About this model: 

A fast and stable adventure kayak that will fit all your gear. Designed for serious exploring and touring. The 58 cm-wide beam makes this model study and predictable on the water. It's 5.2m-long waterline means the Abel Explorer will maintain speed and efficiency through the water when paddling medium to long distances. 

Fitted with a rudder so you can stay on-track or turn easily. Rudder-style: retractable, so you can tuck it up when launching/landing; deployed with a pull-cord beside the paddler's waist. 

About the name:
Abel Tasman was one of Australia's most famous maritime explorers, and this boat is named after him. It’s also an able boat, whether Abel by name, or able by nature.


- A full-length sea kayak with good speed and hull stability,

- Two large storage compartments and an additional day hatch, 

- A large cockpit for easy entry/exit,

- Adjustable thigh braces, allowing you to fit the kayak to your body perfectly,

- Adjustable seat for good lumbar support, 

- Foot-operated retractable steering rudder,

- Deck lines, allowing the paddler to grab on easily and safely in the unlikely event of a capsize. 

- Bungee deck rigging for stowing accessories, 

- Built-in safety floatation thanks to the bulkheads, which create floatation chambers. 

Benefits of plastic kayaks:

- Offer a cost saving for paddlers as they are less expensive than a composite (fibreglass/Kevlar/carbon) boat,

- Are extremely durable and forgiving if/when they strike a rock (or get dropped in a parking lot while loading/unloading).


If you have come on the Sydney Harbour Kayaks FREE Learn to Kayak Lesson and FREE Kayak Safety Lesson, then you might have used a Safari H2O kayak already. We use the Coorong, Breakwater and Abel Explorer, as well as the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 145 and 165 models on our group lessons.
