Is It a Canoe or a Kayak?

Yes! It’s sort of both. The NuCanoe can be considered a sort of hybrid between a canoe and a kayak.

The typical canoe can usually seat multiple passengers and is generally rather large and tipsy. Whereas a kayak generally only seats one person and offers better stability and maneuvering than a canoe.

The NuCanoe is designed for 1-3 people (possibly 4 with smaller children). It’s not as bulky as a typical canoe, giving it greater stability and maneuverability. The seating is designed a little lower than typical canoe seating, and the NuCanoe rests just above the water the way a kayak might.

Another difference between the NuCanoe and other canoes and kayaks is its uncanny versatility. The NuCanoe can be used for about anything: fishing, hunting, paddling, rowing, diving, and more. Passengers can choose to row the boat, as done in many canoes. Or they can choose to paddle the boat, the way that kayakers do.

The NuCanoe is also designed to go just about anywhere. It functions well on lakes, rivers (up to Class II rapids), and the ocean.
