The new Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140 kayak delivers improved speed, better glide, and even more storage than its smaller counterparts. The new Phase 3 AirPro seating system adds comfort and easy adjustability. The hull and deck have been fine tuned to offer increased performance while still maintaining the stability to stand and cast from the flat floored seating area. This well rounded sit-on-top is capable of adapting to a variety of water conditions by combining small kayak maneuverability with large kayak speed.

New Phase 3 AirPro Seating System and adjustable footpegs offer a comfortable and customizable fit
SlideTrax accessory rail, bungee paddle holders, and molded mesh gear pockets
Two turn and lock 8 inch round hinged Orbix hatch covers for dry storage
Quicker than the smaller boats in the Tarpon family but yet still maneuverable

Review: After reading a lot of reviews and paddling 15 different kayaks on a demo day, I decided on the Tarpon 140. I also liked the tarpon 120 and probably would have been happy with that one too if I had purchased it. I use my new 140 on a large lake with relatively calm waters except for the wakes from boat traffic. This kayak is stable, tracks straight, and is relatively quick. The phase 3 seat is extremely comfortable for those long paddles. I'm 6'1, 200 lbs and relatively strong. You will need either a cart to wheel this kayak around or another person to help you get it to the water. It is heavy and difficult to handle by myself. But once on the water, it is terrific and I am glad I purchased it. ACK was great to work with they helped me select a paddle and pfd. Get a good paddle!

Review: Tarpon 140 with Rudder kit. Excellent kayak. The rudder makes a great difference. I use it on the St, Johns River. It is connected to the ocean, So it can get quite rough. This kayak goes straight. It handles quite well no matter how rough it gets.

Review: My husband and I are new to kayaking, and wanted kayaks that would be safe in reasonably calm ocean water, and also fun for flat water river trips. We also wanted to be able to take friends kayaking in the local lakes near us. We ordered 2 Tarpon140s with rudders, delivered to our home on Orcas Island off the coast of the state of Washington. The kayaks arrived with a week, and in perfect shape, and free shipping besides! Over the last month, we took our kayaks into both fresh and ocean water and couldn't have been happier with how they performed. We love how sensitive the rudder is and what a great option it is for a 14 ft. long kayak - allowing the kayak to turn on a dime. The kayaks are also extremely stable and the seat is comfortable for long periods. We haven't tried our kayaks in ocean water with strong currents, wind, etc., yet. The only drawback for us is the weight of the kayak, but my husband and I have a system for putting it on and off our car racks together, which has so far worked well (we are not very strong or young!) We have needed to carry a small step ladder with us for putting the kayaks on the car. Very happy with our purchase!
