Filling your needs from the kayak first, while allowing for all the luxuries you would like to add as well.

Do canoes better suit your interest? We carry a selection of canoes from Mad River Canoe, Old Town Canoe, and Wenonah Canoe. Whether you are looking for a plastic family boat or an ultralight Kevlar or Carbon Fiber canoe, we have you covered and the knowledge to properly fit you and your needs.

Have an interest in the emerging paddle board phenomenon? We carry a full line of boards from Bic SUP. They have along heritage in the wind-surfing industry, and have converted all that knowledge and experience to their stand-up paddle board business, offering some of the most durable, affordable, and versatile stand-up paddle boards on the market. Even if you have never stood on a board before, stop by the shop and our well-informed staff will find the perfect fit for both your needs and your budget.

We cannot forget the micro-skiff that has ruled the flats for over 40 years now. We are talking about Gheenoe! Made in Titusville, Florida, they rule the flats with an alternative to both the standard canoe, and the flats skiff. The fiberglass hulls are designed to plane, and when powered properly, absolutely fly across the water. One of their smaller models, the 15’4 High Sider, can go up to 15mph with a 9.9hp on the back! We stock the two High-Sider models regularly, with the ability to special order any bigger model you may want (such as the 15’6 Classic, 16’ Super, and Lowtide 25), customized exactly to your specifications. We work closely with both Gheenoe and Custom Gheenoe to offer the exact skiff of your desires.
