Beautiful. Ultralight. Durable. Sustainably made right here in Whatcom County.

Hand crafted skin-on-frame Greenland kayaks and baidarkas locally made in Bellingham Washington since 2004.

These are real working boats, made in the traditional manner. As tough as anything else available at half the weight and far more attractive.
