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.

We ordered this double kayak and it arrived in perfect condition in record time....about 8 days after I ordered it. We have been out several times and it was much lighter and easier to handle than our older tandem and it tracks much better. Also it was packed very well and the delivery video was so helpful in getting it unpacked. Nice product...the sale handled so well over the phone and our shipping and handling was free! Would definitely use this company again.
I love my new tandem kayak. Went on a solo test run and kayak was stable and easy to maneuver. Took front seat out and loaded in my 75 lb dog and it was as stable as could be. Delivery was free and arrived quickly to my door. Only thing I wish was different is that the kayak does have a plug. But, I bought the kit from Austin and will do that next. Overall, very pleased!
Old Town Twin Heron: Great stability. Lots of space. We can even slip my 4yo child up front and have 2 adults in the seats. It's HEAVY to get up on the kayak J hooks on top of my Subaru Tribeca; definitely a 2 person job and I use a step ladder for help with height. I also wish it had a drain hole. Super excited about it overall though, and it's a great value for the leisurely way that I plan to use it with friends and my kiddo.
My wife and I are very happy with our Old Town Twin Heron tandem kayak. We wanted a tandem kayak that we could paddle together, but one that could also be paddled solo. We were afraid that, being a tandem kayak, the Twin Heron would be slow and unresponsive. To our relief, the Twin Heron is relatively fast and responsive. Just what we wanted.
