Perception Kayaks Carolina 12.0 Kayak - The Carolinas are steeped in the tradition that made them the most popular day touring kayaks in the world. The v-shaped hull with soft chines improves stability and performance, making them easier to paddle for novice paddlers. The large cockpit allows for easy entry and exit. Inside, the padded backrest can be adjusted up, down, fore, and aft to find the perfect seating angle for you. Adjustable foot pegs allow you to further perfect the fit. Padding on the cockpit rim gives your knees a comfortable place to rest. Bow and stern deck rigging makes it easy to secure smaller items above-deck, and watertight hatches with bulkheads keep larger gear protected. Note: Each multicolor boat is unique, and color patterns vary boat to boat.

Optional Rudder kit - A kayak rudder can aid your steering in high winds or currents. If you are paddling in ever-changing weather conditions, consider adding a rudder to your kayak. This kit is easy to install, and comes with everything you’ll need. Simply choose the ‘+ Rudder Kit’ in the selection menu. Note – Installation is required.

Why two different sizes? The Carolina 12.0 has a comfortable roomy cockpit and fits just about anyone. It is stable and easy to turn. The Carolina 14.0 is just as comfortable but has faster hull speed for those wanting to go farther! Questions about which size is right for you? Talk to an Outdoorplay paddling specialist at 800.994.4327, Mon-Fri from 7am to 5pm Pacific time.

    Shopping Info

    I purchased the Carolina 12 because I was looking for a boat that had storage for short trips, was short enough for easy transport, had a roomy cockpit and was reasonably fast. I paddled every 12' boat I could find (10-15 different models) and the Carolina 12 was the only boat that I felt achieved the compromises I wanted. Basically, every other boat that was faster than my Prodigy 10 had such a tiny cockpit that my enjoyment of my time on the water would have been limited. I like to be able to have free access to cooler and camera, wiggle around, and hop in and out to swim and explore. I'd actually like this cockpit to be a bit larger, but I can live with it in return for the greater speed and fore and aft bulkheads. I've paddled 8-10 miles each of the last four days in conditions varying from calm to 2' powerboat wakes to 15 mph wind, and must say it has met my expectations well. I like the adjustability of the seat, but I'm not sure I've found the right spot and actually think the fixed Prodigy seat might have been more comfortable, but I'm sure a pad or something will resolve this problem if I can't find the right adjustment. If you are looking for a rec boat that can easily handle short trips, then I think the Carolina 12 is the best choice!

    I was looking for a boat that would be capable enough for coastal sea kayaking yet small enough for use on rivers and with enough dry storage for overnight camping. The Carolina 12 fit the bill perfectly. The boat was reworked for 2007, and now has front and rear hatches and more then adequate tie downs. The seat was also completely changed. The Carolina 12 now sports the “Zone multi adjust outfitting system.” This means, that you get a padded seat with an adjustable backrest. The backrest is adjustable from a ratchet system on the side. The boat handles very well. It is stable yet quick. I have taken this boat from Esker Point in Connecticut to Fisher’s Island, NY and crossed the nearly two miles of open sound with ease. It even handled the boat wakes well. I have also used it to kayak camp overnight in the Boston Harbor, NP. The storage compartments are large enough for a overnight if you travel light. I find the cockpit very comfortable. I chose this boat partly because of the open cockpit. The opening is not as large as on a recreational boat but big enough to give you room to move around. Overall I am very pleased with this boat and would recommend it to people of all abilities.
