Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great kayak for beginners I have never been in a kayak in my life, but I have always wanted one. My brother and I both decided to purchase one about a week ago. I chose the Perception Sport Swifty Deluxe 9.5 Kayak and he chose the Pelican Trailblazer. I went with the Swifty mainly because of the color choice, but this boat turned out to be much more than just pretty lol. We took them to the lake and tried them out the day we got them. The Swifty made me feel right at home on the water. Its design allows you to move basically however you want but the kayak remains stable. I tried my brother's Trailblazer out as well and I prefer the Swifty by a land slide. It is a little bit slower and takes more to get it moving, but it is super stable, which I love. I'd recommend this kayak to anyone. Its definitely one of the best things I've bought in a while, April 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome for a big guy I'm a pretty big dude 6 foot 285 and had no trouble using this kayak. it is perfect for lake/pond fishing. Wouldnt take it in the ocean without a skirt. But if your a semi-athletic bigger guy you will have no problems in this kayak.( Been out about 10-12 times) March 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Fun!! My husband and I bought our kayaks last summer. I purchased a sport swifty in tie-dye blue/green. We kayak on a 6,750 surface acre reservoir in Kansas, roughly 3-4 times a week. We average 5+ miles a trip, and I love my kayak. Its light enough I can carry it to and from the water, yet sturdy and rugged enough to take on the waves. Can't wait for spring/summer. I am 5'6" and weight 180 lbs. March 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect for Her I bought this kayak for my wife for fishing on lakes in the Sierras. She doesn't want to do the float tube thing anymore. We took it out for a trial run and she loved it. The kayak was easy for her to paddle and it tracked well. The packaging was good and shipping was relatively fast. I did note a couple of blemishes on the hull that looked like they originated at the factory and not as a result of shipping. Overall the quality of the kayak is good, and I would say it's a great value whether you use it to fish or not. Also, it fits well on my wife's Honda CR-V using a Yakima Jaylow on the factory rack. I'm happy with the purchase and my wife is delighted that she will stay warm and dry on our next trip to the Sierras. December 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this thing I bought this kayak this summer. Ive taken it out a few times and love it. Its very comfortable to sit in and easy to manuver. Im very happy with this purchase. November 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Greatest Kayak The Best Kayak I bought a Perception Sport Swifty 3 1/2 years ago after comparing it to many others in the store that day and I absolutely love it. It handles great, tracks real good, it's very stable, and no problem with speed. I live on an 84 acre lake and kayak 3 to 4 times a week for about 2 hours at a time. I recommended this kayak to 12 of my neighbors. After they tried mine, they fell in love with it and they all purchased their own. Lakehouse October 20, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by NOT SO SWIFTY! I just bought this kayak. My husband bought a fusion brand one. We went out this past weekend and I was soooo disappointed. I had to work ten times harder than my husband because the kayak would not go straight! We were in very calm water and I had such a hard time. It was constantly going to one side or the other. I loved this kayak at first. The seat is extremely comfortable. It is very spacious inside. I loved the handles for carrying it as opposed to other kind that can break. But there is no point in getting this kayak if you plan on kayaking. It says there is a stable hull design but compared to my husbands it is definately not stable. September 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Kayak for the price! We took our Swifty out for the first time yesterday. It was a nice ride for the price. It tracked well but was a little slow to turn due to the width. No dry well so gear would get wet when stored in the bottom of the kayak. Overall great Kayak for the price. August 28, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not So Swifty I purchased the Swifty 9.5 in June and have used it about 10 times. I like the shorter length as it can fit OK in my PU bed. The cockpit access is large for easy in & out. The seat is fairly comfortable. However, I have found that it tracks fairly poor and is very difficult and tiring. At times it feels like this thing is dragging an anchor. I suspect this unit was fat-sized to provide a 325 lb max limit by making it much wider than other models.. I am 6' and weigh 200 lbs and just figured the higher weight rating meant a better kayak. I used it for 1 hr and 20 minutes on my last paddle and I was whipped (and I'm in decent shape). I compared with someone using a rental sit-on kayak and theirs tracked thru the water much easier (but didn't like the flimsy seat). I also have the same situation someone else posted..... as soon as you stop paddling the dang boat rotates 180 degrees. This is bizarre as it doesn't matter which way the wind is blowing or direction you are going on a calm lake. Very strange and annoying. I also tested this against the rented sit on top unit and that boat didn't rotate one bit when paddling stopped. I plan to buy a second kayak for my wife and will not consider another Swifty. I told my wife she can have this one and she said heck no cause she noticed the same problems the few times she went out. I only paid $299 plus used a $15 coupon so I don't have much invested. I'll probably end up selling this one on Craigslist next spring and getting one that tracks better for the recreational user I want one where I can enjoy up to 2 hours of paddling instead of feeling I'm dragging a dropped anchor. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Deal I am a 14 year old seasoned kayaker, and I got this boat for a great price. It was a very Stable ride. It moves well over rapids, has a roomy cockpit, and the molded dash was helpful. The dry storage kept all of my stuff dry. The paddle holder was amazing if you were porting. My first kayak had NOTHING, but a seat and makeshift cup holder but this had everything I needed and it weighs very little. I am 103 pounds and 5'1" and and this was the best kayak I have ever used.
