Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Perception Tribe 13. 5 Sit-On-Top Kayak has enough space for three, so Mom, Dad, and Junior (or Fluffy) can paddle out to the island together for an afternoon of Robinson Crusoe-ing. The wide, stable hull allows the Tribe to perform in everything from ocean surf to meandering rivers, while the 13. 5-foot length adds plenty of speed and directional precision, and the self-bailing scupper tubes keep the deck free of water. Both the bow and stern seats are foldable, adjustable, and padded for comfort and paddling power, while the molded-in middle seat gives your little one a snug place to hunker down (no guarantees that she'll stay there, though). Perception hooked the Tribe up with plenty of thoughtful details, too, starting with the molded-in bow and stern tank wells, which come complete with bungees to strap down your gear for river expeditions and shoreline cruises. A skid plate adds durability to the keel, and the combination of molded and attached carry handles make moving and loading the Tribe a breeze. It's stackable, too, so you can easily keep your boats out the way while you're waiting for the snow to melt and the water to warm back up.


This versatile tandem sit-on-top features a 3-seat configuration for up to 2 adults and a small child or pet. It's a great way for the family to explore lakes, ponds and slow-moving rivers.
