Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO MUCH SPACE I GOT THIS BECAUSE I WANTED MORE SPACE THAN MY 10 FT PELICAN SO I COULD TAKE MY LITTLE DOGS WITH ME ON THE LAKE TRIPS. ITS EVERYTHING I HOPED IT WOULD BE. IT DID TAKE ON SOME WATER AFTER ABOUT 7 MILES OF PADDLING AND THE PLUG SEEMED TO BE TIGHT ENOUGH. MAYBE ABOUT 1/2 GAL. IT TRACKS WELL AND I HAVE ONLY PADDLED SOLO. I DID ADD A NICE AFTER MARKET SEAT WHICH MADE IT MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE.. I SIT IN THE BACK AND PUT A BEACH TOWEL IN THE FRONT TO ACCOMMODATE MY 3 LITTLE DOGS. I AM 59 YEARS OLD, 5'9" A BIG GAL 200LBS.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kayak is ok for the price We bought this kayak to do family trips with our sons who are 10 and 7. My wife used it at first since it was prettier than the other one we have. Unfortunately, due to the length of the kayak she was unable to steer it very well even with my son paddling up front to help. After 30 minutes we switched kayaks. I didn't have quite the same problem but I did notice that it didn't track as well as the Pelican kayak that we have which is just a little shorter and wider. So for the price ($449) it's ok but probably better for a more experienced paddler than a novice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely satisfied Bought this for myself and 7 y.o. Took it to Buffalo River May 2016 for kayak camping. It was about level 2 status with one spot a little rougher. I was still a novice and the boat never flipped or got out of hand. My little one did a fantastic job and loved the trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for first time kayakers It's big. It's stable. It tracks well, and was surprisingly maneuverable. Plenty of room for two people, even with my 220 lbs in the seat. My teenaged daughter even took it out by herself with no trouble at all, and no one in my family had any kayaking experience. It's only downside is that it is a bit heavy (75lbs). The weight and overall size makes it hard for one person to handle on land. In buying a trolley for it, so I can move it from storage to water by myself without any strain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great family kayak We recently purchased this kayak and went on a family adventure with it - 2 adults and 2 children (5 and 6 years old). 3 people fit comfortably, our son (5) had to sit between mom's legs in the front - not too bad. The kayak seems to track fairly straight and we did not have any trouble with propulsion or navigation and this was the first kayak experience for any of us - Daddy (6', 210lbs) sat in the back seat and did 90% of the paddling with no issues. One thing to note is that this kayak is huuuge and fairly heavy/awkward - with that said, I am able to load/unload it by myself on top of the minivan to transport. I feel that due to the size of this kayak longer paddles are required. We bought the recommended lengths based on my wife and my heights, but they seemed too short. We are heading back to get longer paddles now. Definitely a good time and well worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Kayak for my family of 5 We bought this 2 months ago and have used it almost every weekend. Despite being a family of 5 with 3 small kids and me being 6' 4"/230, we all fit and are not yet near the 550 lb weight limit. The kayak is a tandem and has seating for 3, but you will have to get an additional seat for the third person. We are able to travel fairly long distances and the wide kayak is plenty stable, but note that the kayak is definitely not meant for speed. Be sure to grab longer paddles due to the 36" width of the kayak. Also note that the kayak is 78 lbs and 13.5' long. Transportation requires two people as does putting it up or taking it off of the top of a vehicle. Purchasing a scupper hole kayak cart was the best thing that I could have done and makes it easier for getting it to/from the water while my wife is wrangling the kids. There isn't any enclosed hatch for keeping things dry, so adding a dry bag is necessary unless you are willing to cut into the kayak. There are spaces just in front of every seat that a third-party 6 or 8" hatch can be installed. I have not done this yet. Note also that there are scupper holes, 10 of them, and water will enter the kayak unless you install scupper plugs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad we choose this kayak. My husband & I r beginning kayakers. We started out with 2 singles. He wanted to try a tandem over some small rapids in a local river. The vessel handled better than we imagined. We were very impressed how stable it was & how well it tracked. The space between riders is wonderful for hauling a medium ice chest. Make sure you buy a long paddle because this kayak sits a little higher off the water than most singles. A short paddle will cause you to have to reach deeper when stroking the water. If you can find a color darker get it because white is harder to keep clean. Other than that, we love this kayak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perception Rambler 135 Tandem I have several kayaks. Bought this one to take my wife out and to use as either a solo or tandem when children come and friends visit. This is an excellent hull, especially so at the price. It is roto-molded meaning there are no seams. The molded in side handles are a great touch and the bow and stern cord/handle grips are excellent. The hull tracks beautifully and is still pretty maneuverable especially if paddled solo from the rear. It is very stable. You could perhaps fall off but I doubt you could flip it and even if you did it would pop right back up. It is rated at 550 lbs carrying capacity. It is pretty heavy but one should expect this from a 13.5 ft tandem. The seats, however, are awful the backs have zero rigidity. Whenever I tried to lean back on them they collapsed - no matter how tight you torque the straps. The up-grade seat sold by Dick's is even worse. However, there are some good after-market seats which should be much better. I've ordered two on-line. I'll add some accessories to make it more serviceable as a fishing platform but customizing is part of the fun. On balance the quality of the hull and the price are such that I am still happy with the purchase.
