Michicraft aluminum canoes have long been the staple in the canoe rental industry. These canoes are 17′ in length, and a 36″ beam, making it one of the most stable canoes on the market. The Michicraft canoe has a capacity of approx. 620 lbs. There are seats for 2 persons, however there is room for up to two small children in the center.

Old Town

Old Town Discovery Canoes have become the number one choice for canoe rentals over the past decade. We feature the Discovery 158, which is a polyethylene 3-layer canoe. 15’8″ in length, 35″ at the beam, and has roto-molded seat. There are seats for two, and it is not recommended to have a middle rider. The capacity is approx 450 lbs. We also carry a few Old Town Discovery Canoes that are 16’9″ to accommodate heavier paddlers or that have more than two people in the canoe.
