Product Overview

PERCEPTION Tribe 13.5 Tandem Sit-On-Top Kayak

The best-selling sit-on-top just got better … way better! Perception kept everything that made the Tribe one of the most dependable and versatile kayaks of all time and added some major modern improvements.

Thanks to a new high-back frame seatback, the Tribes are now even more comfortable with increased support and cushioning. Plus, this new seatback takes relaxation to the next level offering infinitely adjustable recline positions, creating the ultimate lounge to kick back, relax and catch some rays while floating about. Lightweight and fully stackable, with a plethora of handles, getting the Tribe to the water is a total breeze.

Affordable, easy-going, and great looking, the Tribe performs terrifically in light surf, lazy rivers and flat water. Round up your tribe and have fun on the water in the all-new Perception Tribe.


  • NEW adjustable framed seatbacks - for superior support and infinite recline positions with comfortable padded seat bottoms to keep you on the water longer. And molded footrests to accommodate paddlers of multiple sizes
  • Large open storage areas in front and rear with bungee lashing to secure your gear
  • Scupper holes provide drainage while still allowing your boat to remain buoyant - scupper plugs (sold separately) can be added if desired and are often used in cooler months to extend your paddling season
  • 2 solo mount recesses - enable you to easily add mounts & accessory holders (sold separately) without drilling
  • Rigid one-piece side carry handles and front and rear toggle handles for easy transport and lockable storage
