Designed for rough water and covering distances, the Explorer is our main expedition kayak and suits the medium/large sized paddler.
Faster than the Romany family, maneuverable and direction stable. It has a large carrying capacity and has been used on a one-month expedition to Antarctica carrying all supplies with no support.
The Explorer is fitted with the High performance glass seat, unless otherwise requested. The kayak has a low rear deck for easy rolling, a keyhole cockpit that gives excellent grip, control and allows quick exit if need be. The sloping bulkhead behind the seat allows the kayak to be emptied by lifting only the bow, no x-rescue is necessary.
The Explorer HV is designed to fit the larger paddler. The volume in the cockpit has been increased by adding 1.5" (3,8 cm) of extra height between top of the seat and underside of the deck. Also, a raised area either side of the cockpit has been added to facilitate more leg room. The hull has not been altered.
The standard kayaks are made of fibre glass and are constructed from chop strand matt, woven cloth and polyester resin. We use a quality control mat and not a chop strand gun
Nigel Dennis Kayaks (NDK) was formed with the design of the Romany, since then a large range of kayaks have been designed and made in Anglesey, North Wales UK.
Blue Dog Kayaking is an NDK Expedition center and the official Dealer for the West Coast of Canada. NDK kayaks are the first choice of our instructor team; we know how important choosing the right kayak is so we have kayaks available to try before you buy.
