PERCEPTION Carolina 12.0 Day Touring Kayak

The most versatile sit-in touring kayak.

If you desire comfort, stability, and maneuverability in a boat that can navigate all waterways, the Perception Carolina series of sit-in touring kayaks are an excellent choice. The Carolina 12.0 is lightweight and stable, making it ideal for beginners, while experienced kayakers will appreciate its speed and agility. With ample dry storage and a six-point adjustable seat, you can spend whole days or even overnight excursions on the water. An optional rudder (sold separately) is also available for increased maneuverability and tracking.

Thick, ventilated padding with an adjustable seat back and leg lift option provides exceptional comfort. Plus, integrated thigh pads on the cockpit rim give you increased points of contact for maximum control so you can feel one with your kayak.

Bow & stern hatches with bulkheads

Front and rear dry storage with sealed covers for easy on/off access to your gear. Additionally, buoyancy is increased with bulkhead flotation foam in the bow and stern, providing extra flotation and safety while out on the water.

Adjustable footrests

The adjustable footrests offer complete support that can be adapted to fit paddlers, both big and small, with ease.
