A canoe is a narrow boat, propelled by one or more people using paddles. Canoeing can be anything from a leisurely means of exploring the inland waterways to a full blooded Olympic sport combining stamina, and skill, full of excitement.

Canoeing is a very popular pastime, especially with the young, as it is the least expensive way of taking to the water, and is more easily supervised when instructing beginners. Canoes are also popular because of ease of storing and transporting.

For the person who takes to the water for the pure fun of being on the water or to explore our waterways, rivers, canals and close to shore sea are the venues. Specialized canoeing disciplines need specialized types of water.

Although canoeing looks easy, tuition should always be sought by a beginner, and this must be given by a qualified instructor. The ability to swim and feel confident in the water are a priority before attempting canoeing.
