We bought two Sea Eagle 330 inflatable Kayaks, hauled them to fun valley Colo and rafted the Rio Grand about 3 dozen times. They worked out GREAT! I have an order in for two more as I write this. They come with a water proof patching kit. Which came in handy when my nephew ran over a log and punched a small hole in the bottom. Hold on, let me finish. The Kayaks have three separate chambers, punch one and yous still got two to keep you afloat. He punched the bottom chamber, it went flat, and we didn't even know it till we stopped for a sandwich. The other two chambers held the Kayak bouyant that good! We dried the hole, patched it, and were back in the water in 30 minutes. Never had another problem. These things are rugged, easy to carry, blow up and use. We hiked into Hunters lake about a mile, carrying our kayaks. We fished that lake all day, hiked back out with our kayaks and a load of fish. Like I said, I just ordered two more. TO top everything off, the Sea Eagle 330 is ON SALE. I have two on the way for a total of $$$ bucks including shipping. You can't beat that! I've also hauled them to the gulf of mexico and fished the surf at Galveston, Port Aransas, and Rockport. They performed extremely well. But you want to watch your hooks, you'll be breaking out the patch kit. (I was careful enough, that I didn't have to:) Caught several fish from the Sea Eagles though.
Easy to transport and carry. Fits well inside our minivan (lying down) or on top of the roof rack. The paddle collapses easily into two pieces for transport. Easy for one person to load into the car. Recommended for ages 5 and up, though perhaps better for daring/bold/adventurous 5 year oldsâ€¦ or ones that are a little older than 5 years old. However, we found this to be a very solid and sturdy kayak, with little concern for accidental tipping or capsizing. I think overall a great kayakâ€¦just need to wait for our little one to grow and become a little more daring to get out there and explore!
We bought two Weber 132 three months ago. We decided to try the sit on top for ease of getting on and off. It is just that! Our primary use is for exercise and a little fishing. We have used them multiple times on rivers and lakes. The Weber 132 for an entry level kayak is affordable, comfortable and very stable on the water. Our friends have tried them and now own them as well. the best part, my Wife and I don't argue over who's paddling the wrong way anymore. Anybody want to buy a couple used canoe's? I believe we are sold on kayaks.
