380x Explorer Reviews

4.6 out of 5 stars. (158)
William Ketner Verified Owner 1/5/2022 5.0 out of 5 stars.

Love our kayak! Easy to transport, durable, easy to set up and take down, materials so far seem excellent. Sea Eagles staff are great! Customer service answered all our questions, gave us a discount on the paddle we wanted (carbon fiber). Shipping was right on time, in fact a few days early. We used it on our 5 week trip in MT last year and plan to use it again this year.

Marcus McCloud Verified Owner 12/17/2021 5.0 out of 5 stars.

Exceptional! This is the perfect boat for my wife and I. In our 60s but still managed to do over 100 whitewater (class 2-4) miles last season along with lots of lake miles and our 380x performed beautifully. We had wrestled with whether to buy solo kayaks or a tandem but this was a great choice. Plenty of room for both of us as well as a grandchild. Simple to transport and inflate. Incredibly durable. Very impressed with the Sea Eagle staff and service. Our good friends also bought a 380x after they saw how pleased we were with ours! Can't wait for next season!

James Case Verified Owner 11/10/2021 5.0 out of 5 stars.

Have had the kayak out and in the water (lakes) about ten times in both eastern PA and Colorado. It tracks well with the skeg in flat water and is very stable, which was a concern since we are both in our late sixties. Setting up takes about ten minutes and taking down a bit longer with toweling it out. We are very happy with our purchase and would highly recommend it.

William Telford Verified Owner 11/5/2021 4.0 out of 5 stars.

We have enjoyed our 380x.The customer service was great and the delivery time was on time. I would recommend a sea eagle product. I would appreciate some feed back on a good preservative treatment to use on the 380x kayak.

Sea Eagle's reply:

Thank you for the review William. Here is a great product to preserve your material www.seaeagle.com/Accessories/care-preservation/303-protectant

For any assistance please contact our customer service team.

Key Features

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.

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.

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.
