Canoe package

We have one type of Canoe. Wenonah Spirit II is an all around boat that will work for touring trips or on basic whitewater. 16 feet 9 inches. 69 lbs. Our canoes can be rented for use on flatwater or moving water up to class I.

Canoes can normally hold three adults; however there are only two actual seats.

Canoe packages come with three life jackets and three paddles. Paddles are single bladed, and have a T grip on the end of the handle.
Sizing for paddle length is done by placing it under the chin of the renter: from the ground to their chin is an approximate guess for the correct size.

Life Jackets Life jackets or Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs) are worn by people participating in water related activities such as rafting, canoeing and kayaking. A life jacket is meant to provide flotation to a person in the event they lose contact with their boat and are swimming.

Type 3 jackets are used for canoeing and kayaking. The jackets vary in fit and shape; however they offer the same amount of flotation. Size y, s/m, m/l, l/xl

Life jackets should fit comfortably and not hinder movement. These jackets include a zipper, as well as nylon straps to tighten them. Remember that a jacket does no good if it’s not worn and fastened properly.

Canoe Carrier System

This system includes four foam pads to protect the top of the vehicle, webbing with cam straps, and two pieces of webbing with hooks for the front and the rear of the canoe.

Caution: Although ORC staff is happy to show patrons how to use this tie-down system, it is ultimately the renters/drivers responsibility to attach the canoe to the vehicle and make sure that it is done safely (they will have to put the canoe back on the vehicle for the return trip). Not all vehicles can safely carry a canoe for long distances. A roof rack system that is able to handle heavy loads is recommended to transport a canoe over long distances.
