Canoe Adventures

"Wherever there is a channel for water, there is a road for the canoe."   - Henry David Thoreau

There are times when a solo paddle, with no others around is what you need to refresh the mind and body. And yet, other times we need to meet up with like minded paddlers to share the moments.

Let's Go paddling! Paddling the rivers, streams, lakes and oceans can be a relaxing trip or a thrilling ride. Like any outdoor adventure, a great time can be had with some planning and luck. The planning keeps you safe and the luck provides the extrasensory input that takes a normal day and turns it into something special. These are also the times that require us to protect the environment for others to enjoy.

Resources by state

We have the state resources broken out into four regions; West, Central, North and South. Within each region are links to information within each state. We are sure that the list will be expanding.

Paddling Destinations

A new resource here at Canoe Adventures is Paddling Destination links. Google Earth Push pins and videos will be posted to get there and let you see what things look like.

Links to Gear

We can plan all we want, but at some point you just need to have the right stuff. Here is a list of sites, suppliers and shops that can help you get the goods you need to have a successful adventure.

Links to Canoe builders, retail, and groups

It is nice to actually touch the canoe you want to buy. Even better is to take it for a paddle but not every one has those opportunities. Here is a list of place to go for your canoes.
