Description

One kayak size doesn't fit all. Not to worry, Perception gives you choices with the Acadia Series Kayaks.

Perception designed the Acadia Series Kayaks with a wide, stable hull that feels ultra-solid for a paddle across the lake or through the harbor. While the Acadia Kayak is stable, it also tracks well, so you're not stuck feeling like you're steering a barge.

  • The 11.5-foot and 13-foot Acadia kayaks include 4150cu inches of dry storage under a water-tight hatch to hold lunch and extra layers
  • The 10-foot Acadia kayak maneuvers quickly and fits easily on top of vehicles
  • Zone seating uses an adjustable backrest and knee and thigh padding design to accommodate a wide range of paddlers
  • Slidelock foot braces offer adjustable support so you can give your restless legs something to do
  • Soft touch handles make carrying, loading, and unloading this boat easy
  • Bow deck rigging holds last-minute items
  • Stern hatch with dual density cover keeps your lunch sandwiches dry

I bought a used Perception Acadia 2 years ago and I love it. I do recreational kayaking in the Upper Cumberland and enjoy most creeping up the creeks as a far as I can - which is usually just a few inches. When I got it the bottom hull of the cockpit was sunk in. The seller told me that was normal and would happen on the first outing with a new one. Is this correct?

Hey Kathleen,

Definitely not recommended...Stick with a one seater if it's just going to be you.

Responded on

It depends on the tandem. My Old Town Loon 160T is fine as a one person as long as you adjust the seat and keep an extra ballast weight in the front. It's great for hauling a lot of gear.

i"m 6'5...kinda on the larger side. I have 10 lbs to lose but even then i'm running like 220...I live on the detroit river and love going out but would like to take a more active roll in my water fun, yet most boats...well i don't seem to fit in them. My legs hit the end, i'm too big, generally i don't fit. I'm looking to play in the water more and don't want to be flipped by the freighters and i'd like not to sink any suggestions for great...larger kayaks??

Responded on

i...fortunately or unforunately look like a full back..not exactly kayak material. I'm great with water, i'm a master diver, just need something i can fit in

Responded on

This is a little late for an answer, but check out the Wavewalk W500 that is a new concept based on a co-jointed dual-hull system. It also has a generously sizeable cockpit and its REALLY STABLE. The specs put the max. loading at 360 lbs.
Check this :

Retails at $996 and upwards for variants of the model.

What is the difference between the Acadia 11.5 and the Tribute 12... Novice kayaker - will I find the Tribute to be 'tippier' ?

Responded on

Both are considered very stable and geared toward the recreational/novice paddler on flat water. Given the width and legth, both of these kayaks should handle very similar - but the Tribute will be slightly faster. The Tribute is also much lighter and easier to load on a vehicle or haul to the water.

Write your question here...What options for spray skirt are there for the 11.5 foot Acadia, both in Perception products and other manufacturers? I want to avoid the lap full of water that I get with the apparently lower quality spray skirt I have.

Flat water use ie Murray River, I'd like to know which Acadia Perception Kayak would best suit him?

Responded on

Either the 11.5ft or the 13ft model would support his weight (about 198 pounds) and then some. They are also a bit wider, which lends the feeling of stability. As a beginner, it is best to go try out a few rental boats until he finds one that he is really comfortable with, and find a boat that matches the measurements of that boat within your price range.

Responded on

Dependent on where you are in the Puget Sound area, there are a number of good kayaking shops available to customize your boat. In the South Sound, I'd check with Alpine Experience, Olympic Outfitters, or South Sound Kayak. In the Seattle area, you have the REI flagship store, Kayak Pro Shop, or Northwest Outdoor Center. If you live further north, LFS in Bellingham, or Sterling's (also in Bellingham) would be your best resources. If you are on the west side of the sound, try Sport Townsend or PT Outdoors in Port Townsend.

Would the Perception Acadia be able to handle class II with a fairly new kayaker?

Best Answer Responded on

I'd look at getting a sit on top for class two. Water wieghts about 7lbs per gallon. The Acadia has no bulkhead or hatch, so youll want to have float bags in the boat for moving water, otherwise you could be swiming with a pretty heavy sea anchor! Or look at the boats that have a bulkhead dry compartment. These boats only fill the cockpit with water but the bulkhead compartment stays airtight and floats up high in the water.
