A note about Catch a Canoe and Bicycles Too:
The evolution of modern day canoe design is prospering in Mendocino County. For 30 years, the Catch a Canoe design team has partnered with Secret Harbor Boatworks to produce the most unique rental boats on the planet. Redwood outriggers are available in several configurations and hold from 2 to 10 people each. Many are pet friendly and they are also perfect for families due to their rock solid stability. A foot operated rudder system allows easy control for both novice and experienced paddlers alike. In addition, the narrow efficient hull and float design, reduces the amount of effort typically needed for canoe propulsion.
