About Us

Building Memories since 1978

We believe that our standards should never be limited to just the canoes we craft, but should always consider the memories they are designed to build.

Holy Cow Canoe manufactures light weight composite recreational canoes & kayaks.

Working with advanced new age composite materials such as Ultra-Glass, Kevlar® and Carbon Kevlar® , all Holy Cow Canoes are built to remain strong, durable, and reliable, while remaining very light weight.

Ideal for a variety of recreational applications and terrain, Holy Cow Canoe offers a number of versatile designs suitable for first time paddlers seeking a safe, stable, easy paddling craft to enjoy with the family to advanced paddlers after a sleek craft that offers exceptional speed and efficiency in the water.

Holy Cow Canoe offers well over 39 years of boat building experience and over 22 years of experience in advanced composite construction and engineering. Our master canoe builder has built some of the best composite canoes & kayaks on the planet, including some of the canoes currently used by the Canadian Forces and abroad. Having experimented with countless designs, materials, and procedures we build the very best in a paddling craft, and a canoe that considers safety, durability, and our environment, as well as weight. Weight is important, however not the only factor to consider. Every Holy Cow Canoe is built to be exceptionally light weight without any compromise in strength, toughness, or durability. All of our canoes exceed U.S. And Canadian technical standards & we are listed as a recognized manufacturer with the Canadian and U.S. Coast guard as well as Transport Canada.
