Sea Eagle 420x Inflatable Kayaks and Canoe Reviews
7 Discount Packages available. starting at $1,099
We take the Sea Eagle along in the back of our pick-up truck when we go camping here in Florida to our great State Parks. We love the flexibility of this inflatable which has allowed us some great experiences exploring waterways we would never have seen due to not having a kayak with us. The little trolling motor is a plus when we tire of paddling or are heading into a strong wind.
Bought this after lots of consideration because my Old Town canoe was too "rocky" on the water for my wife. I was hoping for a stable, easy to move and durable kayak. I decided that the 420 would suit our size and needs. It was cheaper than another canoe and presented easier options for transporting. It arrived within a few days if ordering, was easy to put together and inflate. I did ask Sea Eagle helpdesk for advise about inflation pressure as I didn't get a pressure gauge, which would be a nice touch to be included. First use my wife loved it. Stable plenty of room and pretty tough. We found that it always went better with a skeg attached. I have now been converted to "good quality" inflatable boats and would highly recommend a Sea Eagle product.
I just love this Kayak, we have used it several times on lakes and white water and has performed perfectly. I hope to purchase another in the near future. The customer service has been great. I also look forward to purchasing additional accessories that will enhance the experience. I haven't purchased the pack yet but I look forward to packing into other locations with this kayak.
We've only had one opportunity to use our Explorer 420, which was on the upper Columbia R. near Radium Hot Springs, B.C. last August (sorry, no picture). The boat was a joy to assemble, inflate and paddle, and we can't wait for spring and open water to enjoy it again - already planning trips on local lakes, as well as the Missouri R., Blackfoot R. and North Fork of the Flathead R. in Montana. I'd gladly recommend the Explorer line to others, and I'm considering your SUP and inflatable canoe. Thanks!
