Canoe Reviews

Here at The Kayaking Journal, we’ve compiled a series of reviews on various canoes and canoeing accessories. These canoe reviews are subjective and admittedly unscientific.

They are based on our own experience with these products, as well as comments we’ve received from other paddlers. We’ve tried to provide a fair assessment of these products–pointing out both their good and bad points (as we’ve experienced them)–and we are not paid to promote any particular product over another.

Modern canoes come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and materials, and the boat you choose should match your needs and skill level (and of course, your pocketbook). Our advice is to shop around when considering a canoe purchase, ask other paddlers what their experiences have been, and don’t be afraid to negotiate a better price if the circumstances warrant it.

If you’d like to submit your own canoe review, or canoeing accessory, or other outdoor recreation gear, just use the “contact us” form and we’ll consider your request.
