I bought the Explorer K2 as and extra kayak for the grand kids or company and to take along in the car or truck when we are traveling. I is very easy to inflate and holds air very well. I have kept mine inflated in a building for almost four months and has only deflated slightly. I keep it hanging above my regular kayaks on a tarp suspended between some rafters. Very easy to store and transport. It seems to be very sturdy and and is pretty easy to paddle. Tracks pretty well with the included skeg on. Wish the paddles were a little longer, but they get the job done. Great price for a fun little boat.
I am a novice, who recently bought this fun inflatable kayak. It's totally fulfilled my need for something I can handle alone, fit in my trunk, and also share with my sister. I wanted to see if I truly enjoy the sport before I invest in something more fancy which will require more stuff (roof rack, wetsuit, etc.). So far, I've had a ball! I love kayaking, but already dread the cold winter months, and would love winning a more sea-worthy, sit-in kayak.
This is a good beginner kayak for those who kayak frequently enough to want to their own kayak (and avoid rental fees), but infrequently enough to purchase a more expensive kayak.
I bought this kayak for $100, but as others said, it can be bought for a lower price - I've seen the $69 on Amazon as recently as July 2019.
We've taken this out a few times and are impressed with quality for price. The kayak handles easily enough and we've had no issues thus far. Inflation is made easier with a battery-powered pump ($10 extra) and takes around 15-20 minutes to set up. We found the kayak material sturdy, even when we had accidentally dragged it over branches in the water.
Overall, great beginner kayak if you want to try this out as a hobby.
I was able to find this on Amazon for only $69! That price alone would make it almost worth after my first three hour trip since to rent a kayak by me is $20 to $30 an hour. I love how fast and easy it is to fill up with the foot pump that comes with it, it takes me no more than ten minutes to get out into the water. Then it is easily able to be deflated and stored in the trunk of my Hyundai Elantra. I have gone out on a calm Stumpy lake and then the Elizabeth River with larger boats creating a little bit of wake and it has been easy to handle. The only thing that is a little uncomfortable is the lack of support in the front seat.
First inflatable kayak. Solid dont feel exposed of as if on raft. Good quality and build.
I purchased the intex explorer K2 inflatable Kayak it came with the air pump, 2 paddles and 2 inflatable seats and a patch kit, it is very easy to set up, seems to be very durable and strong, it is comfortable but I think a sit on top kayak is more comfortable then a sit in one.
it is very to deflate and put into the bag that it comes in. It is heavy feeling in the water but is easy to maneuver I think it looks more like a canoe then a kayak. I would recommend this for someone who wants to just do calm water such as a lake.
