*A special note about renting KEVLAR Canoes

  • Catamaran Canoe loaded with a family and gear leaving the landing.

    Rent a Catamaran Canoe for family canoe trips with young children.

    Kevlar Canoes are not intended to touch rocks.

  • These canoes are made of a lightweight kevlar material that is designed for speed in the water and convenience on the portages.
  • Special care is required of these canoes:
    • Load and unload gear into and out of the canoe ONLY while the canoe is floating in the water.
    • These are a “wet foot” canoes. Meaning that you will have to get your feet wet when arriving at a portage or campsite, etc.
    • Remove them completely from the water at night and tie them to a tree while in camp. They are lightweight and have blown away on some careless customers in the past. Let this not be you.
    • Do Not run the bow or stern up onto land. Instead, pull in parallel to the shoreline and step out easily without rubbing the canoe hull on the rocks.
  • They are damaged much easier than a royalex or an aluminum canoe because of their weight and material.
  • It will be your responsibility to ensure that your canoe is returned to us in the shape that we sent it out with you in.
  • Minor nicks and scrapes are natural and unavoidable, but dents, gouges, and holes are avoidable and therefore, you will be held responsible for them upon your return.
  • Kevlar canoes are becoming more and more popular in the BWCAW and Quetico and many people are using them and LOVING them. There are special precautions involved with canoeing in a kevlar canoe. We want you to enjoy the convenience of a kevlar canoe, but we also want you to understand the care that they require. They aren’t your father’s aluminum Grumman canoe. As long as you keep this in mind, you won’t have any problems.
