The Advanced Elements Expedition Elite Sea Kayak is an inflatable model that’s great for touring coastal environments and is ideal for day or weekend trips. As a classic touring kayak, this model might compromise performance, but it delivers on portability.

The Expedition is one of Advanced Element’s most ambitious products as they have managed to pull off an inflatable sea kayak that can compete with the more robust hardshell options.

Once adjusted correctly and Expedition is one of the most comfortable sea kayaks on the market. This inflatable kayak is a great option for kayakers who want to use their sea kayak in different areas as it can be deflated for more compact transportation.

Although the Expedition has a lot of cargo space, it can be slightly cramped in the cockpit for larger kayakers, and anybody taller than 6 feet might want to consider another option. Also, the tracking on this kayak tends to get worse in more strenuous conditions such as currents and waves as it is an inflatable, after all, making the Expedition best suited for flatwater lakes and rivers.

The Advanced Elements Expedition is ideal for travelers and kayakers who want a portable kayak that can also support a high capacity for equipment and gear.
