Seascape Expedition Tandem by Northwest Kayaks
The Seascape Expeditions in our fleet have important customizations that bring their retail cost up to $4800. So buying a well-maintained used double kayak in beautiful condition from Sea Quest during our autumn/winter kayak sale for $2999 is truly a bargain! The current group of Seascape Expeditions now available have been in service for a total of ten months on carefully supervised guided tours – never rentals! A newer group of tandems becomes available next spring/summer for the usual price of $3499. Our Seascape Expeditions are available in a variety of deck colors including oyster white, Aztec yellow, Caribbean green, and glacier blue. You can also order a new kayak from us in any custom color combination you like for $4499.
All of our kayaks still possess a very nice finish on the topsides and look great! All hulls are oyster white and feature black trim (as shown in the photos). Our tandem kayaks include expensive upgraded features such as fiberglass bulkheads that require zero maintenance while providing greater hull strength and more reliability than other bulkhead types. We also outfit with comfortable custom back-bands that aid stability in rough water versus the rigid stock backrests.

The Seascape Expedition double kayak features a large cargo capacity and a long, graceful waterline. The speedy design makes it ideal for either extended trips with full loads or short day paddles. The hull features a modified-V bottom with soft chines, the same design that is used in today’s highest performance solo kayaks. This hull shape allows the Seascape Expedition to handle just about any water conditions from open ocean, outer coast, calm inland lakes, to Class 2 rivers. They are one of the few tandems that can still move fast and remain highly maneuverable in rough waters as they can slice through and over waves instead of bogging down.

The Seascape design family includes three fundamental models: the Seascape II, Seascape Expedition, and Seascape .5 (“Point 5”). The various Seascapes are the favorite of tour companies and outdoor programs throughout the world thanks to their excellent performance, quality workmanship, and durability. Like most top-quality kayaks of the modern era, all Seascapes have watertight compartments in the bow and stern separated from the main hold by bulkheads. This provides convenient storage for your gear, but more importantly, it ensures vital buoyancy in an emergency.
For those seeking the greatest safety level available, you should know that the Expedition model features more than just the standard bow and stern compartments. There is also a high volume airtight compartment in the center of the boat that doubles the buoyancy found in most tandem designs. A center hatch provides easy access to this completely separate bulk-headed compartment. Besides greatly improving flotation safety, this huge storage area protects your gear from getting wet, and provides much greater rigidity and strength to the hull. The most responsible kayaking outfitter companies always choose the Expedition model if they paddle on anything but the calmest lakes. Here at Sea Quest we feel our guests deserve the highest level of safety and convenience possible, so we only use Seascape Expeditions, even if it costs us a larger investment in equipment.
Although we like all of the Seascape models, we believe that each model has its own particular niche for differing water conditions. Which is right for you? Do you paddle paddle primarily in cold water? If so, you should opt for the added safety of the Seascape Expedition with its extra bulkheads and flotation. With proper practice, capsized kayakers using the Expedition can rescue themselves quickly, even in very rough water, thereby reducing exposure to hypothermia. If you paddle only in warm waters with little risk of hypothermia, then the Seascape II or Seascape .5 may suffice. On a related note, we thoroughly tested the Seascape .5 for a full year and determined that it is too short for use on open marine waters or other bodies that are prone to choppy wave conditions. We recommend the “Point 5” only for paddling on small lakes with warm water where it works extremely well as a speedy and stable substitute for the traditional canoe.
Seascape Expedition kayaks cost almost $4800 when new so our prices for lightly used kayaks are a great deal! For another $199 we can add a set of Werner paddles, Extrasport life jackets, and Snap Dragon spray skirts for two persons. See our Used Kayaking Equipment for Sale page for more details. The total package is about half of the retail cost when new. Although the kayaks are not new, they still possess a lifetime of usefulness. Remember, our Seascape kayaks are always used under careful supervision by our guides, are never rented, and are never abused or damaged. They are in good paddling condition!
