Find Your Next Kayak

Higher Pursuits is an authorized dealer for Jackson Kayaks (fishing and recreational models) and Perception Kayaks. We are committed to helping you find the boat that is right for you. We are not your typical retail store, but instead are a small local dealer who paddle the boats we sell and have a knowledgeable sales staff.

Try it before your buy it

We know that purchasing a kayak is a big decision, so we want to help you select the kayak that best fits your needs. There is no better way to help you select a kayak than to actually paddle the boat, so we offer free demos of all our recreational and fishing models or if you want a longer trial, you can rent it for the day and really get a feel for the kayak. Recreational Rentals are $30 and Fishing Kayak rentals are $50. If you decide to purchase the same day as your demo we will apply your rental price to the purchase of the kayak. Call us at (931) 840-8575 to reserve a specific kayak for your demo.

Authorized Jackson Kayak Dealer (Fishing and Recreational Kayaks)

Higher Pursuits is an authorized Jackson Kayak Dealer for the Fishing and Exploration (recreational) models of kayaks.

Jackson Kayaks are manufactured in Sparta, TN. They make whitewater kayaks, recreational kayaks, fishing kayaks, and most of their own accessories. 

 If we don't have the kayak you want in stock, we can order the color and model directly from the factory. If the boat is in stock at the factory we can typically pick up the boat within a few days. If Jackson has to build the boat, then it can take 2 to 4 weeks depending on how busy the factory is. To place an order we require a 50% deposit. The remaining balance is due when you pick up your kayak.

We have a few remaining 2016 kayaks available at a 15% discount. Call us to verify our current inventory. As of June 1, 2017 we had the following models:

  • Kilroy - GI Jackson
  • Kilroy LT Real tree edition
  • Kraken 13.5 - GI Jackson

Authorized Perception Kayak Dealer

Perception Kayak

As of 2017, we began carrying a limited number of Perception Kayaks. We specifically choose models that are great boats for the rivers and lakes of Tennessee and include the most popular models such as the Pescador Pro 10, Pescador Pro 12, Striker, Sound 10.5, and Prodigy. Perception Kayak has been making kayaks for over 30 years and are made in South Carolina. They have a great line of fishing kayaks and recreational kayaks.

We are also proud to partner with Bending Branches Paddles and have several paddles available in our store and can also order whatever color, style or length paddle that you need.
