Key Features

Patented All Drop Stitch Contruction Creates The Shape Of Traditional Canoes Patented All Drop Stitch Contruction Creates The Shape Of Traditional Canoes

The flat three-inch (8 cm) thick high-pressure (up to 10 psi/69 kPa) side and floor chambers create a narrow, rigid and extremely spacious canoe. This construction system allows us to literally reinvent the traditional canoe in a unique inflatable form and provides previously impossible benefits. Greater safety, incredible stability, and incomparable portability with no sacrifice to paddling performance. U.S. Patent 9,452,809

Double Chine System For Triple Stability And Improved Tracking Double Chine System For Triple Stability And Improved Tracking

The Travel Canoe is more stable than many traditional canoes because of the Double Chines that run the entire length of the canoe. All canoes have some form of primary and secondary stability. The Travel Canoe actually has three forms of stability. The two distinct chines along with the flat bottom contribute to stability, speed and tracking of the Travel Canoe. The first chine is formed where the drop stitch inflatable floor meets the drop stitch inflatable sidewalls. The second chine comes from the angle of the drop stitch inflatable sidewalls. This results in primary stability from the flat bottom, secondary stability from the first chine and additional stability from the second chine.

Diamond Deck Pads For More Secure Footing Diamond Deck Pads For More Secure Footing

To provide safe and secure footing when getting in and out of the Travel Canoe we have added a layer of diamond pattern anti-skid EVA foam decking. This not only makes this canoe safer to stand on (especially when fishing and casting) it adds an additional layer of protection to the floor. To secure the optional drop stitch inflatable seats while providing maximum adjustability (for one, two or three paddlers) additional d-rings have been added to hold a durable nylon strap that keeps the seat in place.

Safer Because Of Inherent Buoyancy Safer Because Of Inherent Buoyancy

Unlike traditional rigid canoes, our Travel Canoe has added buoyancy from the inflatable air chambers of the floor and sides. This means while adhering to the Travel Canoes specifications it will not sink. In addition, because the air chambers have inherent buoyancy you can load this canoe with hundreds of pounds of supplies and still paddle and maneuver easily. Best of all this inherent buoyancy makes the Travel Canoe safer in whitewater rapids (up to Class 4).

Bow And Stern Molds Combined With Rear Removable Skeg For Speed And Tracking Bow And Stern Molds Combined With Rear Removable Skeg For Speed And Tracking

The Travel Canoe features bow and stern molds that cut through the wind, water, waves and current while creating lift reducing drag and friction. The added feature of the low-profile removable rear skeg further improves speed and tracking because the skeg reduces the natural yaw of a canoe and makes forward motion far more efficient. The skeg is designed for use on open water and windy conditions. It can be removed in seconds for use on whitewater or when using the J-stoke.

Packs Into A Bag And Fits Into A Small Car Trunk Packs Into A Bag And Fits Into A Small Car Trunk

Not only is the Travel Canoe 33% lighter than rigid canoes of the same class but it also deflates and packs down to a mere 1/4 of its inflated size. This means the Travel Canoe will fit easily into the smallest car trunk for both easy storage and transport, making it readily available for use at all times.

The TC 16 is the best inflatable canoe I have seen. It packs into my 23 ft Wennebago motor home along with all the gear I need. I tested it at Flamingo in Everglades National Park after Hurricane Irma left debris and obstacles. I inflated with the manual pump, set it on a light collapsible dolly with an ice chest, 3 tackle bags, 4 rods, the pump, patch kit, 2 paddles and a foam paddling block, GPS/Hand Held Marine two way radio and big spray.

The wind was 20 mph and in those conditions, the area can be the harshest environment in the US.

I wheeled the loaded canoe 1/8 of a mile, drug it through Mangrove mud to launch and fished mangrove islands and caught Sea Trout.

The canoe handled perfectly while I sat on my knees resting my rear on the paddle block.

The seats were useless because the proper way to paddle a canoe is on your knees not on a seat. The seats do not attach well, move around and only allow for ameture paddling. Canoe is a five stars but the seats are 2 Stars. Great Canoe.

It's been a great canoe. We took it on a 12 day, 185 mile float down the Yellowstone River. It handled very well and didn't have any issues with it (very robust). The river was up higher than usual so there some nice class II and a few class III rapids to go through. The boat performed very well. The only complaint I have is the weight of the hull. Its listed as being 60 lbs on the website but mine weighs 74 lbs with the cover (without the seats or fin). 70 lbs is the limit for a normal check bag for airlines so it makes it quite expensive to travel with by air. Prior to the next trip I will see if there is any way of shedding some weight.
