River Running and Creek Boats

Kayaks for Steep Creeking and White Water Rivers

White water and river running kayaks have evolved over the years from wood/canvas and fibreglass boats, to the high performance, modern plastic boats that are being used to run the tallest waterfalls, hardest rapids and the most technical white-water anywhere in the world. Apart from the materials these modern kayaks are manufactured from, the overall design/shape and features have greatly increased the safety aspect of these boats. Allowing them to perform better on the water, avoid hazards and protect the paddler in rescue or high risk situations.

Of course, not every aspiring white-water paddler wants to 'push the limits' and run serious whiter. In fact most ww paddlers want to safely run easier grades of white water in safety and have fun. So novices to the sport, taking their first stokes on moving water, right through to expedition paddlers, we have boats to suit everyone. The boats listed below are all forgiving, have up-to-date safety features and been designed specifically for running rapids in comfort and style.
