Canoeing picture mooragh park lakeCanoes are open top boats which can carry 2 or 3 people.  They are paddled using a single blade paddle and the paddler is usually kneeling down in the canoe. They are the traditional craft used in North America and are often refered to as Canadian Canoes.  Canoeing sessions take place on the Mooragh Park Lake in Ramsey. This can give you a fun introduction to the sport with plenty of games to play while learning basic strokes.  We use a fleet of Old Town Discovery 158 canoes. All our instructors hold appropriate Bristish Canoeing Coaching Awards.
