Experience the adventures of the West Coast in the only First
Nations designed and carved 22' sealing canoe - also known
as "ch'apats". The canoe is an exact composite copy
of our original 22' red cedar canoe, pictured in the background.
This graceful, unique 22' canoe, carved in the Nuu-chah-nulth
style, can accommodate up to ten, along with plenty of gear
It falls in the class of the traditional West coast seal
hunting ch'apats which ranges from about 20' to 26' long.
Its wide hull and extra deep anti-swamping hull are designed
for safety. The ch'apats can be paddled, rowed or sailed.
