Whitewater playboats love to go where other canoes fear to tread. Often thought of as the domain of kayaks, these canoes are at home in the rapids, offering paddlers immediate response and unrivalled agility as they learn the river’s moods and tricks. These tried and true designs can go anywhere a kayak can go and have won more than their share of whitewater championships.


Open canoe whitewater tandem paddling is one of the most challenging paddling disciplines, but once mastered, it is also one of the most rewarding. Not only are you in the midst of a hostile environment but your success is dependent on teamwork with another paddler. To excel in this environment and discipline, you need a canoe that provides a solid, predictable, yet high performance platform. The Caption has been the benchmark for open canoe tandems since it was introduced. Its reign remains unrivaled.
