Canoe Buoyancy Blocks & Air Bags

Buoyancy Bags (also called air bags or floatation bags) or buoyancy blocks are essential kit for safe canoeing. They are used to keep a canoe afloat should you capsize. With air bags or buoyancy blocks installed a flooded or capsized canoe will float higher as there is less room for water to fill. This makes the canoe easier to turn back over and re-enter, and quicker to bilge out. They are highly recommended if canoeing on the sea or whitewater where water ingress and/or capsize is more likely.

Solid foam buoyancy blocks are super durable with no need to worry about punctures. They can also be shaped to fit your canoe if a really snug fit is required. Air bags are easy to inflate/deflate and are also easy to store when not in use. Various sizes are available to fit a wide range of canoes.
