The Expedition 1 sit-in sea kayak fits within in the speed/performance range of the Bay Sports family of touring kayaks.
At 17cm longer and 1cm narrower than its younger sibling the Expedition Zero, it is a faster and more streamlined design built for effortless glide, distance paddling and speed.
Larger, taller roomier cockpit makes it an ideal kayak for people up to 6'3"height, or with long legs.
Comfort knee braces come pre-installed, for extra comfort and to alleviate pressure on your lower back.
The aqua-dynamic shape of this kayak is the basis for its speed and stability, and paired with our premium foot-controlled rudder system, it makes for easy manoeuvrability even with cross winds or stronger ocean currents.
With enough storage capacity for a day or two's worth of gear, this kayak is great for weekend getaways and exploring open bodies of water with ease.
Design & Construction
- Designed by renowned Swedish kayak designer Björn Thomasson, the V-shaped hull with hard chine and increased rocker, easily cuts through water effortlessly, whilst making for an excellent ocean going kayak.
- This also gives the the Expedition 1 excellent tracking properties (ability to paddle in a straight line).
- It's made with our signature 3-Layer foam core, sandwiched between high-grade UV stabilised HDPE, make this kayak lighter and stronger than regular polyethylene construction alone.
- The build quality is the best in class, with no traces of air bubbles inside the UV stabilised plastic walls, meaning your kayak is superior in durability and won't crack like brittle plastic kayaks prone to air bubbles, due to poor quality control.
- Every single Expedition kayak is tested to ensure 3.5mm thickness, drop tested to ensure perfect plastic bond, balance tested for optimal stability, and water tested to ensure perfect seals.

"I run a sea kayaking business in Melbourne so I was keen to purchase an Expedition 1 single kayak and try it out. I have had it for 4 months and so far so good. It has good speed, rudder controls are great (foot pedals are fixed but pivot to turn left and right). Storage is good for overnight but perhaps not huge space if you go for more than 3 days. I am 6 foot 3 so that is probably the max height or leg length for this kayak. Service is great."
