Versatile, fast, stable, and comfortable. The Tripper was first introduced in the spring of 1983. In its first year of production, the Tripper became Clipper’s most popular model and has remained the number one canoe of choice for paddlers in the Northwest.

Versatility is perhaps the Tripper’s most popular feature. It is at home on large lakes, open ocean, or up to grade III white water. The Tripper holds the world record for the longest continual canoe trip from Calgary, AB to Belen, Brazil (read the article here). The Tripper is the only canoe to be paddled across Canada in one season during the C2C Expedition from the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick to Vancouver, BC, in 1995 (read the article here).

The Tripper’s ample capacity will carry a family with kids or enough gear for an extended tandem wilderness trip. Its quick speed makes it a first choice for many races in the Northwest. Moderate rocker allows for quick maneuverability, yet a minimum of correction strokes are required to keep it on course. Paddle it with bent shaft paddles for maximum speed and efficiency.

The Tripper’s shallow arch hull provides good initial stability. Gently flared sides and relatively lowslung seats result in great secondary stability. Our specially molded seats are the most comfortable available.

The stern paddler is equipped with an adjustable footbrace, while the bow paddler can adjust the sliding bow seat and use the flotation tank as a footbrace. A footbrace will reduce lower back pain and shoulder stress and will eliminate the need to kneel, while at the same time increase your control of the canoe.

The fiberglass Tripper comes standard with Kevlar reinforcing, anodized aluminum trim, plastic bucket seats, sliding bow seat, adjustable stern footbrace and portage yoke. Recommended optional accessories are a set of four foam thigh pads, a wilderness lash system for gear tie down and optional black aluminum trim. For wilderness tripping, a lace on spray skirt is available.
