"Welcome to the BIGGEST - LITTLE canoe and kayak shop in the world"
Mad River Canoes
Box Stores may try to match our prices but they can't match our service.
Don't be fooled! Those make believe canoe brands on ebay, amazon or the Big Box Store are NO Bargain...


The container of canoes from China has no parts in it. The Box store certainly stocks no parts.
When your seat and deck plate breaks or you lose the hatch no replacements are available.
Shop at the box stores and you'll find you're on your own both before and after the sale.
Hoping that you've made a good choice rather than knowing you've bought the best value for the priorities you have and the waters you want to explore.

Just like for the last 40 years, Oak Orchard has parts in stock for the brands we recommend and sell.
We can repair the canoe you bought from us and get you back on the water.
Just like for the last 40 years, we can phone our rep (a real live person) at Old Town, Mad River, Wenonah or Sportspal and get service and parts for you.

We get calls all the time from people trying to find parts for those "unique" box store canoes, unfortunately parts are just not available, anywhere.
What will you do WHEN your seat, yoke or backrest BREAKS ?
We call them "white elephants"; cheap box store canoes which turn out to be a costly mistake and provide a hobby of frustration rather than fun."

For 40 years Oak Orchard Canoe Kayak Experts has proven that you can see ALL the best brands in one place
PLUS... on-site warranty, on-site repairs, in stock parts AND... lessons, rentals, free try-before-you buy
AND... knowledgeable sales people that spend the time to help you buy the right kayak the first time.

BUYERS GUIDE...
ROYALEX; quality and reliability is very similar from one brand to another since all brands buy their Royalex from one place.
Royalex is a multiple layer abs based plastic well proven over decades of use.
The layers are fused together providing outstanding flexibility on impact and outstanding longevity and overall hull shape retention.
NOTE; the company that makes ALL the Royalex material for MAD RIVER and ALL other canoe brands has stopped production.
Royalex is great material for canoes which we have sold and also used in our rental program for many years with great success.
The time to purchase is now while we still have a FEW Royalex canoes available.
Mad River, Old Town and Wenonah Canoe all make quality Royalex canoes.
PLASTIC (polyethylene); quality and reliability varies greatly from one brand to another depending on the grade of plastic used and the way it's formed.
Single layer plastic canoes dominate the box store scene since they are the lowest price of any option. Quality ranges from disposable trash can grade to a bit better.
Multiple layer plastic canoes are about four times thicker and provide very good shape retention, and durability over many years.
Extra thickness results in much fewer catastrophic failures from cracks and voids which become leaks in a single layer canoe hull.
The layers are fused together providing outstanding flexibility on impact and outstanding longevity and overall hull shape retention.
Unlike single layer canoes which need molded seat supports between the gunwale, multiple layer canoes have replaceable seats and components.
We have sold and also used multiple layer plastic canoes in our rental program for many years with great success.
Examples of multiple layer plastic are Triple Tough by Mad River, Polylink3 or Crosslink3 by Old Town and Three-phase rotomold by Wenonah Canoe.
Fiberglass, Kevlar and carbon (composites); quality and reliability varies greatly from one brand to another.
Reliability depends greatly on the grade of material or fabric used and the way it's formed and reinforced.
Quality ranges from very poor to outstanding.
Multiple layer canoes with a core material in the floor are about four times thicker and provide very good shape retention, and durability over many years.
The canoe world is full of one year wonders that only talk a good game. Oak Orchard only recommends canoe models which are proven in real use.
Examples of good composite canoes include Mad River, NovaCraft, Bell (Northstar) and Wenonah Canoe.

Explorer


Mad River's Explorer is world famous for durability, stability and truly verstile performance.
Jim Henry's original Explorer design is a benchmark when it comes to versatile canoes.
With assurance in its long history of proven performance, try this canoe as a family cruiser,
fisherman's canoe, downriver whitewater hull, or spacious tripping canoe and shrug off the bumps
and grinds that accompany just about any canoeing adventure.
The Explorer's shallow-vee shaped hull featured in this canoe makes it extraordinarily seaworthy
and allows for confident use in any condition, rough or calm. The combination of paddling versatility, capacity,
seaworthiness and superior paddling performance make this canoe as close to an “all-purpose” canoe as you'll get.

Explorer 14 TT (14' 6")


As with all Explorers, the Explorer 14 TT offers predictable rough water
performance mated to superior tracking for a short canoe and provides plenty of
room for gear. With the 14 TT, you get all this capability at a surprisingly
low price. The 14 TT is a very maneuverable tandem yet takes advantage of a
shallow vee hull to help keep it on line, making it an easy canoe to paddle
solo. Its Triple Tough superlinear polyethylene construction means you
get good durability at a low price - the only compromise is weight.
Polyethylene is heavier than most Royalex or Kevlar composites. It's a good choice for the paddler who needs a canoe that's seaworthy, stable and maneuverable.
Compared to other recreation canoes the Explorer 14 TT offers excellent handling on lakes
or streams and makes a very stable platform for family outings.
Standard Outfitting:
EXPLORER 14 TT; ash/web seats, ash portage yoke, vinyl gunwales
