The best of both worlds.
Blending the benefits of a canoe with the stability of a kayak, Jackson Kayak's Tripper 12 Kayak gives you the open-deck convenience of a canoe with the durability and performance of a kayak. Transport a small child or boat-loving dog in the deck, or just fill the cockpit with fishing tackle or everything you need for a full-day's paddle around the lake.
The padded Elite Seat offers a comfortable paddling experience and can be adjusted either high or low for when you need a better view of the water, or want to stay low for a more stable and secure feel when the water turns rough. True to form, Jackson Kayak equipped the Tripper 12 with all the bells and whistles necessary to have a good time out on the water by adding a removable splash cover, bungee deck rigging, and a sealed stern hatch where you can securely stow your lunch when you head out for a another long day on the lake.

- Q & A
I am looking to purchase the Jackson Daytripper 12 to take my dog out on the bay. My question is I weigh 185 and my dog is 100lbs. Max load on specs says 250 yet this kayak is recommended all day long for taking your dog. Has anyone used this kayak with a large dog that can chime in? Thanks, Rob
Hi Rob, This kayak can probably handle a little more than 250lbs, however performance will begin to diminish once you get up and over that payload capacity. You could go with something like the Hurricane Skimmer (link below) that has a payload capacity of 300lbs which would give you a little bit more wiggle room. http://www.backcountry.com/hurricane-skimmer-116-kayak-sit-on-top?skid=HCN000G-GN-ONESIZ&ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6c2l0IG9uIHRvcCBrYXlhazoxOjM6c2l0IG9uIHRvcCBrYXlhaw==.
