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, there is less room for water to fill, making 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 likely.
