Key Features

Removable Slide in Skeg
Removable Slide in Skeg

A nice feature of this design is that the skeg can be removed with the kayak inflated or deflated. This may come in handy in shallow waters or in river currents. On flat-water, the skeg reduces yaw (swinging to the right or left). This increases track-ability during long flat-water touring, maximizing efficiency.

Modular Rigid Drop Stitch Floor Provides Double Protection For Whitewater Action
Modular Rigid Drop Stitch Floor Provides Double Protection For Whitewater Action

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 you may hit in whitewater. The modular design allows the DS floor to be easily removed for quick and thorough cleaning.

A nice feature of this design is that the skeg can be removed with the Explorer inflated or deflated. Simply remove it for whitewater 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.

  1. Susan and Robert Solomon

    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.

  2. Michael Purdy

    What a hoot! The 420 is easy to set up, extremely portable, simple to paddle. My wife and I are seniors now, we have always been adventurous and kayaking has opened a new door. We use it mainly to run rivers during spring run off.

  3. Sandra Crespo

    I can’t say enough GREAT things about our new kayaks! Seriously we had no idea that inflatable kayaks would be SO awesome! We previously had two sit on top Hobie and Wilderness kayaks because we did not know having an inflatable more versatile one for our RV would even be possible! We have been full-time RV traveling for 2+ years and these Sea Eagles are super convenient because they don’t take as much room and we don’t have to constantly bring in and out of our RV!

    To say we love them is an understatement! We first heard about this brand from our fellow RVing friends who actually saved hubbys life thanks to their Sea Eagle as they were going down the Arkansas River in Colorado! Hubby was going down on his sit on top and the rapids kept flipping his kayak over while my friends Sea Eagles went right over the rocks with no issues! At one point hubby was able to hold on to our friends Sea Eagle and catch his breath again (this alone was a HUGE determining factor when we chose the 420x!) A++++ for Sea Eagle!

  4. David Helton

    I purchased a Sea Eagle 126SR two years ago and quickly learned that not only was the boat great on Wisconsin’s inland lakes and rivers, it could handle the waves of Lake Michigan as well. From the very first moment I spoke with Sea Eagle Sales Staff, until after the boat was delivered, I was amazed at the fantastic Customer Service. I was amazed that it only took a matter of days from order to delivery.

  5. Rogier J , Zurich

    After positive flat-water experience with the 473rl, I got my 420x about a year ago and took it out to explore class II-IV rivers in Switzerland. It’s robust and stable, and I am impressed with the excellent self-bailing capacity and how little damage it took from the rocks I hit in the sometimes narrow rivers. The separate floor makes cleaning and drying easy. It’s not super lightweight but taking it on the train to starting points close to a station worked well for us. Sea Eagle service is very friendly. It would be great though to add flexibility to packages; I do, for instance, prefer the hand-piston pump, the backpack and would not have needed paddles. All in all, a 5-star recommendation to get this boat for white water or for great stability on flat water!

  6. Dan Hartman (verified owner)

    I am 57 years old and I had been wanting to get my lovely wife out on the water for some time. I knew I had to have something very stable to give her a feeling of security. When I saw the 420X and saw how wide it was, I took a chance and bought one. (By the way, I’m over 300 lbs, so if you think you’re too heavy or too old to try kayaking, you’re not!) The first time we took it out, we spent almost 3 hours on a lake at a state park in Pa. My wife, the farm-girl, never felt uneasy. The kayak tracked very well, even though there was a strong wind on the lake that day. Maneuverability was great and talk about stable! It is an unbelievable craft and I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for tracking, stability and ability to carry a heavy load. I think I’m going to get the NN 14′ SUP next.

  7. Mitchell Mak (verified owner)

    I love the Sea Eagle Explorer 420x. I only use it in a sea for leisure kayaking or fishing as where Im from, there are no lakes or rivers. It moves a little slow in the sea maybe due to the flat bottom and I should have considered the fasttrack. The Explorer is worth every penny and this kayak is a real piece of work. I would definifely buy another kayak from sea eagle again, as a matter of fact, Im looking at the razorlite but the shipping is just too expensive. Would be great if you had a dealer in Singapore.
