Pirogue


The PIROGUE is a Cajun canoe, a type of boat popular in the marshes and bayous of the South. These flat-bottomed hulls have shallow draft and a minimal beam, and can be easily poled or paddled with either single or double blade paddles. The PIROGUE will slip into areas that are inaccessible to other craft.
