Can we paddle anywhere?
In the UK, you need a license to paddle in most of the waterways, rivers, lakes, etc.
BCU membership (Canoe England, Canoe Wales, Scotland Canoe Association and the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland) includes a license to paddle on 5000km of Britain's waterways and canals.

Not all inland water is open to canoeists, some are privately owned or is bounded by land which is private, so do check beforehand. See Useful Websites page.

A Box in folding, A Canoe in unfolding!
MYCANOE is a patented, award winning, TUV certified, origami concept folding canoe. You can fold and unfold MYCANOE in less than 10 minutes and enjoy anywhere.

*** NOTE - we are currently working on a vastly improved and
streamlined "2.6" version which caters for both casual 'sit and
switch' AND for the serious kneeling solo types of paddlers - a version that is more suitable for the UK market***

MyCanoe easily folds up into an easy to carry box. So the boat will be ready for adventure when you are.

Store the boat in the boot of your car, in the back of your van or inside your motorhome, caravan, or campervan. Or store inside your home and take with you on the bus, train or plane.

Or possibly you need an open style canoe that is easy to pick up, and is definitely better or more realistic than an inflatable canoe?

Have back problems and cannot lift heavy weights? - the heaviest packed box is only 16kg

With only a few separate parts to put together, the MyCanoe / MyDinghy will be ready in less than ten minutes with practice. Initially, the assemblies takes longer as the boat is new and and the folds needs folding and you are on an easy learning curve.

Folding back into the box is quicker - there is no need to learn the art of origami, the boat will fold into itself.

MyCanoe is not a recent Kickstarter project - it is a high quality product that has been on the EU market
for over 2-3 years,
and longer elsewhere


The main shell of the MyCanoe and MyDinghy is made from a single piece of custom high quality polypropylene with a 15 year UV treatment that is rated 20,000 folds!

Will you use the boat up to 20,000 times?


Quality 14 ft MyCanoe in 10 minutes to assemble and 5 minutes to fold it back to 37 x 25 in box.

Quality 9 ft MyDinghy also has the same assembly time and folds into a similar sized box.

Performance and versatility:

Award winning, TUV certified, better or comparable with traditional canoes. Optional stabilizer, oar lock kit, and motor for fishing and other activities.

Ability to adjust the degree of keel rocker as required.
