Explorer Double Seater Inflatable Kayak

Regular price £849.00 Sale price £649.00
Tax included.

The Explorer is a flat bottom, open top kayak designed to effortlessly carve through calm, flat water. It's design makes it ideal for people who are looking for fun on rivers, lakes and flat waters and is suitable for beginners and experienced paddlers alike. We have made the new model slightly wider making it more stable than ever. The Explorer comes with luggage straps at the front and rear so it has plenty of room for dry bags and gear for your day on the water.  

Just like the Optimal, the Explorer is inflatable but designed to feel just like a solid kayak with no compromise in performance. What’s more, it is more affordable than the equivalent hard kayaks on the market.  

The Explorer comes with two removable seats, two 4-piece paddles, wheel bag as well as a removable skeg to add speed and stability. Following feedback from our original models these accessories have been upgraded for greater comfort and performance,

The explorer is available as a single or double seater.

NEW UPGRADE AVAILABLE: Upgrade to a 4 piece fibreglass paddle for just £50.00 per paddle

Great on the river and at sea

Purchased our double seater Explorer kayak last year and used it frequently throughout 2022 and now for the first time in 2023. It's been great on the local rivers on the south coast and also at sea. Here's to some more good weather and kayaking in 2023!

Everything and more than we'd hoped

I can find little, if any, fault with this Kayak. I can honestly say it is brilliant and worth every penny. It is quick and easy to inflate, comes in a good bag with wheels for easy transportation, cuts through the water effortlessly, keeps a straight track and feels incredibly stable especially when climbing in and out. We have used it on calm rivers and open broads in Norfolk in strong winds and it coped effortlessly in the choppy waters with the wind head on, side on and behind us. It stayed oncourse and was not blown about by the wind even a little. The ease of paddling this kayak along with the good quality, high backed, comfortable seats have enabled us to travel for longer periods than with our previous inflatable Kayak. There is ample space inside, more than enough room for my husband who is 6ft, 2in and myself to stretch out, footrests supplied, and still plenty of room for anything else you may want to take along on your trip. The quality is excellent, it looks awesome and we have had no end of people asking us about it when they see us with it out on the water. One thing to note is the kayak is long so turning tight corners takes a little preparation. Never did I think we would, at 62 years of age, be overtaking other paddlers on the water. Customer service great with next day delivery. Happy, contented paddlers we are in this super boat.

Our boards in a nutshell

We have a dedicated team who take great pride in the manufacturing the very best inflatable paddleboards. This high quality craftmanship improves all aspects of the boards production and is reflected in the outstanding quality of the finished product.

1. Comfortable Grippy DeckPad

The best deck pads are machine pressed in addition to gluing.

2. PVC with Woven Inner

Outer Skin Strength is important for long life and pressure capacity.

3. Fusion Technology

An additional layer of PVC is laminated to the dropstitch core. Fusion results in a lighter, stiffer, longer lasting board, and much better for the environment too than toxic glues.

4. Super Reinforced, High Density Dropstitch

The strength/lightness ratio of the fibres, is key to creating a super rigid but light board.

5. UV Resistant

Built to withstand long-term exposure to sunlight, minimising material decay and keeping colours clear and vibrant.

6. Triple Layer On Rail

A 3rd and final layer around the rail of the board creates a second seal and ensures there are no weak points on the board.

7. Heat Treated Seal

A laminated, heat pressed inner seam on the fused PVC surrounding the core of the board creates a 100% airtight and waterproof seal. Much better and stronger than gluing.
