About the 300x Explorer Inflatable Kayak

The 300x stands alone in a class of it's own! Designed to tackle whitewater as well as open-water and surf, this kayak is sure to add years of fun!

About the Explorer™ Series

Sea Eagle Explorer Kayaks are great wet or dry boats - they are tough enough for class four whitewater, but stable, dry and comfortable on flat-water as well.

Now with 16 super-fast self-bailing drain valves that can be left open for wet whitewater and ocean kayaking or closed for high and dry flat-water paddling.

The Explorers also feature a removable slide skeg for improved tracking on open water. Pound for pound these new Explorers are champions capable of handling any type of adventure!

300x Explorer in the news

Real World Survivor
If you do purchase an inflatable raft for your bug-out, look one for one with a reinforced hull made out of high-pressure fabric, such as the Explorer series from Sea Eagle.

I Purchased the Sea

Eagle 300x because I was tired of lugging around a 70 pound Kayak. 70 pounds seems heavier than it used to:)

Weight

The Sea Eagle boat is very manageable weight wise. The boat is 28 pounds. The seat and gear about the same. I carry them separately and have no issues. Seat straps on easy at waters edge.

The customer service at Sea Eagle is outstanding.

I love my Sea Eagle! I never thought I could feel so comfortable in a kayak. I always was a bit nervous in my hard shell kayak, especially getting in and out. With the Sea Eagle, I don’t even think about it anymore, I can step right in without rocking the boat. If you want some fun don’t install the rudder! You can turn on a dime, I even went downriver backward for a spell. The one pain is waiting for it to dry completely before putting it back in the bag. It can take a while. I’d recommend this boat to anyone.

I use my 300X for surfing in NE Florida. The boat surfs well and the many drain holes let the water out as fast as it comes in. The boat never bogs down with water. The skeg allows you to cut across the wave face, not just surf straight in. I pump the boat up to the maximum recommended pressures and there is very little flex on the waves. I have added a set of thigh straps to help lock me into the boat. I use a canoe cart to 'trailer' the boat the 3 blocks to the beach access, then carry it down to the water. I am 70, but I don't have any trouble carrying the boat. So far I have surfed beach break waist to head high waves. Surfing the 300X is a lot of fun and the boat is plenty rugged enough to get knocked around in the surf. If you surf anything larger than knee to waist high you probably are going to dump once or twice in a session, so be prepared. I wear a whitewater PFD and use a paddle board leash to keep me attached to the boat.

Our 300x kayaks are amazing! They fit our lifestyle perfectly. We travel in a small camper and have kayaked the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico along the Florida panhandle and the Pacific Ocean. We have also paddled many lakes, streams & rivers from Nova Scotia to Glacier National Park. A highlight of our inland paddling was parts of the Colorado River. The most amazing paddling was off the Newfoundland coast where we paddled around an iceberg and thru an ice flow. An unbelievable opportunity!

Hi Guys. We have been loving the kayak so far. We have been cruising the waters of long island's south shore. The kayak is the perfect size to fit my wife and youngest daughter while I and my oldest daughter follow along in the 385fta (which is equally amazing). This summer I am hoping to take the kayak out surfing for the first time.

The kayak is very lightweight and is very easy to maneuver on the water. We bought a 12v electric pump which gets us on the water in about five min after we pull up to the launch site. The kayaks are super sturdy and we are looking forward to many years out on the water. They both have exceeded our expectations.

We've been very impressed with the build quality and the convenience of the Sea Eagle kayaks, We had done a lot of research on kayaks and it was clear to us that was the brand to get. The order was processed very quickly and our kayaks arrived in good order with no issues.

Setup is quick and we are able to get our kayaks into the water very quickly and easily. Paddling them is easier than expected and they are very stable. We've not had an upset yet.

My wife has been a long-time hard shell whitewater kayaker, but this past summer she wanted to bring our new poodle, Kato, on some of the easier whitewater family trips. We bought the Sea Eagle 300X because we got to borrow a friend's boat and learned first hand of its versatility and ease of handling for moderate whitewater. Kato loved being included on the family trips and adapted to riding the rapids in the 300X with poise. My wife appreciated it quick maneuverability. Looking forward again to the upcoming season.

Love this kayak. Lightweight but sturdy. I took it out in several lakes and used it for fishing. Love the swivel seat easy to get in and out. Easy to set up and go in 5 minutes. Same with tear down.

I purchased the 300x for a 5 day unsupported trip down the Salmon River. The boat was a solid performer on Class 3 rapids. I would suggest the leg straps for any serious rapids as they provided great control and stability. I would definitely recommend this boat!

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.
