Sit in and paddle around the lake or play a bit in the surf.

The Wilderness Systems Tarpon 100 Sit-On-Top Kayak goes along whether you're paddling along the shore to look at wildlife, tracking across mirrored lakes, or having a bit of fun in small surf. Front, back, and side grab handles make it easy to tote this boat from the car to the water or over rocky portages, especially when you can bribe your buddy to help schlep. Hop aboard the luxurious seating, grab your tackle or an extra 6-pack (or both), and paddle anywhere your arms will take you.

The multi-chined hull provides initial and secondary stability for beginners, and seasoned riders will relish undiluted agility of this spunky kayak. The soft Phase 3 AirPro seating system uses leg-lifters, a scalloped seat, and enhanced airflow to make all-day paddling sweet on your seat (and back). Further customize the fit using the Keepers foot brace.

Labor Day on the lake or a week-long fishing trip in Alaska—the Tarpon opens wide to swallow your gear. Bow and midship stay protected from the spray with Orbix hatch covers. Keep your sunscreen and extra bag of snacks within reach in the mid-ship gear storage bags. Put your dry bags in the cavernous stern tankwell, knowing the adjustable bungee system will keep them in place if you bite it on a bit of rough water—or the fish gets the better of you.

This model does not come with rod holders, but it is equipped with the SlideTrax system, which is compatible with rod holders that can be purchased separately and mounted using the SlideTrax Mounting Plate made by Harmony. (Harmony makes a combo Mounting Plate/Rod Holder that's pretty nifty as well-- see link below)

If you have any other questions, feel free to hit me up directly! My number is 800.409.4502, ext 4456.
