Become a Mariner

Come kayak with Trackers! Paddle and play through local waterways in our traditional handcrafted, skin-on-frame boats. Watch for wildlife on the water and shore: birds, deer and even otters. Learn the fundamentals of boating: safety, gear, paddling technique, knots and other mariner skills.

Please Note If you do not have one, we provide your child with the required PFD (Personal Flotation Device).

The Trackers Difference

Trackers boats are unique. Skin-on-frame kayaks evolved over thousands of years in some of the most arduous waters in the world, such as the Arctic Ocean. The "skin" of our highly flexible and resilient boats is ballistic-grade nylon - the same material used in bulletproof vests. The wood frames are lashed and pegged using traditional construction techniques. Because of their natural profile, our boats also encourage closer encounters with wildlife.

About Our Boats

Skin-on-frame boats have evolved and been put to the test over thousands of years of heavy use on some of the most arduous seas in the world, such as the arctic ocean. The "skin" of our highly flexible and resilient boats is ballistic grade nylon (the same material used in bulletproof vests). The frames of these boats are lashed and pegged through traditional construction. Modern engineers and boat builders value the flexibility of skin-on-frame construction for being more efficient and durable then fiberglass design in many respects. Because of the natural profile of our boats they also encourage closer encounters with river wildlife from ducks to birds to otters.
