When is owning one Sea Eagle inflatable kayak not enough? Wendy Graves of Utah tells us when you’re paddling the crystal-clear waters of String Lake in Grand Teton National Park with the whole family, one Sea Eagle won’t do. They needed two…then three…and hope to add a fourth one soon! Here’s Wendy’s story.

“The first time my husband, Patrick, and I went to String Lake in Grand Teton National Park, I saw people boating and I knew I wanted one. When we got home we purchased a traditional canoe. But because loading and unloading it on top of the car was such a hassle, we never took it back to the Park. Then we found Sea Eagle!

We take our niece and nephew vacationing with us, so we first purchased two Sea Eagle 370’s. We all had so much fun! It was so easy to take them with us and get them to the water. We spent the whole day playing around and even had some squirt gun water fights. Of all the things we do together, the days we’re boating are everyone’s favorite days.

We loved our two Sea Eagle kayaks but as our niece and nephew have gotten older and bigger, we needed another boat. This year we purchased the new 385ft FastTrack™ kayak. I did not know I could love it more than our 370 kayaks!

Wendy's husband, Patrick, took this photo of Wendy a couple years ago when they owned just two Sea Eagles — two 370's. When niece, Kenedy, and nephew, Connor, got older and bigger, the Graves added a third boat; a Sea Eagle FastTrack. At this point, Wendy says, "I'm hooked" and has her eye on a Sea Eagle SUP - Stand Up Paddleboard.

We recently returned to Grand Teton National Park for our annual vacation with niece, Kenedy, 13; nephew, Connor, 16; and all three kayaks. The whole family had fun paddling the lake, fishing, and swimming. While boating, we’ve seen elk, bear, deer — I even saw a pine marten.

She fell in love all over again

Then I discovered a new love when I tried the FastTrack™ as a stand-up paddleboard. It took me a few tries to get my balance but it was a whole new world to be able to stand up and maneuver around the lake.  It’s incredibly stable and easy to learn on. By the end of the day I could paddle anywhere. We had so much fun we are planning a second trip this year to spend on the water.

“My favorite place in the world”

I’ve always loved the water. But my favorite place in the world is String Lake in The Grand Tetons. We’re ‘casual paddlers’ and boating with our family is a great way for all of us to connect and have very relaxing fun together.

Easy ‘Pack & Take’ boats

Patrick did a lot of research and found Sea Eagle had a lot of good reviews. Because they’re inflatable, they’re so easy to travel with. We ‘pack and take’ them with us even if we don’t have specific boating plans. We recently drove through a part of Utah we’d never explored. We stopped at a lake — Smith Morehouse Lake — and went Sea Eagle boating even though we hadn’t planned to.

My birthday’s coming up and I’ve asked for a Sea Eagle Stand Up Paddleboards. The boats are AMAZING! And every time we’ve gotten a new Sea Eagle it just keeps getting better.

My advice? Give boating a try. Sea Eagle’s a great way to go because you can take them anywhere easily. It’s an easy way to have fun. And they’re affordable, especially the 370. Once we tried it, we were hooked!”
