About This Canoe

Discover the fantastic waterways of Ely, Minnesota with your own two seater canoe! Rent a Tandem Kevlar Canoe! Rates as low as $22 per day.

Between Lake Superior and Lake of the Woods, lies a vast network of smaller lakes and streams – a region once famous as the water highway of the Voyageurs. In the heart of this wilderness lies the United States’ Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness(BWCAW) and Ontario’s Quetico Provincial Park. They join together to form an area of more than two million acres known as the canoe country. A Boundary Waters and Quetico Park canoe trip is more than just a route on a map – more than merely “camping out”. Evening campfires, the resounding slap of a beaver’s tail, the call of a loon, the breeze through the pines… this is the canoe country.

Our Equipment

We believe that the canoe trip equipment we offer is unmatched by any outfitter in the canoe country. When you rent a tandem Kevlar canoe from Canadian Waters, you get a Kevlar ultra-light canoe that weighs between 39 lbs. and 42 lbs., NOT a Kevlar Flex Core that weighs between 55 lbs. and 63 lbs. or a fiberglass Columbia that weighs 60 lbs. Our packs are made by Granite Gear, and every pack we rent is equipped with padded shoulder straps, padded hip straps and sternum straps. The hip and sternum straps are especially nice for smaller people such as women and youths as they make carrying the pack much easier. Unlike most outfitters who still use the old style Eureka tents, we only use tents manufactured by Alps Mountaineering. All of our tents are freestanding, have 2 doors, are well-ventilated and easy to set up. We are the only outfitter that packs all our food supplies in U.S. Forest Service recommended bear-proof barrels with padded shoulder straps and comfortable hip straps. This eliminates the need to hang your food at night. Our sleeping bags are made by Slumberjack and are filled with Quallofill. They are washed after every use and are the most compressible synthetic sleeping bags on the market. Our Coleman Peak 1 Max Xpedition two- burner stoves are the safest, most compact two-burner stoves available. Folded, they fit in a piece of 4” diameter plastic pipe.
