Wilderness Systems Tarpon 100

The Wilderness Systems Tarpon 100 is one of the most versatile Sit on Top kayaks available and the smaller version of the very popular Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120. The Tarpon 100 is playful in bumpier conditions, thanks to its wave piercing bow design, yet its full length keel design makes it easy to paddle on longer trips. With a wide and stable hull design, whether you like to paddle in the waves or on calmer day trips, you can rely on the Tarpon 100 to look after you.


The Tarpon 100 has a well thought out and user friendly deck lay out which includes some useful features for any type of paddling. An 8" round hatch in between your legs offers easily accessible storage for any items you may need on the water and storage pockets either side of this are ideal for fishing tackle etc. The adjustable foot pedals that are fitted to the Tarpon 100 as standard offer great support and extra control over the kayak, combined with the Phase 3 Seat these mean a very comfortable paddling experience.

Other features of the WIlderness Tarpon 100 include another 8" round hatch on the front, a large
storage well behind the seat with bungee's to keep your gear secure, convenient side mounted carry handles and slide trax rail for mounting of accessories front and rear. The Slide trax system, when combined with a Trax Mounting plate (see recommended kit tab) can be used to mount scotty rod holders without drilling the kayak.

No matter what you are planning on using the Tarpon 100 for; paddling on sea, rivers or any where else, it is one of the most comfortable sit on tops on the market.

We offer a delivery service for the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 100 throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.

Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.

Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales.

The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
