The Spirit Dancer represents canoes designed and used for hundreds of years by First Nations People along the Northwest Coast of B.C.
The Spirit Dancer is just over 39′ long and will seat 16-18 paddlers. Similar in design to our 31′ Northern Dancer, this model has a much more stable hull design and is ideal for longer ocean voyages. It's long straight waterline aids in terrific tracking ability, yet it turns easily with minimum effort. These are features you will need for any trips you have planned on the coast.
The Spirit Dancer will be approximately 30% of the weight of a similar sized wooden canoe made in the traditional manner. And the best part, they will be virtually maintenance free.
