Inflatable Canoes
Incept Explorers

The Incept Explorer C42T and C52Q are heavy-duty Canadian-style inflatable canoes made for rivers, lakes and sheltered marine waters.

Very stable and an absolute delight to paddle, giving little drag and excellent maneuverability — even when fully loaded— the Explorer inflatable canoes are equally at home in Class 3 rapids and in open water.

Explorer canoes are part of Incept’s way for getting outdoors people into the wilderness with safety, utility, comfort, fun and wonderment.

Built for 3 and 4 persons, or for 2 and 3 persons with gear, the C42T is perfect for multi-day expeditions and just as good for those spur-of-the-moment day trips.

Taking just minutes to inflate, an Incept Explorer inflatable canoe has no need for vehicle roof racks, does not make storage problems, and travels as baggage on public transport and small aircraft. At the launch site just inflate, load your gear and you’re away.

… just went on a trip with 4 girlfriends and we used the Incept. We went to an area near Dillingham Alaska (SW Alaska) and were taken by float plane to Kulik Lake in the Wood Tikchick State Park.  It's huge and it's all lake paddling but the canoe was magnificent.  We called it the "hooter barge".  I have more photos that I'll send to Incept and …  know that all my friends enjoyed rowing in it - it was a comfortable vessel.

Sleek low-drag hull design makes these inflatable canoes paddle like a hard shell.
