It’s an exhilarating feeling, paddling out into open ocean, with nothing but water between you and the horizon.

To rise to the challenge, you need the Open Ocean Kayak Package. It has the right kayak and the right accessories for you to have a confident and exciting sea kayaking experience.

The basis of this package is the AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite inflatable kayak and plus the RapidUp Sail, so you can let the sea breeze do the work for you!

See below for why the AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite inflatable kayak is ideal as a sea kayak for use in open ocean.

Here is why the AdvancedFrame Expedition Elite Inflatable Kayak is ideal as a sea kayak for use in open ocean:

  • Stable – In open ocean, the water is moving a lot more than in flat water and it moves your kayak around under you. If you are in a very narrow kayak, it can take a lot of concentration, core strength and energy just to prevent capsizing. For most people, this just isn’t a lot of fun! A stable kayak will allow you to sit back and relax from time to time, and to concentrate on your paddle stroke, rather than on staying upright.
  • Dry – The Expedition Elite is an enclosed sit-in kayak, rather than an exposed sit-on-top kayak. The cockpit is narrow with inflatable coaming, so you get quite a bit of protection from splash. If you want even more protection, you can attach the skirt to the coaming to keep the water out and the warmth in. This gives you the freedom to go kayaking even in choppy or very cold water.
  • Fast and straight – If you are the ambitious type and want to cover long distances, the Expedition Elite is fast and tracks very straight.
  • Cuts through chop – The patented AdvancedFrame bow and stern cut through chop easily.
  • Comfortable – Often when you are sea kayaking, you are on the water for long stretches without a break on dry land to stretch your legs. It is therefore SUPER important that you are comfortable. The Expedition Elite has an adjustable foot rest and a high back seat with adjustable lumbar support – magic for your back!
  • Gear – There is heaps of deck space, heaps of D-rings and bungee lacing and a huge weight capacity, so if you are thinking of gearing up for a multi-day expedition, load ‘em up!
  • Attachments – The D-rings and bungee on the decks allow you to attach various items for safety (eg EPIRB, PLB), navigation (eg smart phone) , or assisted paddling (eg the awesome RapidUp Sail).

And these hand-picked accessories will make your ocean experience even better:

  • RapidUp Sail – Take advantage of the sea breeze with the RapidUp sail.
  • Touring Spray Skirt – Keep the waves out and the warmth in with this comfortable and effective spray skirt
  • Packlite Roll Top Dry Bag Set – This ultra-lightweight bag set will keep your gear safe and dry.
  • Axis 230 Fibreglass Paddle – This paddle is very light and warm to hold, which is ideal for paddling in a potentially cold ocean.
  • Double Action Hand Pump with Gauge – this pump offer quick inflation and helps you get the kayak to the right pressure so you get more time on the water and the best performance from your kayak.

Are you worried about buying sight unseen?

It’s a big purchase when you don’t really know what you are getting, isn’t it?

To make this a no-brainer for you, I want you to try out the kayak or SUP, on the water.

That’s right – I want you to actually take it for a paddle.

If you don’t like it, you can send it back for a FULL REFUND.

Most retailers will let you return a product, but it has to be in new condition – what’s the point of that? You need to be able to paddle the thing before you really know if it is right for you!

So order the kayak or SUP, take it out for a paddle and then decide if you want to keep it. You’ve got a full 30 days from delivery to make that decision, so plenty of time to do a test paddle.


Yes, that’s right, you get free shipping on this product, no matter where you live in Australia.

We use a range of couriers for shipping including Star Track Express, Couriers Please or Fastway.

They often want a signature on delivery, so have a think about whether someone will be at home (and you know Murphy’s law – if you pop out for 5 minutes, that’s when they will come!).

If it’s safe, the best option is to give Authority to Leave (ATL), which means the courier can leave it at your front door (or wherever you specify).

12-Month Manufacturer’s Warranty

Advanced Elements are pretty serious about quality.

They offer a 12 month warranty on all their products, and I can tell you with confidence that they are great about it. Although I don’t get many warranty claims, I have never had any issues getting help, parts or replacements from Advanced Elements.
