Canoe Reviews - Results

Staying afloat is important in any boat. Because of the thin hull size of a canoe, they can be prone to tip. Our reviews have shown that only an experience canoe rider should use canoes specifically set up for speed. During our testing, we have found canoes that are well rounded to generally cost less and offer a great deal of reliability. A good seat is also important in a canoe, as it will help you stabilize yourself when rowing. We hope canoe-reviews.com has sent you paddling in the right direction of the canoe you best see fit for your needs.
