Collection: Perception

For more than 30 years, Perception has introduced more people to paddling than probably any other kayak maker. In fact, we pioneered the plastic kayak, which began an explosion in the sport beyond what we ever would have dreamed then.

<p>And just like us, those that have known us all those years love the sport of paddling in its purest and most simple form. Then there are those just getting to know us. We're all trying to balance today's strains on personal time, family time, and work. At Perception, we believe now's the time to start thinking about how you or your family is going to fill those priceless pages of your photo album.

<p>Almost anyone that paddles knows the Perception name and its storied history. We're excited to move into the future with even more innovation and the reliable quality that everyone has come to expect. Now, more than ever, it's time for you to discover (or rediscover) the concept that has kept us popular all these years. Our kayaks somehow offer the greatest adventures you'll experience, yet bring the simplicity to life we all desire so much.

<p>You'll be amazed at how simplicity can make things so interesting.
