A long-haul boat that cruises smoothly.

Storage, comfort, and speed over long-haul tours are the name of the game for the Perception Essence 16.5 Kayak which was built for smaller expedition paddlers. Grab your map and plan an extended trip over coastal waters with your gear stashed safely away inside the three sealed hatches. A height-adjustable drop skeg provides additional control over your boat tracking and the slightly rockered bow rides over choppy ocean conditions. Slide into supremely-fitted EXP seating and float out to a new adventure.
