7 Discount Packages available. starting at $899
We're new to this ... now that we have time in retirement. Read a lot and did the research to conclude that for a tandem inflatable, the 380x was the way to go. Have found it to be really well built, and easily usable. And it's been taken hours away from home without the need for a pickup truck, or roof racks. Love it!
There is a lot to like about the 380x. First off, the amount of space is excellent. Previously, I was paddling a 10ft Pelican that was very undersized for me. The 380x gives me plenty of room to spread out and pack lots of gear. I have not paddled this tandem, only solo, but that's why I bought it. The skeg helps the kayak track well, honestly very well. The kayak handles wind and choppy water great. The 380x is also sturdy enough for me to stand up and paddle. I also like that I can paddle on my knees. The only downside is the caps for the self-bailing holes. I have a hard time screwing a few of those back on. I have not used the kayak on whitewater, but I open the plugs to get water out and when I am air drying the kayak before I put it away. I love the seats, I upgraded the seats and bought the electric pump. Finally, the kayak is easy to store. The 380 handles well and is easy to paddle. I use the kayak for casual fishing, I wish it had more fishing accessories, but that's not a dealbreaker.
I have been extremely happy with my kayak. I used it several times over the summer and also was able to go do some lake fishing with the kayak. The weight is perfect for me as I am able to carry it to where I’m able to launch it and return back to the vehicle with no issues. It is completely self-contained and I am able to enjoy it with no additional equipment. I am very confident with my kayak and would gladly recommend it to anyone that is interested.
My wife and I love our new Explorer 380x.
We love how easy it is to inflate with the Sea Eagle volume pump and special hose attachment system.The inflatable seats are a special add on and are the most comfortable Kayak seat I’ve ever been in. It takes less than 10 minutes to inflate and we’re on the water. When done it deflates and folds up in a nice carrying bag. Sea Eagle has thought of every detail with this Kayak making it the best decision I’ve could have made.
