420x Explorer Reviews

4.8 out of 5 stars. (47)
Vincent Kurpan Verified Owner 1/7/2016 4.0 out of 5 stars.

We like the Explorer better than the Fast Track because it is deeper so waves will not splash over the sides so easily and less worry about gear falling out. It does not track quite as well but we added a couple extra fins up front to help with that and we like it. We generally use canoe paddles to avoid being dripped on but it is faster with kayak paddles. It is a well made boat and very versatile. It's a good camping boat - which is mostly how we use it. I do wish the self bailing drain plugs sealed better. They don't leak much but even a little water means we have remove the floor and dry things before putting away. We always leave them in so will probably try sealing them permanently in some way. Overall, we like the explorer a lot. It's stable & safe and goes along pretty well for an inflatable. It's also light weight and easy to carry and stow. I would give it 5 stars if the drain plugs didn't leak at all.

Bob Neidinger Verified Owner 1/7/2016 5.0 out of 5 stars.

We have the 420x Explorer and we absolutely love our Sea Eagle and can't wait for summer to go back on the water. It has plenty of room for two and our gear, our gear being: bottles of water, snacks, sunscreen, extra towels and my shoes. People were in disbelief to see such a big rigid kayak inflate from such a small pack. Many times we would go out on the main lake, during the busy times and in rough conditions, to the disbelief of on lookers. By the way it handles great in rough water. Every time we took our Sea Eagle out heads turned. Not only did heads turn but people of all ages and backgrounds wanted to know all about our Sea Eagle and I think we always did a good job of being Sea Eagle Ambassadors.

We can't say enough good things about our Sea Eagle. The only problem I've had is the Sea Eagle Life Vests were not comfortable. We purchased new vests after our first outing in our Sea Eagle. The vests we have now have a large V neck and do not ride up and choke us like the Sea Eagle vests.

Ken Leys Verified Owner 1/7/2016 4.0 out of 5 stars.

We have alot of good times,we use it on the lakes and rivers, even did a little white water. Great unit easy to use and set up. We travel in 5th wheel the Kayks fits in the compartment and is ready to use in the a few minutes. One of our Daughters put our six grand children in the Kayak there ages were from 4 to 7 and down the river they went and all had room and fun.Had an other couple try our boat and they purchaced one a short time later.

Thanks you have a good product keep it up. There maybe a paddle board in on our wish list.

Thanks Ken

4.5 it would be a 5, but the rudder cracked has always been hard to install and remove. I use a small little rubber hammer.

George Rapin Verified Owner 1/7/2016 5.0 out of 5 stars.

We have a Krogen 42 trawler as our cruising boat and cruise in the northwest waters of British Columbia. During that time we stay at various anchorages in some of the most beautiful waters to be found anywhere. We bought the SeaEagle 420x to provide a safe way for my wife to take the dog ashore instead of having to use our dinghy. The 420x was stable, seaworthy and easy for her to get ashore and back again. It also became the preferable mode of touring the multitude of islands we frequent. You can get close to the surf surrounding the islets and not be fearful of damaging the kayak if you scrape a reef. Ours is a salt water application primarily. In the 10 years we have had a 380x and a 420x there has never been a deflated chamber. Yes, we are satisfied with this kayak and SeaEagle.

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.
