Tips for Planning a Canoeing Trip

If you’ve been thinking that a canoeing trip sounds like a lot of fun, we’ve put together a few tips that will make planning your trip a breeze.

  • Consider Renting - Renting a canoe will save you time and effort. You won’t have to bring your canoe from home or store it afterwards.

  • Work with a group - Finding a tour group or teen center that offers lessons will allow you to plan a trip with others. Not only will this reduce your stress but it will make your trip safer.

  • Dress for Success - Dress appropriately for your trip. If you have any questions about what you should wear, ask your instructor. In general you want lightweight clothing that won’t weigh you down if you should happen to fall in.

  • Pack for Safety - Make sure you bring all needed safety equipment. While you don’t want to be bogged down, this isn’t something you want to leave behind.
