About the Caribbean 12 / View Our Kayak Comparison Chart
Length: 12' | Beam: 30" | Weight: 45 lbs | Capacity: 300 lbs | Stability: High
MSRP $1,379 / Find out where to buy the Caribbean 12

At 12 feet in length with a 30 inch beam, the Caribbean 12’s stability is extraordinary, yet the highly efficient Eddyline hull design and our smooth Carbonlite material lets her glide through the water with ease. Tracking is exceptional for a twelve footer, making travel over distance much easier. Easy turns are accomplished with a slight lean and sweep. Eddyline applied the principals of the unique Gull Wing configuration on the Caribbean hull to retain efficiency and excellent tracking while maximizing stability. The extra sitting height produced by this configuration allows more comfortable seating while helping the cockpit and tank well to drain effectively.

The large front hatch, center day hatch and rear hatch give easy access to most of the interior space. Sea Dog foot pedals, comfortable carbon side carry handles, mounting tracks for numerous accessories and an abundance of mounting surfaces provide a variety of options for customizing the boat to suit your specific needs. An optional foot controlled rudder and rear tank well cover complete the package. The Caribbean has a comfortable, high back seat and the seat well even has its own drain to keep you dry. Two scuppers in the cockpit and two in the tank well keep the deck drained well up to loads of 300 lbs.

Beautifully finished with our high gloss UV resistant Carbonlite material, you are bound to appreciate all that we have incorporated into this exciting kayak.

Options include: Footewell traction pads, Foot Controlled Rudder, Stern Tankwell Cover, Flush Mount Rod Holders

NOTE: Feb 20, 2012 – Eddyline changed the name of the Calypso to the Caribbean. Everything else remains the same.

The new Eddyline Caribbean is a blast! At 45 pounds it was a breeze to carry to and from the water. The large carbon carry handle made it easy to shoulder and makes a great place to grab when doing re entries. The initial stability of this kayak is better than any other 30” wide kayak I have tested, yet because of the efficient hull design and Carbonlite material, it was very speedy on the water. All and all I think Eddyline hit a total home run with the Caribbean.

Outside Magazine   The 7 Best Boats of Summer 2012

THE TEST: Most sit-on-tops are barges—impossible to lift and heavy in the water. The Caribbean sets a new standard. The boat’s lightweight hull is a slippery blend of acrylic and ABS plastic with a nearly indestructible acrylic cap. The hard glossy finish won’t break down from UV, so you can store it outside. The hull is shaped like a powerboat’s for added stability and reduced drag. The result: it paddles like a decked kayak with a solid, wide platform that beginners, anglers, and photographers all appreciated.
