For my wife's birthday I ordered His and Hers Kayaks.The sales lady that I talked to on the phone was excellent, a great asset! She walked me through the ordering process and help with excellent choices.No problem shipping them to our home in North Pole, Alaska.I asked for them to be in a "Plain Brown Wrapper"...was not an option but the boxes were discreet and the surprise happened.We opened the boxes and were in China Lake in North Pole by noon.
I am 70 and my wife is, not an option, she took to the boating like a duck. I had difficulty keeping up.We spent the summer on the lakes and rives of Alaska. Sneaking up on wildlife and enjoying the clear blue skies. One does need some caution when approaching moose feeding in the shallows. Spooking a moose = concern.Today it is 30 below and the rivers and lakes are hard, the kayaks are in the closet, another get asset.
They fit well in our jeep and we are looking forward to road trips and float trips after break up.Thanks, John
Everything about the kayak is perfect BUT it is scary tippy. We haven't given up on it yet, and at the end of the season last year we thought we had solved the problem. We shall see when we use it again in the early Summer.
An excellent craft; It's just too excellent for me. I need a wider beamed boat; Because unfortunately I'm wider beamed now! The craftsmanship of the craft is very sturdy; It's made for a more skilled person than I. It responds immediately to what I do; I'm just not quick enough to respond on a river; I need a ship that's more forgiving. I should also probably stick to lakes; But that's a story for another day!
I love it. I am 81 and first time in a kayak. My friend informed me that if I followed her instructions that I would never get into trouble. I never fell out. Did not have trouble getting in and out of my kayak. We got into some heavy wind but I have been going to the gym so had no trouble. I am in Arizona and use m kayak in northern Arizona. We watch weather conditions so I feel very safe and confident when out on the lakes. I would recommend this sport to anyone. I love it.
I was a little hesitant about the idea of an inflatable. Durability was important, but I loved the idea of portability. I am about an hour away from a lake, so I didn’t want to keep lifting a kayak on and off my vehicle. It takes me exactly 8 minutes to set the kayak out and inflated it. It is also super easy to deflate and pack up. And everything can fit in the carrying bag, kayak, paddle, seat, and life jackets.
I also like that it doesn’t take a ton of room to store. Right now it is packed up and stored for winter in the corner of the spare bedroom. I purchased the 2 seat kayak, I don’t know if there is enough room for 2. But, there is enough room for me, my 50 pound dog and some gear. So for us it is perfect. I would recommend.
I purchased my Sea Eagle canoe over thirty years ago and and I just ended up putting it out to the curb. This canoe served me well, on rivers, lakes and oceans and it never failed to impress me. It was rugged, extremely comfortable (everybody wanted to use it), light weight and easily transportable . Did I get my monies worth? Many, many times over. I'm about to sell my house, move full time into a conversion van and travel the country and a Sea Eagle is at the top of my list of things that I need to take with me. Thank you all for making a terrific product.
There is much to recommend this kayak; however, had i known it did not come with foot pegs, nor could they be added, i would not have bought it. It's just too much work to maneuver it using upper body only. I can't imagine taking it in any sort of whitewater, or anywhere that is not a placid river heading downstream, for that matter.
Everything about the boat has been met our expectations. Hope to be able to use it more next spring/summer.
First season of recreational kayaking winding down and its all about my SeaEagle...One of the best investments I have ever made. I was born near the water and I must live close to the water. Love the outdoors and the water and I am right in my element on the water. Took SeaEagle out in the Bay with some choppy waters and on a tranquil river for simple relaxation. Cannot say enough about the enjoyment I have achieved with my SE 330. Getting cold now so the days are numbered. But with a few "Indian Sumer" days left I am sure to get out a few more times before the trees are bare and some white stuff begins to fall. Thank you Sea Eagle.
Absolutely 100% satisfied with Sea Eagle 330. The cost benefits of not buying a roof rack for my car and kayak far outweigh the experience I achieve through the inflatable option. If recreational kayaking is your thing, like mine, the Sea Eagle product is by far the best!
