Shipping & Delivery Information

This specific kayak model will ship directly from Wilderness Systems/Perception within 24-48 hours. While we cannot guarantee this option to be damage-free, you will receive your kayak in 2-5 days. We will wrap your kayak in extra cardboard, put extra "fragile" and "no forklift" stickers on it, and do everything in our power to make sure it arrives safely.

You will be required to fully inspect your kayak PRIOR to signing the delivery report. Major damage to the hull, such as a structural crack or hole, will qualify for a replacement as long as the kayak is REFUSED by the consignee. In this case, reach out to sales@ecofishingshop.com and we will begin the claim process. You will be shipped a new kayak as soon as possible, depending on availability.

2023 Perception Carolina 12.0

The most versatile sit-inside touring kayak.

The Perception Carolina series of sit-inside touring kayaks are for beginner to intermediate paddlers who value comfort and stability in a boat that can easily explore all day on a wide range of waterways. The Carolina 12.0 kayak’s category-leading comfort and versatility makes it the best value in touring kayaks. The incredible stability is perfect for new paddlers, while the experienced will appreciate its speed and agility.

The lighter weight of this 12-foot design makes it easy to carry and more maneuverable as you explore quiet coastal and inland waterways. Full days and overnight excursions are a pleasure thanks to spacious dry storage and the deluxe comfort of a six-point adjustable seat. The Carolina can also be upgraded with a rudder (sold separately) for increased maneuverability and tracking if desired.

Proudly designed, molded and hand-assembled in the USA, the Carolina 12.0 kayak is backed by a 5-Year Warranty.

*Colors may vary slightly from those shown as each kayak that we produce is unique. Variations in color are not covered by warranty. Additionally, bungee cord colors and other fittings are periodically updated and may vary from what is pictured. You can purchase bungee cords (sold separately) in a variety of colors if you wish to customize the look of your boat.
