The Explorer is an award-winning expedition style design for rough water and for covering distances as a fast, maneuverable, and directionally stable kayak.
Designed for rough water and covering distances, the Explorer is our main expedition kayak and suits the medium sized paddler. The kayak is faster than the Romany family, maneuverable and directionally stable. It has a large carrying capacity and has been used on a one-month expedition to Antarctica carrying all supplies with no support.
The Explorer is fitted with the high performance glass seat, unless otherwise requested. The kayak has a low rear deck for easy rolling, a keyhole cockpit that gives excellent grip, control and allows quick exit if need be. The sloping bulkhead behind the seat allows the kayak to be emptied by lifting only the bow, no x-rescue is necessary. The Explorer is also available in high volume (HV).
