We stock a selection of open “Hou” Canadian Canoes, Dagger Kayaks, as well as Sit-On-Tops by Islander and Wilderness Systems, and lots of great kit to go with them. You’ll be able to come and get great advice (if you want it) on the best craft for you.

You’ll also find a great range of Palm buoyancy aids for paddlers, “Baltic” buoyancy aids for boaters, as well as doggy buoyancy aids in a full range of sizes.

Or perhaps treat yourself to a beautiful Grey Owl Wooden Paddle, or incredibly useful Palm Caddy portage trolleys.

Lots more in-store, do come see us soon…
