Paddling your kayak solo is easy – left, right, left, right. Coordinating 2-person paddling takes a bit of cooperation. Here’s how one Washington couple worked it out. “My wife, Kathy, and I have been married 47 years this month. We are blessed to live in Washington State; an area of beautiful mountains, forests, lakes and rivers. Kayaking the rivers and lakes is a great way to enjoy all that God has created. This is really the great fun of kayaking — seeing the wildlife up close and personal. We’ve always enjoyed camping. We’ve done it all, tent camped, back packed, … Continue reading HOW TO PADDLE IN TANDEM in a 2-Person Sea Eagle Sport Kayak

“My husband and I bought a Sea Eagle 370 last summer,” Linda Venard, of Indiana, told us. “I had always wanted a kayak and my husband was fully supportive of joining me on this new experience, especially since we needed to fill the hole of our last child leaving the nest for college. How would we replace all the activity that went with raising 4 children? Kayaking! We’d been so busy raising kids… “We had been so busy with school activities, sports, soccer, and so on,” Linda told us. “That’s how we spent a lot of our time. Now we … Continue reading THEIR CURE FOR EMPTY NEST SYNDROME? Sea Eagle Kayaking!
“Love it!!! The main reason we chose our 385 FastTrack was the ability to store it under the bed in our campervan. This works great. We’re impressed with how quickly it inflates with the pump. But equally as good is the comfort and stability. All in all, we are rapt with it and can’t wait to do some overnight trips.” When we received the above email from New Zelanders, Alison and Ken Polglase, we had to know more. Alison tells the rest of their story. “We live in Nelson, New Zealand, which is on the coast at the top of … Continue reading “WE GO CAMPERVANNING, TRAMPING & SEA EAGLE KAYAKING IN NEW ZEALAND.”

With nearly a dozen different boat models, Sea Eagle has an inflatable boat for every kind of boater. But how to choose? We spoke recently with Steve Brauns of Glen Haven, Colorado about how he decided on his Sea Eagle FastTrack 385. “I hadn’t really done any boating prior to getting this Sea Eagle FastTrack kayak. I got it specifically for a trip down the Flathead River in Glacier National Park in Montana. I’ll do more flat water lake kayaking than anything but I wanted something versatile so I could do some Class II and III rivers. Practical considerations I … Continue reading Buyers Guide: SEA EAGLE FASTTRACK vs. SEA EAGLE EXPLORER KAYAK
Dear Sea Eagle, I just have to tell you how much I love my new Sea Eagle SE330! I wanted a kayak I could handle by myself and that fit into my currently limited budget! My Sea Eagle fits in my compact car with no rack, no trying to figure out how to get it on top of my car, or from the car to the water. It inflates in about ten minutes, and I can carry it to the ramp easily. The kayak handles beautifully, and I don’t have to pay $40 for each rental! I am able to … Continue reading “THANK YOU FOR CONTRIBUTING TO MY QUALITY OF LIFE!” — Sea Eagle 330 gives her an affordable way to restore her spirits.
Dear Sea Eagle, On June 30th, 2012 we desperately needed to escape breathing the intense smoke from the Fontenelle Forest Fire, so we loaded up our kayak and drove north about 40 miles. In these pictures we are kayaking at the lower Green River Lakes…the headwaters of the Green River near our home in Wyoming. What a view of Square Top Mountain and the Wind River Mountain Range! We are really enjoying our 385 FastTrack here in Wyoming. We now get to visit beautiful remote areas on our local lakes! It’s very stable, maneuvers well, and glides easily through our high-altitude lakes! Sincerely, Scott & Anna Corwin God’s country turns hellish … Continue reading “WE DESPERATELY NEEDED TO ESCAPE so we packed up our Sea Eagle FastTrack and headed north…”
