Pelican Canoe Review

Getting Started With Pelican Canoes

When it comes to the most popular forms of outdoor recreation, there is no better sport than canoeing and kayaking.

If you have ever experienced the thrill of being out on the water, then you know exactly what I am talking about. If you are curious about getting started, and are looking for a great canoe for the money, then you really need to consider a Pelican canoe.

You’ll also need to decide if you’re going to rent a canoe, or purchase one. And for most people the deciding factor here is how much are you really going to use your canoe?  After all, it doesn’t make sense for most people to invest $800 or more in a canoe, only to use it once or twice a year. If you’ll be using your boat that infrequently, you’d probably be better off renting one and pocketing the difference.

You also need to understand the differences between kayaks and canoes, which are quite simple. A canoe has an open hull and can seat more people than a kayak on average. A kayak on the other hand is usually smaller and has an enclosed hull. Kayaks are generally associated with having a greater amount of control and maneuverability than canoes as well.

So now that you have a basic foundation on the concepts of both of the boats, it is now time to talk about where to get one. As mentioned earlier, Pelican canoes are a great choice for people looking for their first boat. And most outdoor department stores will have a wide variety of both kayaks and canoes. You will need to first do a little research on which brands offer the most quality.

Many professionals in the sport agree that pelican canoes are one of the best brands for a beginner to start off with. They simply have so many models to choose from to meet your needs. There are about five different models of pelican canoes that are meant to cater to the needs of different customers. There is a boat for outdoor recreation activities such as fishing and there is also a pelican canoe made to fit more people for those interested in taking the whole family along.

The next aspect of this whole process that needs special attention is pricing. The prices of Pelican canoes can really vary depending on the model and store. The more innovation and features that have been put into the canoe, the more expensive it will most likely be. Each store will also have its own set of prices, so it is always a good idea to shop around for the best deal.
