Travel Canoe 16 Reviews

4.7 out of 5 stars. (31)
Russel Callen Verified Owner 4/15/2022 5.0 out of 5 stars.

I purchased this boat to get out on the water with the family, and it accommodates us perfectly. Inflating the boat and attaching the seats is pretty quick, even with the manual pump...but the included electric pump really makes quick work of it. Once the boat is inflated to pressure and has the 3 seats in place it is really rigid and was rather stable. Like any canoe it gets pushed around by the wind a bit, but it dealt with white caps from long shore windows without issue. We really have enjoyed exploring local waterways that wouldn't be possible for all 3 of us. It took some time to figure out how to fold it up, but after a few times it gets easier. It is quite heavy though. The included paddles are great, however picked up a 260cm Bending Branches kayak paddle and it was a game changer, no more fighting with the other occupants over their inconsistent paddling. I can maneuver the boat pretty well by myself with the kayak paddle, and then grab the canoe paddle if I really want to dig in.

Timothy Wise Verified Owner 3/6/2022 3.0 out of 5 stars.

My wife and I are in our 60's. We haul two Hobie Mirage Drive kayaks on the top of our 3/4 ton heavy duty pickup truck. We needed something that we could take our dog and/or grand children with us. The TC16 is large enough for that. We bought the Wood/Web seats electric pump for three package. My review is similar to others and I feel it is very important buyers understand what they are going to get. Pros - Well made! Easy to paddle and easily cuts through waves. Relatively fast. Lots of room. Easy to assemble and take down/fold up. Just follow the directions!

Cons - Lots. The electric pump will not reach the canoe if you have a large vehicle. The wood seats make the canoe tippy as they raise the center of gravity. Lots of storage is required for the seats, manual pump, and oars as they DO NOT fit into the carrying bag. The unit is much bigger folded that you think it is. Get a kayak trolley cart as you will need it if you intend to transport the put together canoe and gear any distance.

Donald Bastin Verified Owner 12/27/2021 4.0 out of 5 stars.

Overall, my wife and I are pleased with the inflatable canoe, and impressed with its design and capabilities. It is stable, responsive, easy to maneuver, and able to carry a respectable load of camping equipment, which is what we use it for. As an inflatable boat, it is unique, and we get a lot of positive comments from onlookers. The hand pump is adequate for inflation, though it is a bit tiring. We have only two negatives: It is heavy. We are in our 70s, and while we are in good shape, the boat is something of a struggle to move around, particularly when deflated, as the carrying bag appears to be poorly designed. Folding the deflated boat is also a trial, as it not nearly as simple or easy as it appears in your online video (which seems to depict an earlier version of this boat). Try as we might, we never seem to be able to get it folded neatly.

Nonetheless, we are happy to be able to fit the boat in the back of our Chevy Bolt and not have to worry about strapping it to the roof of the car.

Tim Cannon Verified Owner 12/1/2021 5.0 out of 5 stars.

This canoe is great. Everything fits in the trunk of my car and is relatively easy to transport. Initially I didn't purchase the middle seat. Once I realized that I needed it, I had a quick conversation on Facebook and it was on it's way. I recommend the canoe for it's portability and sturdiness.

If you are going to ever paddle solo, get the middle seat.

Key Features

Patented All Drop Stitch Contruction Creates The Shape Of Traditional Canoes

Patented All Drop Stitch Contruction Creates The Shape Of Traditional Canoes

The flat three inch thick high pressure (up to 10 psi) side and floor chambers create a narrow, rigid and extremely spacious canoe. This construction system allows us to literally reinvent the traditional canoe in a unique inflatable form and provides previously impossible benefits. Greater safety, incredible stability and incomparable portability with no sacrifice to paddling performance. U.S. Patent 9,452,809

Safer Because Of Inherent Buoyancy

Safer Because Of Inherent Buoyancy

Unlike traditional rigid canoes, our Travel Canoe has added buoyancy from the inflatable air chambers of the floor and sides. This means while adhering to the Travel Canoes specifications it will not sink. In addition, because the air chambers have inherent buoyancy you can load this canoe with hundreds of pounds of supplies and still paddle and maneuver easily. Best of all this inherent buoyancy makes the Travel Canoe safer in whitewater rapids (up through class IV).

Double Chine System For Triple Stability And Improved Tracking

Double Chine System For Triple Stability And Improved Tracking

The Travel Canoe is more stable than many traditional canoes because of the Double Chines that run the entire length of the canoe. All canoes have some form of primary and secondary stability. The Travel Canoe actually has three forms of stability. The two distinct chines along with the flat bottom contribute to stability, speed and tracking of the Travel Canoe. The first chine is formed where the drop stitch inflatable floor meets the drop stitch inflatable side walls. The second chine comes from the angle of the drop stitch inflatable side walls. This results in primary stability from the flat bottom, secondary stability from the first chine and additional stability from the second chine.

Bow And Stern Molds Combined With Rear Removable Skeg For Speed And Tracking

Bow And Stern Molds Combined With Rear Removable Skeg For Speed And Tracking

The Travel Canoe features bow and stern molds that cut through the wind, water, waves, and current while creating lift reducing drag and friction. The added feature of a removable rear skeg further improves speed and tracking because the skeg reduces the natural yaw/swinging of a canoe and makes forward motion far more efficient. The skeg is designed for use in open water and windy conditions. It can be removed in seconds for use on whitewater or when using the J-stokes.

Diamond Deck Pads For More Secure Footing

Diamond Deck Pads For More Secure Footing

To provide safe and secure footing when getting in and out of the Travel Canoe we have added a layer of diamond pattern anti-skid EVA foam decking. This not only makes this canoe safer to stand on (especially when fishing and casting) it adds an additional layer of protection to the floor. To secure the optional drop stitch inflatable seats while providing maximum adjustability (for one, two or three paddlers) additional d-rings have been added to hold a durable nylon strap that keeps the seat in place.

Packs Into A Bag And Fits Into A Small Car Trunk

Packs Into A Bag And Fits Into A Small Car Trunk

Not only is the Travel Canoe 33% lighter than rigid canoes of the same class but it also deflates and packs down to a mere 1/4 of its inflated size. So the Travel Canoe will fit easily into the smallest car trunks for both easy storage and transport, making it readily available for use at all times.
