Old Town created the Heron 11XT Kayak for novice and recreational paddlers who want a versatile, everyday closed-cockpit kayak with a little extra storage space and comfort. An aggressive keel shape offers precise tracking at the stern, and the hull flares out around the cockpit for stability in calm or rough water. Slide inside the roomy cockpit and slip into quiet coves for a little fishing or just enjoy a relaxing day on the water with friends.
