How do you improve upon a legend? Introducing the New Tarpon. Retaining everything paddlers love from the celebrated original with improved comfort, stability, speed and paddler interface, the new Tarpon is easily the most versatile boat in the Wilderness Systems lineup that is equally at home on rivers, lakes or oceans. Every detail is carefully crafted and executed flawlessly to bring you boundless paddling perfection. Blending celebrated legacy design elements with a re-imagined modern flair, the new Tarpon delivers a dynamic on-water performance with enhanced agility and unmatched stability, while well-executed and innovative features elevate the paddler’s overall experience. The renowned Phase 3® AirPro seating system offers easy three-point adjustability, while plush honeycomb-vented fabric and ergonomic 3D foam provide maximum airflow, comfort and support. The new Tarpon features the DryTec Case – a new integrated dry box to keep your valuables safe, the MagnaTec magnetic water bottle holder, and flexible mounting options and accessory integrations, all of which come standard with the boat. A protective and replaceable skid plate, comfortable rigid carry handles, industry-leading storage capabilities, and thoughtful and configurable deck bungee rigging rounds out a robust list of attributes.
