The ultimate kayak for women.

The Perception Tribute 12.0 kayak’s stable, yet playful, 12-foot design is perfect for women and smaller paddlers of any ability. The sit-in cockpit is easy to get in and out of and protects you from the elements. The longer length remains maneuverable while adding speed and stability as you explore flat-water rivers, lakes, and ponds. Light and easy to carry, it’s equipped with spacious dry storage and the deluxe comfort of a six-way adjustable seat with padded adjustable leg support.


The Tribute offers women and smaller paddlers comfort unlike any other kayak. The spacious sit-in cockpit is easy to get in and out of, and the thickly padded premium seat with contoured backrest offers industry-leading adjustability; the seat bottom tilts up or down, while the seatback tilts forward or backward and can be raised or lowered—all by simply pulling or releasing the straps. Footrests and seat can be quickly adjusted while seated to find the position that fits you best.

Stability & Performance

The Tribute makes paddling fun with an exceptionally stable sit-in design that’s perfect for beginners to intermediates. Its fast and maneuverable hull is effortless to paddle and steer for performance you can feel as your skills progress. The Tribute 10.0 offers increased maneuverability while the larger 12.0 model maintains an agile feel while adding speed, storage, and even greater stability.

Features & Safety

The Tribute is engineered and tested to be among the safest kayaks available with built-in buoyancy and stability that lets you relax on the water. Spacious rear dry storage protects a full day’s worth of gear, while versatile bungee cord lashes across the front and back keep essentials within reach. Reflective perimeter safety lines enhance visibility once the sun goes down and also make re-entering the boat easy in case of emergency.


Like all Perception kayaks, the Tribute is designed for maximum durability and optimized weight. This is the result of its high-density polyethylene and one-piece roto-molded construction that provides exceptional UV, impact, and abrasion-resistance. Ocean and saltwater-optimized hardware and finishes prevent corrosion for long-lasting performance.
