General Touring / Heron

Life asks a lot of some canoes - like be ready for anything. The Heron is a compact, maneuverable tandem canoe that answers all requests. It's the smallest tandem canoe in our General Touring family--a 15-foot version of our best-selling Spirit II. Like the Spirit II, the Heron is stable and efficient to paddle. It's shorter length makes it highly maneuverable and perfect for small streams and quiet backwaters. Compact and lightweight, the Heron is ideal for lighter paddlers and smaller water.

Ultra-light w/Aramid 36lbs. / USA MSRP $3,599 USD / Canada $4,599 CAD
Ultra-light hulls are stiff and incredibly light. They are ideal for speed and distance paddling and for all people or conditions that demand the lightest gear. In our Ultra-light construction a structural-foam core and ribs are laminated into the hull and sides. We also add extra fabric layers to strengthen specific targeted areas. Aluminum plates are strategically laminated into the hull. Seats, footbraces, and all hardware is then riveted into these plates. This gives a very secure connection and eliminates rivet heads on the exterior. Aramid, the fiber used for aerospace, body armor and bulletproof vests, is amazingly light and strong. We've used it for more than 30 years to construct extremely light and tough canoes. Wenonah Canoe is the worlds largest maker of canoes using Aramid.
