What is the difference between canoe boat and sea kayak?

Canoe is open boat great for leisure paddling, close to the shore on relatively calm water. Expedition sea kayaks are designed for challenging water conditions and are equipped with rudder / skeg system which makes it easier to maneuver in the wind. If you are planning to explore some of remote islands of middle and outer archipelago we strongly recommend our expedition kayaks.

We recommend to take fresh water for first 2-3 days and then refill in on the way. You can use our 5 liters water containers. We advice to have about 3 liter / person / day. On some bigger islands on archipelago there are shops, restaurants, campsites where you can ask people to refill it.
