Freedom to Explore
Solo canoeing allows to you to explore and adventure on your own terms and pace. You make all the decisions without needing to consult. Sometimes you can not find a partner to canoe with or you prefer the solace of paddling on your own. It’s a beautiful connection with the water.
Taking a solo course will make a better all around paddler as you are now the stern & bow position of a regular tandem canoe team. All skills learned solo translate into tandem canoeing.
We have a range of canoes available for you to try. Most are in the 16′ range and we do have some dedicated solo tripping canoes that are around 14′.
