The Big Canoe

Armada of unique crafts

The Big Canoe

Based on the original designs of the French Canadian voyageurs these boats are ideal for expeditions.

Explore Poole Harbour in our new 12-man Big Canoes. Your guide will show you the hidden gems of this natural harbour and allow your team to enjoy themselves. Our guided tours, with instructor helms, are designed for teams to have real fun, working together to ensure an unforgettable experience. These rare craft have been designed and made in the New Forest and our fleet can cater for large group trips. We are able to provide lunches and refreshments to ensure participants have a pleasant journey.
