420x Explorer Reviews

4.7 out of 5 stars. (75)
Don Young Verified Owner 4/29/2022 5.0 out of 5 stars.

I absolutely love this boat! I own a plastic kayak but after buying the Sea Eagle I will never buy anything except an inflatable kayak again. And it will be a Sea Eagle. I did a lot of research before buying the 420X, and considering how I use it, there is nothing out there that even comes close. I use it on lakes and rivers and it will keep up with any paddle boat out there. It's not a speed demon, but it performs very well. I do use an electric pump to inflate, then finish it off with the high pressure hand pump. The first time I had it out was on a lake in central Kentucky. Stability is amazing! I actually stood up and used it like a paddle board. This summer my wife and I are going to take it on a 17 mile trip with class 2 and 3 rapids, this was the #1 reason I bought this kayak. This thing paddles great either solo or tandem. After paddling it this past year, I am 100% confident we will have the best kayaking experience of our lives. Paddles great solo or tandem. 5 stars for customer service!!!

Daniel Morse Verified Owner 3/25/2022 4.0 out of 5 stars.

Great kayak and worth the money. It is an inflatable and requires appropriate care especially in how you store it. Once it's inflated it's virtually indestructible. If you develop a hole it is relatively easy to patch. We use our kayak all the time in Florida. We've taken it to see the Manatees at Three Sisters Springs, kayaked down the Ichetucknee River, and taken it fishing at Cedar Key. Love it! Make sure and buy the electric pump.

Landon Clay Verified Owner 3/24/2022 5.0 out of 5 stars.

So far so good,it is a wonderful thing for an old retired couple like us,we are having the time of our life,we have to thank you for such a wonderful thing!!..

William Yeager Verified Owner 2/27/2022 5.0 out of 5 stars.

Very stable and firm. Family has enjoyed this purchase including the family dog. We look forward to this summer’s fun! This more heavy so I think setting it up is best with two people. Deflation is very easy. Storing bag works great.

Remember to take your kids fishing!

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.
