Open Canadian Canoes

Open canoes benefit from a large amount of space which is ideal for carrying the whole family or lots of gear. They are best suited to sheltered inland waters like rivers, lakes & canals. However, they can be used on the see in flat calm conditions and some enthusiasts can even found trying to tackle whitewater.

The open canoe is a remarkably versatile craft and can open the door to a number of exciting adventures. Load it up with the family and a picnic for a gentle float down your local river or pack the camping kit and head off for a weekend’s canoe camping adventure.

We stock the most popular open canadian canoes available in the UK and can supply specialist canoes to order quickly.
