Kayaks that Don’t Give Up!
If you need an affordable boat to handle a wide variety of uses, the Sea Eagle 330 inflatable kayak is an excellent choice. Here’s some reasons why:
Affordable – The kayak is remarkably affordable. Package prices usually cost less than $350, and that is before whatever sale Sea Eagle happens to be running. The package price also includes everything you need. There is nothing extra to buy.
Durability – The Sea Eagle 330 kayak is a “soft sided” inflatable boat. This means you can press your finger into a fully inflated boat by ¾ of an inch, on average. In short, the kayak isn’t inflated to the high air pressures found in guide quality inflatable rafts or in the higher-end inflatable kayaks offered by Sea Eagle and other kayak manufacturers.
The lower air pressure, however, doesn’t mean that the kayak is less durable. Instead, it means the kayak is prone to differing types of damage than a high pressure inflatable boat is. In general, high pressure inflatable boats are most prone to getting holes/punctures due to hard impacts with immovable objects, such as rocks and logs. By contrast, soft sided boats (like this kayak) are most prone to punctures when they are dragged across sharp surfaces, such as rocks along the river shoreline or across a cement parking lot. By lifting the boat and not dragging it across rocks or cement, you’ll prevent 90% of all potential punctures.
The Pelican “Apex 100” is an affordable, easy to paddle sit-on-top kayak. Light and easy to handle, this will become you go-to boat for exploring local lakes and slower rivers. An outstanding value package, the self-bailing Apex 100 comes with an adjustable padded backrest, stern storage platform with a bungee and molded footrest. Our manufacturing process allows us to insert additional flotation for increased buoyancy and safety.

This kayak is perfect for exploring lakes and cruising down slow rivers. It’s definitely not a white water capable craft, but that should be obvious based on its design. We like that its lightweight design makes it easy to transport back and forth. This Pelican Apex weighs just 40 lbs, so it’s a breeze to carry with a friend, and can be carried by one person if need be, although it’s a bit awkward to carry because of its size. The Apex 100 is a very beginner-friendly kayak. It’s ultra-stable design makes it easy to maneuver, even for a first time paddler. But don’t get me wrong – it’s not a strictly “beginner” kayak – it will suit the needs of a variety of paddlers, both novice and experienced.
