Sanborn Canoe Company is a paddling brand concerned with fine craftsmanship, aesthetics and above all else we are honor bound to preserve & cultivate the great paddling heritage that has been born by many over the centuries. We handcraft canoe paddles from wood – offering many customizable options. As well as ‘limited run’ paddles as art. Our mission as paddlers and craftsmen is to cultivate passion for the paddling heritage. To add what we can to that heritage: honoring past traditions – fostering new connections for the paddling community – and forging new horizons for paddlers.


Every year our members lead 20+ paddling adventures on whitewater rivers and quiet water rivers, streams and lakes. We also offer instructional clinics that teach whitewater moving water and quietwater paddling, safety, and rescue skills. Join us on a trip or at a clinic to perfect your skills, explore new waterways, meet other paddlers, work out voluntary shuttling arrangements, learn from skilled volunteer leaders, and have fun on the water. All trips are free unless otherwise indicated. Paddle with us once and you become a member of RTS for the next two years. All paddlers are welcome, whether canoeists, kayakers or sea-kayakers. There are no dues. RTS is affiliated with the Sierra Club, but our trips are open to everyone. We want to get you on rivers. We hope that you grow to enjoy paddling and to love rivers and support groups that work to protect them such as the Sierra Club.


We are committed to creating high quality handmade wooden canoe paddles. The paddles are made from various types of wood to create a functional, strong, lightweight paddle that will stand the test of time. All of the wilderness paddles are reinforced with fiberglass and epoxy tipped on the blades. They are then finished in several coats of a spar varnish. The grips are oiled for a smooth feel in your hand while paddling. This makes them great for trips of all kinds!
