The name of its game is Fun.

The all-terrain vehicle of the waterworld, the ocean-loving, river-adoring, sit-on-top Perception Tribe 11.5 Kayak loves variety as much as you do. It's beginner-friendly so everyone can get a taste of the action, with a wide, stable hull and rockered bow that handles waves and maneuvers easily on flats. Simple to paddle, carry, and store (it's stackable), this new member of the Tribe won't break the bank.

  • Crazy-durable polyethylene hull flexes to absorb impact, resists abrasion and cracking, and repairs easily if somehow you damage it
  • Stable and wide hull shape with front rocker is a top performer in rough surf but also maneuvers with ease while doing the lazy-river float
  • Ergonomic Harmony sit-on-top seat design positions feet level with body for efficient paddling and comfort
  • Molded-in footbraces provide simple and easy fit and control
  • Bow and stern tankwells with bungees store and secure all your gear in a balanced fashion
  • Stern skid plate protects against wear, tear, and abrasion
  • Self-bailing scupper tubes keep you above the water, not in it
  • Durable, molded-in soft-touch side and bow and stern handles give plenty of carrying options for comfortable transport
  • Easily stackable, up to four boats, allowing tidy storage

Awesome kayak!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I love this kayak! I've had it out on two different lakes and enjoyed every minute. I'm a complete kayaking beginner and wanted a sit on top. I'm not interested in any sort of extreme kayaking, just wanted to paddle around lakes with my friends. I have hip mobility issues and a traditional kayak would have been hard to get into. I'm also six feet tall and long legs often don't fit into things. Well, this is perfect, there is even room for my legs without have having rest my feet on the top. It's very sturdy. We put a small cooler on the back and I didn't even notice it. I think the only weird thing is no place to put my keys, most kayaks have a small well someplace. Also, I use a hullivator to transport and it, with the kayak upright flat. It would be nice if this had some sort of tie down access on the front so I could easily attach a forward strap, but only for added safety and security, it's not going anywhere on my hullivator. I bought the blue color and it's very pretty, more white than blue. I think I'll be enjoying this kayak for a long, long time.

How is the back support and can it be...

How is the back support and can it be adapted to fishing use?

Responded on

our back support is very comfortable and gives a lot of support. Also we are fixing ours to fish from and you can add a yak track to place a rod holder on them.

I have gotten this kayak out on the water only a few times, but it has exceeded my expectations! I am actually thinking about getting another for my fiance!

Great kayak

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great kayak for all levels and sizes of paddlers. We have two and love them. My kids use them regularly and we take them out into the mangrove trails weekly. We fish and snorkel off them. Easy to load/unload, almost impossible to tip (we have had many attempts but no success :) Just phenomenal - and a great price!

Does it come with the seat?
