Mark and Jane Dixon Testimonial
Here is a photo of our Souris River Quetico 17 on the Blackwater Estuary in Essex, England, hauled up as the tide comes in over a sand bar and oyster reef. This boat we had imported from Souris four years ago, after we had hired a Quetico for an unguided wilderness trip in Temagami, and were so impressed with the canoe’s handling that we had one shipped over. It is, as far as we know, the only Le Tigre in the UK and we have paddled this boat for hundreds of miles around our local coast and rivers.
Although over the last two years we hired canoes for trips down the Yukon and last year across Mongolia on the Orhon river, none were Souris and none were such lovely boats to paddle in. This year we are back to Canada to the Woodland Caribou Provincial Park for another two week unguided trip, but Red Lake Outfitters who are organising our adventure, use Souris, so we can lash the craft to the De Havilland float plane sure in the knowledge that we have the best canoe in the world to navigate around in.
