Octane 85


Blackfly Canoes will be on the road from June 23-July 19th.  All orders placed during this time will ship when we return to the shop.


There’s something magical about feeling water slipping under the hull of a canoe, dropping the edge, and carving across the current with confidence.  The well defined, user friendly chines make the Octane 85 the boat of choice for small and medium paddlers looking for a nimble river running boat with harder edges than the Option.  Combine the edges with the Octane 85’s rocker profile, optimized for speed in a short length, and the result is a boat that loves to be driven, and you’ll love driving.
