Welcome to Canoe Country Outfitters

We are a family-owned kayak, canoe, and paddleboard shop serving the St. Petersburg and greater Tampa Bay area since 1986. We are centrally located on 54th Ave N and 64th Way in St. Petersburg, and offer a huge selection of items; anything from kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddleboards (SUP), and Gheenoes, to motors, trailers, paddles, PFDs, Engel coolers, rod holders, rudders, and various other outfitting needs for fishing and paddling alike.

​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.

Do canoes better suit your interest?

We carry a wide variety of kayaks, including: touring, recreational, and fishing, from a multitude of companies, such as Current Designs, Dagger, Hurricane Aquasports, Ocean Kayak, Old Town, Perception Kayaks, and Wilderness Systems; we are the exclusive Wilderness Systems dealer for Pinellas County. Whether you have paddled for 20 years, or have never set foot in the water, we can direct you to the next kayak of your fancy. Filling your needs from the kayak first, while allowing for all the luxuries you would like to add as well.


Are you looking for kayaks or kayak accessories?

We carry a full line of boards from TAHE SUP. TAHE is a brand born from the union of BIC Sport and Tahe Outdoors, two legendary companies famous for decades of commitment to water sports. With this merger, BIC Sport's manufacturing expertise and focus on family fun is now combined with Tahe Outdoor's dedication to exploration and craftsmanship. 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 Highsider, can go up to 15mph with a 9.9hp on the back! We stock the two Highsider (13' and 15') models regularly, with the ability to special order any bigger model you may want (such as the 15'6 Classic, 16' Super, and Low Tide 25), customized exactly to your specifications. We work closely with both Gheenoe and Custom Gheenoe to offer the exact skiff of your desires.
