...to "The Biggest-Best Selection" in the U.S. or
Canada. Located between Rochester and Niagara Falls NY via route 104 in Waterport, NY. (Home Office and Warehouse)
We also have a great store in Rochester on Irondequoit Bay!
TRY-BEFORE-YOU-BUY! See the BIGGEST Unique and Unusual Selection
of Canoes and Kayaks Ever Assembled in One Location. Talk to sales people that know their craft.
Receive polite positive assistance on all your needs. Free installations on Yakima Racks. (Yes,
we carry some other no-name brands - but we only install Yakima because of their simplicity of operation.)
Huge indoor showrooms - open year 'round. You owe it to yourself; get the most for
your dollar, the best boat for your needs and continuing service and advice
long after the sale. Don't settle for just anything hanging from a box store or
a seasonal outlet's ceiling.
The box store can only compete by price. They can't match our selection and service.
Obviously, located amidst a "Sea" of asphalt, the box stores don't have "try before
you buy." A selection from them could be a three to four-hundred dollar mistake! -
Not a Bargain!
We stand behind everything we sell and offer honest,
experienced advice. No "asphalt" operation here. We demo six days a week on our
own water. We have a good selection of used canoes and kayaks too. We take the
time to present and explain the right selection. Narrowing the choices to a
couple, we then demo. The choice is much clearer to you at this time. Plan on
spending a couple of hours with us - bring a lunch, the kids, the (friendly)
family pet, and have a great day at our park-like facilities.
See over 1000 new and used canoes and kayaks in stock every day.
We offer lessons, rentals and even have our own canoe/kayak repair shop.
We sell and install Yakima racks for any car or truck, even those without raingutters!
We manufacture many of our own brand of racks and accessories.
Sadie's time on earth was too short! But, she got a lot into her ten years. Welcomed and greeted tens of thousands of
customers to both Waterport and Rochester stores with her wagging tail and her big brown "approving" nose. Usually "wet"
every day from her many swims in our Loch Finley or the Oak Orchard Creek. A well traveled "Chessie" with over a
thousand rides in our river trip shuttle vehicle, over 20 trips to and from Florida, over 56 airline flights (in her
travel crate) between Rochester - Atlanta - Orlando. The airlines only "misplaced" her two times. She survived four knee
operations, but succumbed to acute pulmonary hypertension (a respiratory condition) which struck her in late September.
No known cause and only limited treatment.
She will be missed, terribly!

Oak Orchard's Multi-Purpose STAINLESS STEEL J-CRADLES - ON SALE!
Why Do We Carry Kayaks On Their Sides and Not Flat?
1. To carry more than one kayak on short cross bars. ie: Factory installed
crossbars, compact cars.
(Yes, we can recommend a Yakima rack to fit onto your factory rack to facilitate a wider bar
for a kayak "flat", right side up, push on from the rear, easy load. See Oak Orchard's
"Gull Wing" Kayak Saddles.)
-Please read on!
2. The sides of kayaks are very strong - unlikely to dent.
3. Only Oak Orchard's Multi-Purpose Stainless Steel J-Cradles carry kayaks, remove easily
and double as kayak wall storage with optional Wall Clips.
4. Only Oak Orchard's Multi-Purpose Stainless Steel J-Cradles can lay down flat when empty on Yakima bars.
5. HD Stainless Steel, deluxe rubber padded, 23" high, so they aren't hidden behind your boat like competitors!
6. New patented 2 piece "upside-down" tie down straps. Tie down in 30 seconds -
No Step Stool Required!
