Our Mission

We aim to bring great, cutting edge high performance sea kayaks to wonderful people. Our kayaks and gear are personally selected and tested for performance, durability, value and aesthetics and are competitively priced. We want to fit the right boat to each individual customer so encourage trying them on and trying them out. The same is true with all our gear. We strive to differentiate ourselves from the cookie-cutter boats and gear sold by the big box stores and constantly solicit feedback and direction from our team experts as well as paddlers near and far.

Our Place

Our new boats are on the wall of both front and back rooms. ALL are available to demo on request or sale off the wall. We are also a showroom for the newest in hard core technologies, such as Tuiliqs, an Inuit garment over 1,000 years old but being now made in up to date environmentally sensitive fabrics, which wear well, are priced right and for the most part made to order.

The Chart Room: We show slightly used boats for sale back here. We also encourage the room as a place to come, hang out, use the internet, plan trips (we have maps from all of our adventures available to use in house, along with our own knowledge) and for groups that need space to learn. We do not charge for the use of the Chart Room provided the use relates to adventure and/or outdoor water sport.
