Expedition / Itasca

This ultimate expedition canoe hauls amazing loads, yet is easy to handle.

The Itasca is a tandem performance touring canoe that's built to carry expedition gear through wind and waves. Like a racer on steroids, the Itasca is the right boat for extreme exploring, coastal touring and season-long expeditions. This long, seaworthy hull tracks superbly, carries heavy loads and has enough speed to eat up the miles on an ambitious trip.The wide midsection of the Itasca's 19-foot hull allows for big loads and provides massive stability. The unique design of the boat's gunwales mimics the lines of marathon race canoes, making it easy to reach the water for an efficient forward stroke. The standard wood gunwales add strength and beauty to this unique design.

The Itasca is among our largest canoes, yet offers speed and efficiency that rivals some of our most performance oriented models. It's a wonderfully balanced design that handles like a thoroughbred and carries gear like a tractor trailer. Packs, kids, dogs, wild Canadian lakes, rugged coastlines, wilderness rivers--whatever adventures thrill your imagination, the Itasca is up to the challenge.

Ultra-light w/Aramid 49lbs. / USA MSRP $4,599 USD / Canada $5,849 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.
