About Us - Manchester canoes

The Leading Supplier of Canoes & Kayaks North West UK


Manchester Canoes is an exciting toy cupboard for kids and grown up kids alike. Stocking a comprehensive range of canoes, kayaks, sit on tops and kit for recreational paddling through to expedition sea kayaks and extreme white water paddling. Manchester Canoes prides itself on its service and quality of product. You can expect the same level of service if you’re the world’s most novice recreational paddler right through to those who are convinced they can walk on water. Acorns and Oak Trees spring to mind. The novice paddler once bitten by the sport rapidly improves and grows into competent and expert paddlers. In truth the novice paddler should get the very best service, he or she has most to gain from paddling.


The expert paddler visiting Manchester Canoes should bring doughnuts for the staff and a credit card to cover the purchase whilst exchanging tales of epic paddles.
