Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120

made in uk Manufactured in the UK

The Tarpon 120 is rigged for adventure and is a great all-round touring sit on top kayak. With a 159kg max capacity the Tarpon 120 can comfortable be paddled by users up to around 110kg, making this great for a range of paddlers. The efficient hull cuts well through the water and will handle choppy wind waves well. The Tarpon is rigged with many premium features. Adjustable foot rests are fitted as standard: these provide a strong point of contact with the kayak. A large easy-open bow hatch provides ample space for carrying a fold up trolley such as the C-Tug. Another storage hatch is fitted just forwards of the seat, along with storage pockets with mesh covers. A large rear tank well offers plenty more space for a big dry bag full of kit!

The Tarpon 120 is great sit-on kayak for fishing too - simply add two flush mount rod holders (optional available to add above) to turn the Tarpon 120 into a fishing platform. It has ample storage space for carrying the kit you need, as well as your catch! SlideTrax are also fitted alongside the foot well and rear tank well for easy accessory attachment without the needd to drill into the hull. Add accessories such as rod holders, fish finder mounts, camera mounts and more quickly and easily.

A great all-round performer on coastal and inland waters.

We offer a delivery service for the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 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.
