The Sea Eagle 330 and 370 inflatable fishing kayaks are tandem kayaks, which can also be used solo. They are sold complete with storage bag, a very good foot pump, and two paddles, as standard. In calm conditions they’re very practical – good tracking, easy paddling and pretty comfortable. Their high sides and high centre-of-gravity means they aren’t great in rough conditions, but all things considered, they’re durable, practical and well-made. At this price, they’re a very good buy.

If you don’t have a huge amount of storage, but you’d like to get your hands on a tandem kayak, the Sea Eagle 330 or 370 would both make a good option. Easy-to-inflate and store, these kayaks take up a lot less room than a hard-shell option, and they negate the need to load and remove the boat from the roof of your vehicle. The Sea Eagle is also versatile. You can configure the seating for both solo or tandem use, and the boat is study enough even to get three people aboard (although it’s not something to try in rough conditions!).
Paddling the Sea Eagle may take some getting used to. It has a high centre-of-gravity compared to most standard kayaks, and the whole boat flexes in waves, which you may find a little unnerving at the outset. Nevertheless, except in really windy conditions, the boat paddles well. For better handling, go with the slightly shorter 330; for more space, opt for the 370.
Pros of Sea Eagle 330 and 370 Inflatable Fishing Kayaks

- Accommodates two people comfortably
- Skegs / rudder fins offer good tracking
- Light, compact and collapsible, so easy to transport and store
- Good value for money
Cons of Sea Eagle 330 and 370 Inflatable Fishing Kayaks
- Limited on-board storage
- Flexible body can be a little unnerving in rougher conditions
- High centre-of-gravity
- Poorer performance than a hard-bodied kayak
Aside from the obvious advantages of any inflatable kayak, such as easy transport and storage, the Sea Eagle packs in some nice features. For starters, the rudder fins or ‘skegs’ allow the kayak to track surprisingly well. The Sea Eagle offers the added practicality of coming complete with foot pump, repair kit, and paddles, so you can literally unbox it, inflate and hit the water. That’s ideal if you’re buying the kayak as a gift.
The kayak doesn’t offer much storage space. The kayak has some little pockets in the back of the seats, but that’s it. These pockets could do with being much larger, and it would be beneficial to have some extra storage in the kayak itself.
My Personal Tips
The Sea Eagle kayak is better on calm days. If it’s very windy or choppy, you’d be better off in a sturdier boat. Also, we’d recommend using the rudder fins. With them, this kayak is as usable and manoeuvrable as a regular kayak. Without them, it won’t track nearly as well.
Overall, customers seem very satisfied, both with the 330 and 370 variants. The 330 gets a 4.1, while the ‘370 with Pro Package’ gets a whopping 4.3!
Enjoyable and rugged whatever your limitations, capabilities and risk tolerance.
