Solo canoe rental is not as popular as a tandem or 3 person canoe as typically most people opt for solo kayak rentals instead.

Tandem Canoe Rentals Near Me

This is the most popular Canoe rental as groups paddle together to explore the rivers and lakes for short trips or multi-day excursions. Longer canoes can be set up as tandem, 3 person or even 4 person by arranging the seating style.
Canoes are typically the preferred watercraft for longer distance paddles that require overnight camping as they have more space for gear storage and packs.
