The Perception Cove 14.5 tandem kayak’s versatile 14-foot-6 design offers exceptional stability and performance that makes paddling fun for the entire family. The extra-roomy sit-in design with padding along the edge is easy to get in and out of and gives you the freedom to relax on the water. Add a sealed dry storage compartment and incredibly comfortable seats and the Cove is ready to share the experience as you explore flat-water rivers, lakes, ponds, and flat water coastal bays.
The Cove focuses on comfort with a spacious sit-in design that’s easy to get in and out of, even for first-time paddlers. The ergonomic seat offers performance you can feel with thicker padding than comparable models, and a vertically adjustable backrest for fine-tuned support. Your legs will be protected thanks to the cockpit’s padded perimeter. Easily adjustable footrests customize fit for paddlers of all sizes.
Stability & Performance
Cutting-edge design makes the Cove more stable and easier to paddle than typical two-person kayaks. This makes it perfect for introducing new people to kayaking. Experienced paddlers will appreciate its straight-tracking performance and surprisingly quick-turning abilities. A movable front seat provides space for a small pet, and also makes the Cove fully capable and fun for solo excursions.
Features & Safety
The Cove is engineered and tested to be among the safest kayaks available with built-in buoyancy and stability that lets you relax on the water. Equipped with everything you need, it includes a dry storage zone behind the rear seat, as well as bungee cord lashes in the front and back to keep essentials handy. Comfort carry handles and lightweight design make it easier to carry than comparable two-person kayaks.
Like all Perception kayaks, the Cove is designed for maximum durability and optimized weight. This is the result of its high-density polyethylene and one-piece roto-molded construction that provides exceptional UV, impact, and abrasion-resistance. The easily replaceable skid plate adds protection when dragging your gear-loaded kayak to the water. Ocean and saltwater-optimized hardware and finishes allow you to take your Cove anywhere you please for years to come.
