Popular Family Canoes for Recreational Canoeing

These canoes are our most popular open boats for recreational canoeing for paddlers new to the sport. All these boats have been designed to provide stability and ease of use, rather than high performance, or specialist use.

Available in different materials to suit different needs- from the Inflatable Scout that packs down to the size of a suitcase, through to the hard wearing triple layer plastic Prospector, and the incredibly lightweight Bob Special for ease of handling.
