on the situation.
