About Perception

Perception shapes the future of kayaks, one great boat at a time. Passion has always been the driving force at Perception kayaks - a passion for paddling kayaks on every type of water; a passion for touring, fishing and whitewater kayak designs; and a passion for producing only exceptional products. In the '70s, Perception pioneered the first composite (plastic) kayaks. Since then, Perception's kayaks have led the industry with innovations like rotomolded hulls and Sonoma and Airalite technologies, which have opened the sport to a broader range of paddlers and fishermen. Although Perception kayaks began almost 30 years ago with just a few passionate kayak enthusiasts wanting to produce a better boat, today that same passion drives Perception kayaks to produce the best boats available and has made the brand one of the world's leading touring and whitewater kayak manufacturers.
