The Intex Explorer K2 kayak is a well-designed two-person inflatable kayak. This beauty is ready to use as soon as you get it out of the box. The kayak, paddles, patch kit and Intex Double Quick II Hand Pump all fit into a convenient storage bag. With the light weight of this kit, it can easily be carried by one person from vehicle to water.

The Intex Explorer K2 kayak was constructed to provide a relaxing water experience. It rides well in the water and, with its removable skegs, tracks very well in all water depths. Although it is designed and sold for use only on lakes and mild rivers, some users have reported success with the Intex Explorer K2 kayak on Class II and Class III rivers. You will need to keep in mind that the collapsible paddles are not designed for whitewater and will be the weakest part of kayaking on wilder rivers. The actual Intex Explorer K2 kayak is sturdy enough to survive rougher water.

The Intex Explorer K2 kayak has two separate air chambers. The first air chamber is in the hull and the other is in the floor. The floor is reinforced with an I-beam construction. The reinforcing allows this kayak to carry a heavier cargo capacity while providing additional protection for the floor air chamber. The construction of the two air chambers is such that if one is punctured, the Intex Explorer K2 kayak will remain buoyant. This will allow you to safely get to a location where you can use the patch kit. You should have no problem with getting back out on the water in under a half hour.

The Intex Explorer K2 is a striking yellow color. This, when coupled with how it rides on top of the water, increases the visibility of the kayak. Veteran kayakers know that the greatest danger on the water for kayakers is the lack of visibility when it comes to other boaters.
