Teal Paddles and Canoe Yokes
Teal paddles and yokes originated in the midst of northern Ontario's lakes and rivers in 1972. Since then, they have been distributed to canoe enthusiasts through out the world.
We make one piece paddles of birch, cherry, poplar and ash woods. They are durable, reliable and affordable.
Our paddles range in size from 36 inch to 70 inch but we are happy to custom make a paddle to your specifics. Our Beavertail adult paddles are 6" wide in the blade but we also make an 8" wide paddle for river and white water canoeing. Our Ottertail paddles come in two shapes, slim and modified, which are used for solo canoeing. We also make poplar oars of 6'6'' , 7'and 8'.
The Teal portage yoke is of the highest quality and comfort available in a yoke. The centre is scooped out to fit comfortably around the neck, which makes carrying a canoe a pleasure. The Teal II yoke is for those with husky shoulders and necks. We also shallow out a recess in the middle of the yoke to accommodate the neck vertebrae." We make our yokes of birch, poplar, cherry and ash wood. They come in 44 inch and the standard 39 inch lengths.
This 3 dimensional maple leaf was made by James A. Smith for the 2012 Canada Day festivities on Parliament Hill. He painted 41 inch Teal Paddles red and screwed them together. People on the Hill had the opportunity to write on the paddle blades to show their Canadian Pride. What a neat idea!

Lazering makes a great gift even better! We can arrange for the lazering to be done at our local Source for Sports store. Birch and cherry woods are best suited. The large paddles have an ink fill in the lazering while the birch 12 inch paddle does not. Images can be sent directly to the store by internet.
