Our Brand New Fleet of Sea Kayaks

Expedition & Touring Sea Kayaks

At Tropical Sea Kayaking, we are proud and excited regarding our new Expressions, the newest addition to our fleet of sea kayaks. Perception, the manufacturer, says it best: “the Expression offers the handling and stability expected of a touring design with the performance of an expedition kayak.”

Skeg: simple & effective

These craft are nimble and stable and can easily be paddled at a cruising speed, making the longer water stretches more enjoyable and less work.  We are especially excited about the Expression’s retractable skeg, which gives this boat remarkable tracking. No need for a cumbersome pedals and a rudder system, the well-protected conditions of Golfo Dulce, our trip’s setting, do not require them.

Comfort & Control

The cockpit is cozy and equipped with Perception’s Zone DLX seating system. This system has both adjustable leg raisers and thigh braces, offering different paddlers a wide range of adjustment, comfort and control. We love the seating system’s high back-rest, they are exceptionally supportive and pair very well with our mesh-backed PFDs.

Stability & Maneuvering 

The boat’s moderate rocker, and soft chimes provide the novice paddler with forgiving stability. Yet, our guides found it to perform well in more technical maneuvers such as rolling, edging and bracing.

Our brand new fleet of sea kayaks offers ours guests the Expression 14.5 and the longer and roomier Expression 15 (the number refers to the kayak’s length in feet). Both are made in the U.S. of recyclable polyethylene plastic and feature deck rigging and reflective perimeter lines.

Join us this winter and glide one of our new state of the art boats through the tropical waters of the Golfo Dulce.
