Choosing the right boat
We purchased a Wenonah Spirit II (Kevlar Ultra-Lite) from Paddle Portage Canoes and it is a truly magnificent canoe. Light enough to lift on my own, but large enough to fit the whole family (and gear) - it is our key to gaining access to remote camps on the Murray River.
I have recently bought a heap of gear both in store and over the phone and had it delivered. Travis and Sarah are wonderful people who genuinely care about their customers and their needs. I am looking forward to joining them for some skills sessions in the Spring.
Picked up my Wenonah 16' Prospector today from Paddle & Portage Canoes/Valley Outdoors. Fantastic service. Dan provided an invaluable 1.5 hours of instruction in basic canoe strokes, balancing and a few other gems of information- highly recommended.
I highly recommend Paddle and Portage Canoes! My friends and I hired canoes from Travis to do some canoe camping at Tallowa Dam. The canoes were first class, and Travis' service and knowledge are second to none. 10/10.
If you're looking top buy or rent a proper canoe with woven seats and timber paddles, go here!
Just had to say what an absolute delight it was dealing with Travis the owner of this company. He went out of his way to guide me in the right direction of sourcing a new paddle. For me what made the difference was the follow up, sound advice and friendly approach to how he runs his business. Give this guy a go!
