Find the right kayak for your lifestyle. Whether it's spending time with the family, relaxing alone, going on the adventure of a lifetime, or simply adding some excitement to your exercise routine, you'll find the right fit in a Perception.


Fun on the water for everyone – it's what our recreation kayaks are all about. But what makes a Perception different is that we want kayaking to be part of your active lifestyle, which doesn't happen in a slow, bulky boat. Our recreational kayaks offer speed, control, and comfort you'd never expect, with the manageability and stability you do. Once you've paddled one out on the lake, you'll wish next weekend was here already.


Open up even more of the exciting possibilities kayaking has to offer by developing your skills and expanding your environments in a Perception touring kayak. These kayaks are designed for more performance, a tighter fit, and more capacity than recreational kayaks, but offer predictable handling so beginners or experts can venture on longer excursions on more types of water.

Whether it's a multi-day adventure, or the technical handling needed for rough conditions, our expedition kayaks are engineered for performance on all types of water. Efficient designs offer increased speed, maneuverability, and gear storage, while ultra-comfortable outfitting gives an athletic grip without the punishment, so nothing's holding you back.
