Built for Raging Whitewater or Open-Water Wilderness Touring. Are you a true adventurer? If your idea of a perfect weekend means harrowing treks and trips that make others blanch, you definitely qualify.
If you’re in an ordinary “dry-only” kayak with no drains, you must either portage your craft or get ready to sit in several inches of cold water. Similarly, a common “wet-only” kayak’s permanently open drains let water in, even in dead-calm water. The Sea Eagle Explorer Kayak is ready for wet OR dry conditions with four extra-large, easily convertible drains.
Drains OPEN, the craft bails itself in rough whitewater conditions. Drains CLOSED, they don’t let a drop of water in so you and your cargo stay comfortably dry in calm water. And worst case even filled to the gunwales with water, the Explorer Kayak still floats.
The Sea Eagle Explorer Kayak is as tough as nails and as rugged as the men and women who choose it. Stem to stern, it’s constructed of tough 0,000 denier polyester-supported high-pressure fabric with quadruple-thickness electronic-welded seams. How tough is the Explorer Kayak? In torture testing, we pounded it mercilessly with the claw of a claw hammer. It had no effect. Neither did stabbing it with a screwdriver. We simply couldn’t penetrate the “crocodile hide” hull.
The toughest off-road vehicles have skid plate protection underneath; In the same way, the Explorer Kayak has two separate floors for double protection where you most need it:
An outside, super-tough 0000 denier fabric floor
A separate inner inflatable floor lashed down on top of the outer floor.
The Explorer Kayak’s super-tough hide and wet-or-dry self-bailing drain valves are just two of the ways this boat flaunts its snotty, “bring it on” attitude. Integrated bow and stern spray skirts have water-deflecting guards to keep you dry and rope lacing that forms secure hand-holds and convenient tie-down points.
The Explorer Kayak can be piloted by one and easily accommodates two adventurers and tons of gear. With a beam of just over three feet wide, you get extremel stability. Two shock-absorbing inflatable seats (or optional high-back seats) are held rock-solid with nylon webbing that clips to six integrated D-rings. The Explorer Kayak comes complete and ready for action.
Choose from three hull sizes and two equipment packages. Each comes complete with hull, seats, two double-ended paddles, full instructions (printed and on DVD), inflation pump, repair kit, and convenient carry bag.
The Explorer 340x is an ideal day canoe for two, or a great solo whitewater or extended camping boat. Our most versatile all-around model, the 380x is capable of holding one person and a tremendous amount of gear or two people and several days of gear.
