You don't have to decide between sightseeing and going on an adventure thanks to Klear Kanoo, an all-transparent kayak fit for two.

It was through some research that local couple, Silvia and Greg Giovannelli, found a kayak manufacturer that in fact does produce transparent kayaks. And so, the Giovannelli's decided to start up shop in Miramar Beach and become distributors of the unique vessel.

"We now have the exclusive ability to sell them to this area and beyond," Silvia said.

For right now, Silvia and her husband are focusing on sales in this area, offering free delivery to customers in Pensacola to Panama City.

As a Realtor for ResortQuest, Silvia can see rental units being equipped with their own Klear Kanoos in the future.

"It will be sort of a plus for the renters," she said.

The canoes — or Kanoos — are made out of the same polycarbonate material used in the production of bulletproof glass and fighter jet canopies. They're manufactured with an anodized aluminum internal frame system, dual flotation bladders and a three-quart water bailer. At 40 pounds, they're fairly easy to lug around, too.
