Perception Kayak started in (guess) a garage by engineer WIlliam Masters. The kayaking world owes a lot to this visionary man who experimented with rotationally molded kayaks, which is not the predominant method for most plastic boats made world-wide.
Darren the owner's first boat was a Perception Mirage, and for a lot of folks in their 50s or even 60s, it was their first boat too. A 13 foot-long whitewater boat today would be considered outrageous, but that was then.
Now Perception is one the largest brands of recreational kayaks in North America. Whitewater boats are now made by their sister company, Dagger Kayak. The quality you get for the price is a major reason our customers love Perception.
