New to the amazing world of kayaking, we did a copious amount of research before purchasing our first yaks. After closely considering speed, stability, versatility, and price, the choice became quite clear; Perception Sport's Pescador 12 is a winner.
Based on Wilderness System's 2008 model of the Tarpon 120, the Pescador hits all marks on what is considered to be a classic among quality SOT kayaks. It tracks well (faster than Ocean Kayak Caper and Big Game from our experience, but not as stable), boasts a comfortable seat, has plenty of storage, and is truly a beautiful boat. At $500, it's value is unparalleled.
We bought three. I'm 6' 250, my wife is 5'2" 160, and my sister is 5'10" 200. No issues. We were ducks to water in our Pescadors!
