380x Explorer Reviews

4.6 out of 5 stars. (170)
Marc Duval Verified Owner 6/17/2022 4.0 out of 5 stars.

I can only provide feedback on service and delivery and quality as we have not tried it yet. I commend you all on your order, delivery and service. This kayak is easy to

Inflate both manually and with the electric pump. As for the pump it would be great if there was an adapter for AC option. Based on my examination of the 380x it’s really well put together. Once we take it out for our first excursion will let you know how it handles. Btw, we also have the electric motor to try also. I purchased two deep cycle batteries 20 and 30Ah. I’m looking forward to determining how long I can run the water snake on the batteries.

James Ryan Verified Owner 6/16/2022 5.0 out of 5 stars.

I just took out my Explorer 380x for first time. I have been trying to decide should I purchase one for over a year, so i pulled the trigger.

I have been kayaking for many years in a hard shell kayak. My wife is not able to paddle any more, the securing of the boat to the car and lifting the kayak to the roof was becoming a hassle for me. As a result I stopped kayaking. I am in my 70's so I was looking for a solution because I wanted to get away from the masses on shore.

My biggest fears were inflating and deflating. I purchased the electric pump w/battery and it works great! Deflating was easy also. I chose carefully where I inflate and deflate. so that when it is folded, I do not have to carry the folded kayak. show full review ▼ Just lift out or back in.

Just lift out or back in.

Tracking was much better than I anticipated. Very well considering! Moved along at an acceptable speed. We hit wind and waves on the way back and the boat was very seaworthy!

You do have to dry your boat before putting away, I do most of that at home.

Mike Scheumaker Verified Owner 6/16/2022 5.0 out of 5 stars.

Easy to pack and unpack. Handles great.

Rodney Smith Verified Owner 6/13/2022 5.0 out of 5 stars.

This is a replacement for a 2000 vintage Sea Eagle. Loved the 1st boat & am enjoying this new 380X. We're "senior citizens" yet still find the boat easy to store, inflate, haul & paddle. Had it in the water twice so far: on flat water on the Comal River in TX & expect to have it on Class I, II & maybe III's on the Gunnison River in Colorado in a few days. Did not have a scag on the 1st boat & have not tried the scag on this new one. Bought the axle/wheels to make hauling the boat over longer distances. Love the portability & the way the boat handles.

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.
