See Through Canoe Sets the Naked Boat Afloat

Transparent CanoeSee Through Canoe, a Colorado based company, is introducing transparent canoes and kayaks. The clear watercraft provide a more interactive experience with nature than their conventional counterparts. The cutting-edge portable products can be ordered either online or at See Through Canoe's home base in Idaho Springs.
Transparent CanoeIdaho Springs, Colorado - July 19, 2007 -- While See Through Canoe's products may not enable consumers to walk on water, they'll make them look like they are, according to Michael McCarthy, president of the company that specializes in transparent watercraft.

McCarthy, an avid salt and freshwater fisherman who's traveled throughout much of America before settling in Colorado, chose to sell the clear canoes and kayaks as a way to provide water enthusiasts with "a complete 3-dimensional contact with all the nature around at any given time--the water before you, below you and all that swims and lives beneath the surface."

See Through Canoe's mission is, "to provide an experience rather than just selling a product" says McCarthy who aims to fit the best product with each customer's skills and adventure ideas.

See Through Canoe offers five different models of canoes and kayaks, all with either completely clear bodies or see through floors. The hard shell see through canoe (2 person capacity) is ruggedly durable and stable. Its exceptional tracking allows for easy long distance paddling for both the novice and the professional. It allows the fisherman to see their potential catch. And naturalists can utilize the canoe to study wildlife in a noninvasive manner.

The inexpensive inflatable canoe-kayak hybrids (there are both 1 or 2 person models) are portable and stable. Compact and ideal for campers and travelers, these models are stored in a carry bag and can be pump-inflated in minutes. They feature safe cushioned sides and a see through floor. This watercraft provides entertainment and education for children-enabling them to study aquatic flora and fauna through the clear bottom as they glide over the wonders of the water.

A pricier product for the consummate consumer is the folding sea kayak. This entirely clear craft folds up with ease and can fit into a backpack allowing for quick transition from surf to turf. This model promises to impress, says McCarthy, who adds, "No matter which product floats the consumer's boat, See Through Canoe promises a personal glass bottom tour you can take anytime without the annoying tour guide."

Based in Colorado, the state of many an outdoor adventure, See Through Canoe is displaying its products at the Idaho Springs home base as well as shipping them anywhere in the country via internet orders.
