Otter Canoes, Port Rowan

We build traditional ribbed cedar canoes (the direct descendant of the Indian birch bark canoe). We use only the best northern white cedar with no sapwood or western red cedar.

No modern material can rival white cedar for canoe crafting.

Northern white cedar is light weight, and offers buoyancy and flexibility that gives a unique paddling experience and beauty unequaled by anything else.

A True Pleasure Craft

Our custom crafted canoes are very responsive and easy to maneuver; a true pleasure to use. They will do all your require, quickly and easily.

We encourage close inspection of our canoes. Their detail and quality will impress as well as bear the closest scrutiny.

Please give us a call.
