The Ocoee is coming!!!! Nova Craft Canoes has just unveiled another brand new Canoe! Classic old design from Frankie Hubbard. It is one of the most popular solo whitewater canoes ever produced. The Ocoee’s flexibility is remarkable for creeking and general river running and it is an outstanding OC1 for slalom. With practice the Ocoee is definitely a canoe that anyone can handle. Ocoee is 11’ 3”, will come standard with vinyl gunwales, 44 lb. in Royalex Plus. (not outfitted) Custom Mike Yee outfitting is available.

I was so excited to come this store to be quite disappointed, mainly in service and customer relations. No one greets you or asks if you need any help. Would roam the store for a long time and no one comes to you. Always found the staff sitting at the cash either on their phone or on the computer. Then when asked for assistance, it was like I was bothering the woman and she wasn't helpful at all or tried to help in any other way when she didn't know the answer. Furthermore, when another colleague could see that we were struggling, he did not bother to help either. I rate this place 3 stars bc they have great products and good store hours, but would give 1 star for customer service.

Hi Larissa, I apologize for the lack of support you felt at our store. We try and provide the best customer service possible at all times. We do train our staff not to push sales or bother people while they are just browsing. However, we do train our staff to greet people as they come in and after a time, ask them if they need assistance. What you experienced is not normal behavior for our staff and I am sorry you experienced this. Please give us another chance and you will find this out. I am taking steps to make sure this doesn't happen again. Sincerely, Kelly McDowell Owner

Fantastic place and value! Nothing but great experiences renting kayaks from The Complete Paddler. Range of kayaks is awesome and service is great. Looking forward to renting kayaks more often from The Complete Paddler. I highly recommend using them.

I get the impression that unless you are buying something from the shelf they are not that interested in service. Brought in a kayak for a water test and broken hatch and was told it might not be ready for May long weekend but not much later. Today after hearing nothing was told two more weeks to six weeks. Owner flat out lied to my wife and said he told us this when we dropped it off. We would never have left it if it was to be there for half of the summer. Went to pick up kayak to use while waiting for part and found out they had thrown out hatch lid. Big waste of time. Also selection not that great, MEC better and we would have gotten better service. Would not buy from again. Doesn't help the owner is a naturally rude guy.

We apologize if you found us rude in any way. This was not our intention. We do our best to give a reasonable timeline but we can not control how long parts take to arrive at our store. Usually it is a few weeks, sometimes it is much longer. We take great pride in our customer service so we will make sure we explain this better in the future and provide the best service possible. Do to the nature of special orders and repairs timelines are not exact, that is why places like MEC do not offer those services.

I am surprised Larissa didn't get service . I was greeted by a knowledgeable young man who even mentioned a demo ride at some local beach . Based on the enthusiasm we will try one out and most likely buy one ! One complaint : turn on the A/C !!!
Response from the owner - a month ago
Thanks Tim, We can wait to see you back trying out a boat or two. Sorry about the heat! These old buildings in this area have no A/C! That is why we are so enthusiastic about wanting to take you out onto the lake and try some boats, its cooler on the water! ha Kelly

I am constantly in the Store. Whether it be to sign up for kayak courses or purchasing a paddle, PFD or Kayak. Never an issue. I Always get a greeting when I walk in and find that the staff have never hovered or given me the typical sales pitch. They allow you space to browse and if you need help they are a few steps away. If they don't have what you need, they can order it in. But they have a great selection.

Thank you Mel, It is always a joy to see you.

I bought a whitewater Kayak online and had them ship it to me with their free shipping option! Wonderfull people to talk to on the phone, pleasant and easy to work with and very fast to receive my boat. The Boat was packaged extremely well, not just in a cardboard box but wrapped nicely in moving blankets as well :) I'l be sending more of my business this way in the future!

Thank you Matt! Enjoy your new kayak.

Awesome store, great staff! Incredible selection of Kayaks/Canoes and everything required, rental rates are fair and include everything you could possibly need right down to help loading a boat on your car. Would definitely recommend!
