Biggest and bestest
After a lot of research we decided Swift was the way to go and having 2 dogs and loving our 3 week trips the Keewaydin 18.6 was what we needed to fit all the gear and have room for our Big and little pups. Our Bongo 100lb Old English Sheepdog did his best to tip us on his first canoe trip but our swift was so stable on the water, even over packed and canoeing some big waves on Georgian Bay we stayed dry, and believe me Bongo did his best to try and sink us. I 100% believe Swift builds the best designed and built canoes in the world. Can’t wait to create a million more memories in ours.
The best part of our family’s summer
Our Keewaydin is absolutely amazing, and is the best part of our family’s summer. If you’re looking for an exceptional quality boat to enjoy with kids, this is it. The boat is fast, sturdy, comfortable, absolutely beautiful, and has taken us on family adventures we will never forget. After years of renting canoes it has felt amazing to finally own our own boat, and we are so happy that it’s this one. Whether you’re doing day trips or longer canoe trips, this Keewaydin is up for the adventure, and feels amazing to paddle. Happy paddling!
