The type of Canadian Canoe we use are mainly “Old Town” Canadian canoes that are superb for mixed ability and experienced canoeing groups. Old Town Canoes are lightweight open boats that are large enough to carry all the equipment you’ll need on your adventure holiday or team building event.
Kayaks – “sit-on-top” and closed cockpit
Our kayak fleet is made up with a mixture of sit-on-top kayaks and closed cockpit styles. Sit-on-tops are ideal for beginners with little experience. These are very stable on the water and if the paddler should capsize there is no cockpit to hold them under the water. Closed cockpit style kayaks are great for paddlers with a bit more experience.
Not sure whether to hire a canoe or kayak? Simply give us a call and we will chat through what will be best for you and your group.
