We tend to 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. Plus new this season we are stocking Jobe Paddle Boards and accessories.You’ll be able to come and get great advice (if you want it) on the best craft for you. Or give us a call if you’d like to check on exactly what stock is in.

You’ll also find a great range of Palm buoyancy aids, as well as Baltic 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.
