Review: Sea Eagle
Inflatable boats and accessories

Fifty Sense Seal of Approval We were attracted to this company because we love the idea to be traveling and have a two-person kayak in the trunk of our car for that unexpected adventure. Starting in 1968, Sea Eagle has sold inflatable boats and kayaks of their own design. Superior materials and high quality accessories make Sea Eagle boats great for fishing, camping exploring, sailing, and many other outdoor activities.

SE 330 Deluxe package

We tested this two person kayak and were impressed with the quality and ease in use! It only took us a few minutes to inflate it with the foot pump and we were ready to hit the river. It will hold 500 pounds, but only weighs 26 lbs. itself. It will carry two adults and gear, but only needs one adult to carry it to the water. One of the reviewers was a 5'3" female and had no problems getting it to the river.

The SE-330 inflatable canoe packs down to fit in a storage bag, but has cargo space for camping supplies for several days. This inflatable canoe can be used for fishing, yacht tending or skin diving. For river runners, the Sea Eagle 330 can handle up to class three whitewater. In many ways, this is the easiest to use, the most versatile and the most fun inflatable canoe we have seen.

We loved the thick 33 mil Polykrylar hull, and a I-beam construction floor for extra rigidity, inflatable spray skirts, removable inflatable front and rear seat. The seats can be placed anywhere, so you can use it for two people or just one determining the best paddling position.

Front and rear rope handles and a self-bailing drain valve is a handy feature on white water rivers or in ocean surf. Tracking is very important in a kayak. Inflatable kayaks need skegs to track smoothly across the water - otherwise your paddling effort is wasted and this comes with two skegs.

To make this even more flexible, it comes with a great carrying case to help us stay organized during our trips.
