Wilderness Systems Special Edition - Heroes On the Water - Tarpon 120 Sit-on-Top Kayak

Wilderness Systems® knows the rehabilitative power of being on the water and is giving back to Heroes on the Water! Founded in 2007, Heroes On The Water helps our nation's warriors and veterans from all branches of the United States military to relax, rehabilitate, and reintegrate through kayak fishing and the outdoors. Their programs serve active-duty military, veterans of the U.S. armed forces, first responders and the families of these groups.

Wilderness Systems, along with Kittery Trading Post®, is honored to partner with Heroes On the Water (HOW) and would like to thank our troops and first responders for their service by each making a $50.00 ($100.00 Total) donation to HOW for every Special Edition Tarpon 120 sold at KTP. This limited-edition model features a HOW medallion on the center console and comes in the signature red color of the organization.

The award-winning 120 is the most popular Tarpon model due to its manageable size. Known for offering excellent glide and maneuverability, it has great versatility for its trim size. Its efficient layout leaves plenty of room for paddlers and their gear, with features to accommodate a variety of hobbies.

In the mid 80s, Andy Zimmerman and John Sheppard were busy building boats for themselves when they began attracting attention among their paddling buddies. The innovative composite whitewater kayaks were of keen interest to their friends and soon word of mouth turned a handful of boats built for themselves and friends into a budding enterprise. And so began Wilderness Systems®.

Over the next few years, the pair added touring boats and polyethylene recreational kayaks to the line, diversifying to keep pace with the growing sport. The company grew rapidly and in the late 90s, merged with Vermont's legendary Mad River Canoe®.

Today, as a Confluence Watersports® brand, Wilderness Systems continues to keep pace with the sport of kayaking and offers an eclectic line of kayaks specifically geared toward your next water sports adventure.
