Canoe Paddles

Single bladed paddles for canoeing, open boating and rafting.

Don’t be caught up the creek without one! Canoe paddles all have a T-grip at one end and single blade at the other, connected by a shaft in the middle. Constructed from different materials to suit every budget and paddling style.


Alloy and plastic paddles are the least expensive, most durable but are generally heavier, cold to hold and not the nicest ‘feel’ when being pulled through the water. Wooden paddles are the most popular, have a nice feel and are mid-priced and warm to hold. Composite paddles are the most expensive but also the highest performing and mainly used on white-water rivers.


Generally speaking shorter, wider blades are considered general purpose/all-round paddles for all water conditions, and the longer, thinner shaped blades are for deep water environments such as lakes or sea lochs. All canoe paddles are available in different lengths; the floor to the paddlers shoulder when stood up is a good starting point if you are unsure which size to purchase.
