Chinook Description

The Chinook is a dream craft for every tour operator. The efficient hull design will load easily while still carrying larger paddlers without wearing them out. The Chinook features a large cockpit, inherent stability, and a feeling of speed when paddling. The Chinook is not only incredibly stable – ideal for fishing, photography and wildlife viewing – but also has a long waterline, astounding volume, dry ride and agile performance. The Chinook is a capable long range cruiser, yet a fun kayak for an afternoon paddle.
