300x Explorer Reviews

4.8 out of 5 stars. (40)
Steven Newsom Verified Owner 1/7/2016 5.0 out of 5 stars.

I am very please with my 300x Purchase. I use it mostly for Kayaking with the Dog in Class I Class II Rivers. I haven't had a single problem, even in low water with the gravel n Mo. The boat set up in about 5-10 mins, and takes down in the same amount of time. I have taken it out about 20 times on various river here in Mo. I also like that everything breaks down and fits in a carry one size bag. I would and have recommended Sea Eagle boats to several people, especially considering the cost of renting boats is so high, and the fact that the 300x packs small and doesn't take up a lot of room in a closet or basement.

Cons

Need More D-Rings on Hull for strapping stuff down

When Floating days with a wide range of temp be sure to pump up boat when it is cold, and to bring air pump, air loses volume when it cools.

Ron Miller Verified Owner 1/7/2016 4.0 out of 5 stars.

OK... so, I'm retired (quickly approaching 70), new to kayaking, travel in an RV. I've taken the 300x on our local river (the Charles) several times and our local pond (Dug Pond) in mostly calm weather. I'm getting a number of inquiries from other boaters, impressed with the kayak. I'm adjusting to it and enjoying stretching my experiences on the water. I'll be taking it on our "snowbird" trip south in a week or so and will hopefully use it in various campsites.

If I could change anything about the kayak it would be for it to either raise the seat or lower/narrow the sides [I've added a cushion and that helps for rowing]. Those of us who aren't olympic athletes in the later stages of age (and, perhaps on the plump size) would appreciate it! ;)

I wanted a light inflatable that would fit into our 25' motorhome and so far it does! Thanks for making it!

Susan Court Verified Owner 1/7/2016 5.0 out of 5 stars.

After crossing off "kayaking" from my bucket list this summer, two weeks later I was the proud owner of a Sea Eagle Explorer 300x. This kayak has already provided many hours of relaxation on lakes in Montana. The Explorer foot pump inflates the kayak in about 5 minutes and deflation is even faster. The kayak folds easily and can quickly be tossed in the back of the car. The kayak isn't too heavy to hand carry, but I did buy a suitcase with rollers to put the kayak in - this really makes it easy for getting down trails to waters edge. It is sturdy, provides a great sense of security, and is easy to maneuver. There is some water seepage around the valve openings that you want to towel dry before folding the kayak for storage. Yes, I would buy from Sea Eagle again!

Leigh Kiser Verified Owner 1/12/2016 5.0 out of 5 stars.

I am absolutely in love with my Sea Eagle kayak!! I've had many people here in NC interested in it after seeing it perform. there are also people who do stand up paddleboarding and were very interested in your inflatable SUP. As an older woman new to whitewater kayaking, it makes it easier to travel and carry to and from drop off and pickup points without injuring my joints. This is the 2nd kayak I've owned and wouldn't buy from any other manufacturer. One day, I would like to try the Wave at the US Whitewater Center located an hr from me in Charlotte NC.

Key Features

Modular Rigid Drop Stitch Floor Provides Double Protection

Modular Rigid Drop Stitch Floor Provides Double Protection

The unique modular design of the Sea Eagle Explorer™ features a super rigid, high pressure, drop stitch floor that sits on top of an outside floor. This has several advantages. The high-pressure DS floor provides great rigidity and super responsive paddling performance. The reinforced outside fabric floor provides a double layer of added protection so it can bounce off rocks, logs, and other objects. The modular design allows the DS floor to be easily removed for quick and thorough cleaning.

16 Rapid Self - Bailing Easy To Open & Shut Drain Valves

16 Rapid Self - Bailing Easy To Open & Shut Drain Valves

When the 16 rapid self-bailing drain valves are open, you are sure to drain off water as quickly as it enters! With the drain valves closed you are certain to remain high and dry when paddling on flat waters such as lakes, bays and other bodies of water.

Large Removable Rear Center Skeg

Large Removable Rear Center Skeg

A nice feature of this design is that the skeg can be removed with the Explorer inflated or deflated. Simply remove it for whitewater and skinny water adventures (eliminating it as an obstruction)and replace it for flat water to reduce yawing (swinging to the right or left). This increases track-ability during long flat-water touring, maximizing efficiency.
