*All canoe rentals come with comfortable MTI Java PFDs, paddles (your choice of carbon bent, wooden bent, or wooden straight shaft paddles), yoke pads, and tie-downs straps/foam pads for transport.


If you're tired of carrying a heavy canoe across portages and paddling a noisy, cold aluminum boat, we've got just the thing for you. The Kevlar® canoes we rent are "user friendly." They are stable, easy to paddle, fast and, best of all, LIGHTWEIGHT. Boundary Waters Canoe Tripping involves both paddling and portaging. A sleek, 42-lb Kevlar® canoe takes the strain out of paddling and the pain out of portaging. Do you have an odd number of people? Try our solo boats or our three-person, 20', three-seater that weighs only 55 lbs.

Wenonah and Northstar (by Ted Bell) make many different hull designs to custom fit paddlers' every need. We specialize in fitting you into the boat that will make your BWCAW or Quetico Canoe Camping Trip the most comfortable for you.

Rent canoes, kayaks, or SUP boards for a day or a week or longer.
