The Perception Carolina 12 Kayak is the most versatile touring kayak ever created and is in a category of its own. This day or weekend tripper is a performance machine, with great acceleration and speed. The soft chined and V-shaped hull offers stable, smooth paddling. The Carolina 12.0 is the perfect size to easily load and offers dry storage for gear to make the most of its capabilities.
