The Perception Tribe series are great if you are a beginner or an intermediate paddler. These sit-on-top kayaks are versatile, super-stable, and very quick in the water. The Perception Tribe 13.5 tandem kayak is as the name suggests, more than 13 feet long, and designed for two individuals. This strong and durable kayak can support up to 500lbs.
This kayak is all about comfort. It has a very comfortable padded seat with an adjustable seat back. It also has molded knee and thigh areas, integrated footrests to fit users of different sizes and build, and my personal favorite, a center seat for your kids or pet!
The Perception Tribe has a generous storage area for bigger and smaller items, as well as a built-in drink holder, which is a nice touch. It is rather comfortable to carry with the bow and stern toggle handles.

Things to Consider When Buying a High Weight Capacity Kayak
What Kayak Has the Highest Weight Capacity?
Among the products we reviewed, the Sea Eagle 380x Inflatable Kayak with Pro Package has the highest weight capacity of 700 pounds. This makes it a great option if you are a big guy, if you want to go kayaking with a friend or simply need to bring a lot of gear.
How Much Weight Can a Kayak Hold?
Kayak weight limits mostly depend on the type of kayak. For example, recreation, ocean, and touring kayaks have a limit between 200 and 450 pounds. Fishing kayaks typically carry more gear, meaning they must have a higher weight limit – from 400lbs, 500lbs, and even 700lbs. Tandem kayaks have a weight capacity that goes from 500lbs to 700lbs and more.
