Canadian Canoeing with Atlantic Pursuits

Canadian Canoeing is a traditional long canoe that can seat between 2 and 4 people, as per the Inuit and Canadian First Nation people used many years ago. You use a single blade paddle which you use one side only.

It is a great activity requiring a little bit of team work and learning steering skills as you paddle up Bude Canal, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

A few words from owner Sam Roberts.

“I have been in outdoor pursuits since 1970. I am one of a small team of surf kayak coaches in Great Britain. My background training comes from serving with the special forces, representing Great Britain internationally in kayaking; trained in the GB Olympic squad and took part in the Zanskar River Himalayan Expedition. As you can see, Outdoor pursuits is a way of life for me and I would like to share it with you.”
