The South Wests Main Dealer for the Wilderness Systems range of Sit on Tops

These are the ultimate touring and fishing sit on kayaks. Wilderness Systems, long one of the worlds premier kayak manufacturers, leapt to the top of the design and quality stakes when they introduced the first range of Tarpon kayaks. We have been stocking them at our Cornwall Canoe and Kayak Shop since 2004 and they have been extremely popular.

The Tarpon hulls have a conventional kayak "boat" shape unlike many other well known brands. This is a proven design feature, it gives the best compromise of stability, speed and sea keeping which is especially important around the Cornish coastline.

The current Wilderness Systems sit on models were introduced in 2009 and were an immediate hit, modified again in 2014 to the current world beating spec.  The high level of specification with the integrated seat and backrest, orbix hatches, slidetrax accessory rails and other subtle features keep the Tarpons well ahead of other brands.
