Crabbing in the Sea Eagle 300x Explorer

By Tom Schlichter We’ve seen some interesting ways to put Sea Eagle kayaks to good use, but this one from Jay Santos, of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, is truly unique. Santos uses his Sea Eagle 300x Explorer inflatable kayak to catch Dungeness crabs, which he then sells to co-workers and friends. “I actually got started when a buddy told me he enjoyed catching crabs in tidal waters from his paddleboard” explains Santos. “One day we went out for a paddle and he showed me how it’s done. He offered to lend me one of his crab traps to give it … Continue reading Crabbing in the Sea Eagle 300x Explorer

FOR THIS ARKANSAS PADDLER, SEA EAGLE 370 SPORT KAYAK IS A PERFECT FIT

By Tom Schlichter Mike M. isn’t one of those guys that was born with kayaking in his blood. In fact, it was just in the past few years that the retired auto mechanic, an Arkansas resident, first realized he really liked paddling. “I got into kayaking because my girlfriend liked it,” says Mike. “We took a trip together down the Buffalo National River in a canoe a couple of years ago and I graduated from there. When it came time to buy my own kayak, I purchased a Sea Eagle 370 inflatable kayak. Now I absolutely love it. We started … Continue reading FOR THIS ARKANSAS PADDLER, SEA EAGLE 370 SPORT KAYAK IS A PERFECT FIT

Paddling in a Pandemic

March 14th – As I paddle out into Port Jefferson Bay the morning sun is blocked by a cloud bank. Soon the clouds will clear and the sky will be blue. I consider myself lucky to be out on the water enjoying all this while a Pandemic makes its way across America. By Cecil Hoge March 14, 2020 On this Saturday, I took the opportunity to go for an early morning paddle. That is easy for me because I live by the water and have a dock about 100 feet from my back door. So all I have to do … Continue reading Paddling in a Pandemic

50 Years of Selling Inflatable Boats – Part 3 – From the Internet to The Future!

By Cecil Hoge At the end of part 2 of this history, our Sea Eagle boat business had already been in business for 30 years and gone through many changes. By 1998 we had re-built our Sea Eagle boat business and had found new ways to sell more inflatable boats through our new Sea Eagle website. In doing so, we expanded our range of products to include transom boats, whitewater & camping kayaks, fishing boats and a new kind of inflatable catamaran kayak called the Sea Eagle PaddleSki.  From our earliest beginnings in 1968 to the present, our goal was … Continue reading 50 Years of Selling Inflatable Boats – Part 3 – From the Internet to The Future!

FISHSKIFF 16 – SHALLOW WATER STEALTH

By Bill Marts My hat is off to Sea Eagle Boats. I had been looking for the exact right craft to guide clients in skinny/shallow waters for bass, panfish, trout and carp. And to explore waters where a normal boat can’t access. Two years ago I found it! It is the FishSkiff 16′ inflatable boat from Sea Eagle Boats. I searched blogs, YouTube, Google, advertisements and I finally came across Sea Eagle and checked them out. There it was. Under fishing inflatables. I ordered one, but they were already sold out of their first order. Maybe some others with the … Continue reading FISHSKIFF 16 – SHALLOW WATER STEALTH

Labyrinth Canyon in the Sea Eagle FastTrack 385ft

by Corey Thayn After owning our inflatable kayaks, the Sea Eagle FastTrack 385ft for a year, it was time for a multi-day adventure. The premier flatwater river trip in the western US is floating the Green River through Labyrinth Canyon, in southern Utah. The canyon stretches 46 miles from the popular put-in spot at Ruby Ranch to Mineral Bottom, just north of Canyonlands National Park. There are several alternate start points that can stretch the river miles to almost 70 miles, but those extra miles are through rolling hills of sagebrush and farms, not quite as picturesque as the high … Continue reading Labyrinth Canyon in the Sea Eagle FastTrack 385ft

Luggage Goes Fishing in Patagonia

Big Salt, Big Adventure

By Warren Maddox At first glimpse of the chocolate powerhouse, I knew we were in for an epic river run. I hadn’t seen water this powerful in person since running the Lions Head section of the Matanuska River in Alaska. The difference was that I had taken that current in a huge raft; I’d be taking on this challenge in a Sea Eagle Explorer 380x. Seeing others at the Big Eddy put-in quickly dispelled any apprehensions, and I began suiting up. The Upper Salt River — a true Arizona classic, and one I had run before at low flows. At … Continue reading Big Salt, Big Adventure

50 Years of Selling Inflatable Boats – Part 2 – A Winding Road To The Internet

By Cecil Hoge At the time we had decided to launch our website, SeaEagle.com, our line of inflatable boats had shrunk from 12 models to 6 models. A major reason for this is that our supplier for supported fabric boats had been taken over by a competitive inflatable boat company. So our supplier of Sea Eagle Explorer kayaks and Sea Eagle transom boats, who at that time was Hutchinson Marine in France, got bought out by another French company making Bombard inflatable boats. The founder of Bombard boats was a man named Alain Bombard. He was a French biologist who became famous for taking an inflatable boat across … Continue reading 50 Years of Selling Inflatable Boats – Part 2 – A Winding Road To The Internet
