The Pelican Apex 130T was made for more than one person so you can share the kayaking fun with friends and family. This sit-on-top kayak is self bailing so you can stay as dry as possible. It is stable and easy to maneuver. The Apex contains plenty of storage space for two. It contains adjustable padded backrests for a comfortable paddling experience. The Pelican Apex 130T is made from a Twin Sheet Thermoforming which produces the strongest polyethylene available. This kayak will last forever (okay, maybe not forever, but a really long time) without leaking or breaking.
