The Expedition 2 sit-inis the fastest and ultimate touring kayak of the Bay Sports family of sea kayaks.
It was built for multi-day adventures, speed and capable of long distance paddling.
Compared to it's younger sibling the Expedition 1, it adds an extra 13 cm of length + an extra watertight storage compartment conveniently located directly in front of the cockpit, making this sea kayak the ultimate expedition tourer for weekend getaways and exploring.
Design & Construction
Designed by renowned Swedish kayak designer Björn Thomasson, the Expedition 2 is the longer, faster brother to the Expedition 1, made for adventures great and far.
An extra 13cm of length and 4cm of width gives the Expedition 2 it's position as a true expedition kayak.
It is made with our signature 3-Layer foam core, sandwiched between high-grade UV16 stabilised HDPE, make this kayak lighter and stronger than regular polyethylene construction alone.
A V-shaped hull with hard chine, and little rocker, easily cuts through water whilst deep grooved hull lines provide for excellent tracking.
The streamlined shape of this kayak is the basis for its speed and steadiness, and with our premium foot-controlled rudder system, makes for easy manoeuvrability even with cross winds or stronger ocean currents.
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. So rest assured your kayak will last for years to come.

Had to modify the seat to make it comfortable- very poor back support and required an aftermarket back support from elsewhere to make it paddle comfortably long distance.
They need a better seat solution. Apart from that, the boat is great.
As a beginner, I wanted something that could take me from my wobbly beginnings to daily dawn paddles on Sydney Harbour and (eventually) to the ocean. I love my kayak, and the service from Bay Sports was excellent from start to finish. A whole new world has opened up for me. I would recommend a trolley and I splashed out on a second hand carbon fibre paddle, though the two-piece standard paddle is fine. No complaints.
Baysports - helpful and trustworthy service. Prompt delivery. The Expedition 2 is very good value for money. I'm 6ft 3in and I fit in the kayak fine. Its got a comfortably sized cockpit, plenty of leg room and ample very easy adjustment of the foot pegs. Its stable and speedy. Comes with a good quality adjustable 2 piece paddle. At 29kg it isn't light but pretty good for a plastic. You absolutely won't get a new, lighter kayak for the price. Its the least expensive plastic of its type I could find on the market by a good margin but the build does not seem to be cheap. I'm a novice with this size sit-in but as far as I can see, its got all the features of much more expensive kayaks and better than many. I've kayaked with another guy who has had an Expedition zero for years and his only complaint was it was too small for him - should've bought a bigger one... The plastic is quite soft - it scratches easily - just be careful with it. I've paddled it on still water and off shore in light seas. It's quick and goes where you point it current and wind permitting!
Having used it for a few months now my main feedback is minor. I think the kayak could be trimmed an inch or so (55cm width) for greater consistent speed and reduced weight as per the two other Expedition boats you have. Also a care guide/manual would of been handy as a beginner - the underside front hull (bow) was gorged initially not knowing how easy these things are to chip/scratch on sandy bays.
