Delivery Details

Kayaks and Canoes

All kayaks and canoes and any accessories ordered with them will be all delivered together, we deliver all of the kayaks and canoes in our vans which are out on delivery runs every week, we endeavour to get all kayaks and canoes delivered as fast as possible but this does take approx 1-3 weeks for all kayaks and canoes.

Backordered kayaks and canoes can take approx 1-3 weeks after the end of the backorder month to be delivered.

We contact all customers prior to delivery and deliver Monday-Friday, we can not accommodate customer asking for only specific day delivery or specific times but we will do our best to work with all customers in order there kayak or canoe is delivered as best day/time as possible.

As we deliver all the kayaks and canoes ourselves we know that they get there in the best possible condition that they can as we only deliver these nothing else and we have been delivering kayaks and canoes ourselves for over 10 years now.

On the odd occasion we use a trusted specialist courier to deliver where times are likely to fall out of our timescale but we would notify you if this is likely to happen.

Kayaks and Canoes to go out to Northern Ireland will be dropped off at a special courier for onward delivery.

Small Items – everything except kayaks and canoes

All small items will be despatched via Royal Mail or Parcelforce within 24hrs of ordering excluding weekends and bank holidays.

4 reviews for Palm Kaikoura PFD/Buoyancy Aid

  1. Dave


    Excellent touring buoyancy aid, all the features you need without anything unnecessary to get in the way. Fast service.

  2. Bllly TheFish

    Really well Made PFD

    After looking online at many reviews I opted for the Kaikoura PFD, It didn’t disappoint in that it obviously does what its supposed to do but also fits really well ands lots of nice features like pockets for radios, PLB’s and other essentials, also a water bladder pocket in the back and hand warmer pockets. Good adjustability in the webbing for fitment, price is a little on the high side but all day comfort is paramount.

  3. Dug

    Bit on the pricey side, but does everything well.

    Have been using this for a month now and it works weel. Boyancy, fit, accessories, pockets etc, all good. The one thing I would wish for is a guide to beginners like me. Not sure how I would attach a quick-release knife and I don’t know which straps to use for attaching a rescue line etc. To be clear this isn’t a criticism as the PFD is intended for users who know what they need. All round good product:-)

  4. John Roelich (verified owner)

    The Kaikora ticked all of the boxes for a replacement PFD. Quality of the product is first class and it fits really well. NE Kayaks service is excellent and the price of the PFD was the best on the market. I really like dealing with NE Kayaks, their product range is brilliant and their service is absolutely first class
