The Old Town Twin Heron tandem kayak is a truly unique tandem kayak. Featuring the innovative Auto Trim Hull, the Twin Heron is a tandem that performs well when paddled solo. The Auto Trim Hull is designed to prevent the bow from popping up when someone is seated solo in the stern seat. And, if that's not enough, you can completely remove the front seat making it perfect for your dog to ride along or easy access to your hunting or fishing gear. The Twin Heron is outfitted with adjustable Comfort Flex Seat, thigh braces and adjustable foot braces. The Twin Heron is a great option for the outdoors family looking for a versatile craft.

I have two medium sized dogs and have been trying to find a Kayak were I can take one or both of them. Single person kayak's do not have enough room even for one (at least not comfortably. This kayak has been perfect - I removed the front seat, put in an outdoor mat so the dogs don't slip, and have plenty of room for myself, two dogs, and can actually fit in another small person. Kayak works well solo - unlike my two person canoe, and is light enough to move around by myself. Service and delivery from store was great - took 3 days to receive after I ordered it, perfect condition, shipping included.
Great kayaks. I bought two of these for the family. Seem very stable, however we haven't yet tried to dump them since the water is still cold, but they dont seem very tippy even with sudden moves or large wakes from motor boats. The only thing I didn't like is the cockpit trim is only pushed on and comes off easily. Mfg suggested applying Lexel to them to keep them on. No drain holes in these so you do have to sponge them out. Easy to maneuver. I suggest a kayak cart to haul them any long distance due to them being about 60lbs. Lots of room for storage under bow and stern, however there are no access hatches to make it easy to get to items. Lots of leg room front and back. If you want to daytrip kayak in pairs, these seem to work great. ACK was great at answering my questions and shipping was fast. I gave it a 4 star rating due to the cockpit trim issue and no storage access but otherwise great kayaks.
