More In-Depth Info

The Sea Eagle 370 sport inflatable kayak is virtually identical to the Sea Eagle 330 (see Sea Eagle 330 Review) except that it is slightly larger, weighs 6 pounds more and can hold an extra 150 pounds.

It has a self bailing drain valve that allows you to quickly rid the kayak of excess water if needed. The 370 is quite versatile and great for all different water types but is truly an entry level kayak.

It is affordable and stable and a great option for beginners that are just starting out in the sport of kayaking or novice paddlers.

One thing you can be sure of is that Sea Eagle kayaks are sturdy and extremely hard to puncture. They can literally be dragged over anything and take a huge beating.

They are tough and have earned the reputation as being some of the best. This is not a high end model, however it is still good quality and ideal for recreational fun, fishing and paddling adventures.

Performance

Even though this is an entry level kayak and the cheaper of the Sea Eagle models, it is still a lot more solid than many other inflatable kayaks in this price range.

The 370 can hold up to 650 pounds of cargo and consequently can be loaded right up and keep on floating.

It maneuvers very well, is responsive to quick turns and is really easy to paddle. The tracking is decent but not fantastic… however it is probably a little better than you might expect for a kayak in this price range.

A Lot For Your Money

I think that one of the biggest selling features of this inflatable kayak is that you really get a lot for your money.

The price on the Sea Eagle sport kayaks is quite low and it includes the kayak, the paddle(s), the inflatable seat(s), the carry bag, the pump and the repair kit. The only other thing you need to get started is a lifejacket.

Convenience

The Sea Eagle 370 is extremely light weight for a tandem kayak which makes it a breeze to bring anywhere you want to go.

It is very easy for even one person to carry and it rolls up into a nice little package. Besides transporting in the trunk of your vehicle, it can also easily be taken on an airplane.

I have actually met a few people on my travels who also keep this exact kayak model on their larger boat and use it to paddle from ship to shore. It is a really convenient kayak to have.

Another great feature is that the seats can be moved around. If you want to paddle solo, you can remove one of the seats and place the one you will use in the center of the kayak. It is very easy to make it suit your needs.

Recommendations

If you can I would highly recommend going for the Pro Package that comes with the deluxe kayak seats. They are well worth the little bit of extra money and will be a huge help for any back aches and pains during your paddling adventure.

I am not personally a big fan of the regular inflatable kayak seats offered in the first two package options as I find they offer very little support.

They might be fine for very short kayak trips but for if you plan to be out on the water for any length of time the deluxe seats are a real bonus.

If you are debating between the two different sport kayak sizes I would say that the SE 370 is a better option if you plan on kayaking with 2 people as it truly offers far more leg room than the SE 330. It also offers much more room for fishing gear and camping trips.

The SE 330 is great for solo paddling, kids, or shorter people. It can certainly be used for two, but I personally find it a little squishy when paddling the 330 tandem.

Package Options

There are now four different package options to choose from…

The Deluxe Solo Pacakge – This is great if you only want to paddle this kayak solo. It comes with one inflatable kayak seat, one kayak paddle, a foot pump and a repair kit.

The Deluxe Package – This option comes with two inflatable kayak seats, two kayak paddles, a foot pump, a carry bag and a repair kit.

The Pro Kayak Package – Included in this package is two deluxe inflatable kayak seats, two kayak paddles, a foot pump, a carry bag and a repair kit.

The QuickSail Package – This is an awesome package if you want an affordable kayak that can sail. It comes with two deluxe inflatable kayak seats, two kayak paddles, the QuickSail, a foot pump, a carry bag and a repair kit.

Final Thoughts

This kayak will not be the fastest or the best performing kayak in the water. However with the affordable price and the fact that it is comfortable, stable, super rugged and is backed by a great three year warranty, you really can’t go wrong.

You get a lot for your money and it is perfect for traveling because of its light weight. It will satisfy any beginner kayaker and work well for recreational use, families, fishing, camping or traveling.

  1. This kayak is a bestseller, some of my friends have been using it for a long time. It’s even better than advertising. I have used it several times. It’s a good choice for those new to kayaking.
