"Welcome to the BIGGEST - LITTLE canoe and kayak shop in the world"
shipping & return policy
Perception Kayaks
Box Stores may try to match our prices but they can't match our service.
"Don't be fooled! Make believe kayak brands from the Big Box Store are NO Bargain... The Box store makes up a brand name and has the kayak made in China or Thailand.
The container of kayaks from China has no parts in it. The Box store certainly stocks no parts.
When your seat and footbrace breaks or you lose the hatch no replacements are available.
Shop at the box stores and you'll find you're on your own both before and after the sale. Hoping that you've made a good choice rather than knowing you've bought the best value for the priorities you have and the waters you want to explore.

Just like for the last 40 years, Oak Orchard has parts in stock for the brands we recommend and sell.
We can repair the kayak you bought from us and get you back on the water.
Just like for the last 40 years, we can phone our rep (a real live person) at Old Town, Perception, Wilderness Systems or Current Designs and get service and parts for you.

We get calls all the time from people trying to find parts for those "unique" box store kayaks, unfortunately parts are just not available, anywhere.
What will you do WHEN your seat, footbrace or backrest BREAKS ? You can't even get a cockpit cover or spray skirt to fit them.
We call them "white elephants"; cheap box store kayaks which turn out to be a costly mistake and provide a hobby of frustration rather than fun."

For 40 years Oak Orchard Canoe Kayak Experts has proven that you can see ALL the best brands in one place
PLUS... on-site warranty, on-site repairs, in stock parts AND... lessons, rentals, free try-before-you buy
AND... knowledgeable sales people that spend the time to help you buy the right kayak the first time.

Perception Prodigy XS

The new Prodigy XS is a welcome addition to the Prodigy family of kayaks. This modest sized, light-weight, recreational boat makes it the perfect choice for smaller paddlers seeking feature rich options at an affordable price.
With a focus on comfort, the Prodigy XS incorporates the Zone EXP back band with a Zone seat pad designed specifically for this boat. Other features include Zone Knee Pads for even more comfort and added control, and bow deck bungee to keep important items secure and close at hand.
Smaller sized paddlers will also appreciate the lowered deck for improved visibility and the compact size hull that isn't too wide to comfortably manage while paddling.

Length: 10' 0"     Width: 23"     Weight: 27 lbs

Perception Blast

Offering simplicity and stability, in a compact, user-friendly design, the Blast is ideal for many conditions from calm waters up to Class II rivers. Great choice for a beginner or intermediate paddler who wants a versatile kayak that is very stable but also easy to load and transport.
Blast also has the famous Perception groove channels in the bottom which keep it from denting easily like so many of those box store kayaks.
The Blast is a compact but wide and stable craft. Through our Try-Before-You-Buy program our customers tell us the Blast is more stable and better tracking than other small kayaks they've tried.
Check out the defined shape on the ends, this is why there is very good tracking compared to other compact kayaks.
Unlike many BOX STORE kayaks (which are molded too inexpensively to have a proper cockpit lip); the Blast may be fitted with an optional cockpit cover or spray skirt.
Our Blast is made in USA by Perception Kayaks and comes with a nice padded seat, adjustable footbraces and an adjustable padded backrest.

Sound 9.5

Shown above is the Sound 9.5 in our special camo color which is a mix of forest green, sand and black. The Sound is available in other colors by special order.
You may choose the standard or angler model.
The Sound has an uncommon amount of tracking, stability and room in the cockpit among 9.5 or 10 foot kayaks.
The unique "Stabilizer Hull" is designed to enhance tracking AND make this boat very stable, especially while getting in or out of the boat.
It has a large cockpit opening providing plenty of room to maneuver and access your gear. The Sound also has a molded-in tray in the cockpit to keep smaller items accessible.
Compared to those box store kayaks the Sound 9.5 has more depth, which means the top of the kayak is not as close to water level, making for a drier ride.
This is particularly important if you plan on putting an adult into a 9 or 10 foot kayak.
The perfect kayak for beginners to start a lifetime of memories.
The Sound is made in the USA by Perception kayaks.

We stock a Base model (shown) and an ANGLER version which includes a Scotty deck mount and fishing rod holder.

Swifty Deluxe 9.5


We stock a version with a molded-in Dashboard (shown left), a version with an open cockpit (shown center) and to the right is the open cockpit with the optional console.
The Wilderness Systems console may be added to the open cockpit Swifty, this includes a dry hatch and a cupholder and two trays.
This console is held on by a bungee cord under the cockpit rim, so it is very easy to put on the kayak or remove.

The Swifty has long been a box store favorite since it is one of the cheaper offerings from a reputable USA brand (not true for many other box store kayaks).
Note; that the original Swifty is no longer made. This is the new Swifty Deluxe 9.5 it's more stable, better tracking and it's much deeper, which means more room for an adult paddler.
It has a large cockpit opening providing plenty of room to maneuver and access your gear.
Compared to the original (and so many of those other box store kayaks) the Swifty Deluxe has more depth, which means the top of the kayak is not as close to water level, making for a drier ride.
