Kevlar Canoe Options

Boundary Waters canoeing

Want to upgrade the Ultralight Complete Outfitting Package from an aluminum canoe to one of the most lightweight canoes on the market? Use this option! Souris River and We-no-nah's Kevlar canoes are constructed from kevlar and are fast, convenient and very light...almost anyone can portage them through the wilderness of the Boundary Waters!

Use the Ultralight Complete Outfitting Rate Calculator; add on $10/per person/per day for a kevlar canoe upgrade.

 

 

Persons Per Canoe in Package Price:

  • 1 canoe for 1-3
  • 2 canoes for 4-5
  • 3 canoes for 6-7
  • 4 canoes for 8-9

Example:  If 3 persons wanted to upgrade to kevlar with the Ultralight Complete Package, they would normally receive one 3-person kevlar canoe for the price of $10 per person per day. This price is in addition to the Ultralight Complete Package rate.

However, if 1 person wanted to go solo with a kayak instead of sharing the 3-person canoe, the rate for this person would be the normal $30 per day kayak rental rate; the other 2 persons would receive a 2-person kevlar canoe upgrade with the package for an additional $10 per person per day.
