If you want an efficient boat that's ready for any adventure, from surf to ponds, and lakes to bays, it even makes a great angler, then the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 Kayak Deluxe Package is a must have. The Tarpon 120 is the most popular Tarpon for good reason. It's outfitted with the AirPro seating system, SlideTrax accessory rail, two mesh gear pockets, two hatches, and rear storage. The package includes a comfortable NRS Vista PFD in your choice of size and color, a durable Bending Branches Whisper Dream paddle, and a bungee paddle leash.
This is the perfect beginners package. It comes with everything you could possibly need to get you started. The paddle and the PFD aren't the best available, but they get the job done. By far the best deal anywhere. I have yet to take the yak on the water do to fall sneaking up on me so quickly. But I highly doubt I will have any complaints come spring.
overall - this is a good package. It included almost everything we could have wanted as beginner to intermediate kayakers. I am not overly pleased with the fit of my pfd - but I can live with it for now. And once we get grips added to the paddles, we'll be all set.
