I have decent quality Nikon bins but they're neither compact nor waterproof, qualities I think would be essential for sea kayaking. I have read some favorable reviews for the Leupold Yosemite 6x30 and the more compact Rogue 8x25. Both are waterproof/fogproof with at least a 15mm eye relief. The Yosemite focuses down to 10 feet but isn't really compact and I don't know if 6x will be adequate. They're both bargain priced at less than $100. Perhaps a monocular would be a better choice for paddling.
