Save on paddling gear - just in time for the holidays!

Looking for a great gift for the paddler on your list - or maybe for yourself?
(you've been good all year - right?) We've got great savings in store just in time for the holidays.

Experience Ultimate Paddle Performance!
Ultimate Paddle Performance may sound like something marketed to
"pros", but the fact of the matter is everyone, regardless of their level of experience, can benefit from a well designed paddle that fits properly. Ultimately it means you enjoy greater comfort, reduced fatigue, enhanced performance and more fun on your next paddling adventure.

How about a PFD that conforms to your torso? That’s the benefit of Articulated Fit (AF). Innovative closure unites a series of segmented foam panels to provide a comfortable fit for both men and women. Wrap-around front panel and an exterior zipper makes it easy to secure and release.

AF 6.5 - Regular $159.95 SALE $109.95
AF 7.5 - Regular $179.95 SALE $129.95
LP 7.6 - Regular $170.95 SALE #129.95

Does your Canoe or Kayak need some love?

As the paddling season starts to draw to a close, paddlers are starting to notice wear and tear on their boats as well as repairs that will need to be done before the next paddling season begins.

Just drop your boat off at Swift Muskoka and we'll take care of the rest. Once your boat has been checked over at our factory we'll give you a call with a quote. From there our Factory Repair Technicians will give your boat the love it needs and get it ready for the 2010 paddling season.

We even offer low winter storage rates for those who want to pick up their boats in the spring or even just for those who just don't have space to store their boats.

No appointment is necessary to drop off boats for repair - just come by during business hours and we'll take it from there!

The Paddling Season is Here!

It has been very busy here at Swift since our last blog posting!

All of our stores are now open and loaded with everything you need to have fun, and be safe, on the water this summer. We've got exciting new product in store now, and more coming in each day.

BADGER PADDLES - For those who dig the water...
Badger Paddles are wooden paddles hand crafted in Ontario, CANADA and finished with a hand rubbed specially prepared oil-based formula. Each paddle has a badger paw logo singly painted on by hand and boasts a dihedral ridge to prevent flutter.

Our staff have been padding with these new paddles and they are hooked! If you dig the water, drop by one of our stores to check out these new paddles. If we don't have the perfect paddle for you we can custom order it.


The MsFit Tour and the Orbit Tour were two of our best selling PFD's last year. We were excited to see that Kokatat is offering both models in new colours this season. Is it just a coincidence that the new Berry colour matches our Swift Raspberry Kayaks perfectly?


The response to the Kiwassa 12.6 has been overwhelming and as a result we are launching a new take on this popular kayak with the Kiwassa 12.6 LV. The LV, meaning Low Volume, offers a little less volume under the deck, with the same level of performance found in the regular 12.6. This boat fits women, smaller paddlers and those who just like a more customized fit a little better.

Drop by one of our stores and paddle this sweet kayak this weekend!
