The Voyageur Big Canoe is a versatile and seaworthy canoe for more experienced canoeists.

The 25' Voyageur canoe, the first Big Canoe built by Clipper, can easily handle up to 10 paddlers. Modelled after the Voyageur Centennial canoe, the Voyageur characterizes a tried and true canoe design. The Voyageur can be paddled in many conditions from ocean to extended wilderness expeditions on large lakes. The straight keel line of the Voyageur gives it excellent tracking ability. Its slightly rounded hull shape will make it fast, however, it is not quite as stable for novice use as is the Mariner or Langley.

The Voyageur has been used extensively as a training craft for dragon boat racing and for corporate outings. As unlikely as it sounds, the Voyageur has even been used to pull water skiers! Just ask the Publisher of Canoe/Kayak Magazine.

The Voyageur has been paddled in many types of conditions. The Upper Thompson River in BC, rated at up to Grade III whitewater, has been run many times. Puget Sound is crossed regularly and Georgia Straight has been crossed between Nanaimo and Horseshoe Bay. One crossing saw breaking waves of 8 to 10 feet. The safety boats had returned to Nanaimo... but the Voyageur canoes wouldn't be stopped.

Large canoes are often referred to as WAR Canoes, particularly in articles written in the early 1900's. Today we often refer to them as 'Big Canoes' encompassing the many 22'+ styles and shapes paddled in North America today.
