Customer Feedback: The Taiga Wooden Canoe Kit

Taiga Love Letters


I just want to pass along a quick thank you for the Taiga canoe. I launched my Taiga for the first time this weekend and was absolutely thrilled with the canoe. It is lightweight, tracks like a dream and maneuvers like a fighter jet.

The build was simple and fun, with well thought out and easy to follow instructions.

This was my first boat build, but it wont’ be my last. Thank you for such a great product!


Dear Pygmy Folks,

Enclosed are two pictures of our Taiga Wilderness Tripper Canoe. We have received many compliments on the canoe and had a lot of fun building it. We will recommend Pygmy Boats to anyone interested in building their own boat. The photos were taken on Lake Cascade right after the ice went out… we couldn’t wait.

We were pleased with the easy to follow instructions and followed them to the letter, even though some did not seem right at the time.  I do quite a little woodworking, so I had my own ideas but “did what I was told” anyway.  Good thing!!

I purchased a Taiga Canoe this past Spring and spent a few months enjoying the process of building her. I took the canoe along for an adventure from Oakland Ca to Washington DC and attached are some of my photos of the trip… Thanks for the great kits you all put together!

Your boats are awesome. I have now built 2, an Osprey Std and Taiga. They are both excellent products and they draw a lot of attention on the truck and the water, nothing but compliments. I am experienced with canoes and the Taiga is way cool.

I purchased the Taiga Wilderness Tripper canoe kit for my Grandkids (two teenagers and an 8 year old) and I to build as a project… This has been a wonderful project for us and we expect to finish it up soon and be in the water by Labor Day.  – Ron

My husband made the Taiga canoe for a wedding gift. Thank you so much, we had a wonderful time building it and he is so proud of it. We get so many comments from people.
