"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.

"HiLife" SUP Paddle Board

OK, so paddle boarding looks pretty cool right? Ever try standing on one? HiLife is MUCH more stable than one that looks like a surf board.
What if you want to sit down and relax? HiLife has a great seat and backrest, there's even a cooler underneath!
Swim decks make exit and re-entry for kids and pets a breeze, and the track pads on the bow, midship and stern help you keep your footing while paddling.
A multipurpose track runs from bow to seat and acts as a slide track to mount your recreation and fishing accessories. The multipurpose track also doubles as a carry handle for easy transport.
We recommend you buy a HiLife with a convertable paddle; good for standing up or sitting down.
HiLife is very affordable, so there's nothing keeping you from your active lifestyle.
This model is made in the USA by Perception kayaks.
Also available in an Angler model.
Available Colors; Blue or Lime

Length: 11'     Width: 34"     Weight: 53 lbs.     Max Load: 280 lbs.


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.

Perception Swiftwater 10.5 EXP

Offering performance and stability, all in one compact, user-friendly design, the Swiftwater 10.5 crossover kayak is ideal for many conditions from very calm waters up to Class II rapids.
A great choice for a beginner or intermediate paddler who wants a versatile kayak that also easy to load and transport.
Swiftwater has a well thought out cockpit area to promote proper paddling techniques for a range of paddler sizes. Through our Try-Before-You-Buy program our customers tell us the Swiftwater is very stable and has a better blend of both tracking and maneuverability than other 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.
Notice the rocker profile, this provides easy turning within a compact area. Unlike many BOX STORE kayaks (which are molded too inexpensively to have a proper cockpit lip); the Swiftwater may be fitted with an optional cockpit cover or spray skirt. A good sprayskirt is crucial if you intend to run rapids.
This model is made in USA by Perception Kayaks.
Includes a nice padded seat, adjustable padded backrest, rear hatch, sealed bulkhead for safety (EXP model only), adjustable footbraces, deck rigging and knee pads.

Swiftwater specs: Length: 10' 6"     Width 30"     Weight: 43 lbs.     Max Load: 300 lbs.

Acadia 11.5 EXP

Shown above is the Acadia 11.5 EXP in Sunset color. Also available in our special color which is a mix of Blue and Lime.
The Acadia is likely Perception's most famous model of all time.
This is because the Acadia has an uncommon amount of glide, tracking, stability and room in the cockpit when compared to bagain outlet 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 perfectly sized cockpit opening providing plenty of room to maneuver and access your gear without being overwhelming.
Compared to those box store kayaks Acadia 11.5 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.
This model is made in the USA by Perception kayaks.

Kayak Karrier Handles

The Streak 9.5gtx is a great pick for a basic, do it all kayak. The wide, flat bottom shape provides plenty of stability.

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.

This is the Swifty deluxe 9.5 it's more stable, better tracking and enough room for an adult paddler when compared to so many of those other box store kayaks.
It has a large cockpit opening providing plenty of room to maneuver and access your gear.
