Old Town has been successfully building boats for over 100 years. Our heritage helps us to move forward with new ideas and ways of improving our product line. We are paddlers who want to create designs that we would want to paddle. We take our sport seriously and believe that even the newest most recreational paddler should be able to paddle boats with performing hulls and creature comforts. You’ll hear from our R&D Team (research and development) as they share insightful innovations and sneak peeks of our new products. You will also hear from our Marketing Team, who will provide previews of exciting promotions and upcoming kayaking events.

Boy Saves Deer During Kayak Trip on the Tobique River
It was as happy an ending as the beloved Walt Disney story of Bambi when an 11 year old boy rescued a newborn deer trapped in mud along a river in northern New Brunswick, Canada. Benjamin Thibodeau was on a camping trip in Riley Brook earlier this summer when he spotted a small animal sticking out of the water along the Tobique River. From his Old Town kayak, he could see a little head, ears and some white sots. He thought it might be a baby deer. The boy called to his father; who was on shore, and quickly paddled over to the animal. When he reached the banks of the river; he saw the deer was up to his belly in mud, its four spindly legs buried deep along the bank. With no leverage to free itself, it couldn't move. Wasting very little time Benjamin pulled the deer out of the mud and then with the help of his father moved it to safety. Happily, the next morning both of them woke up to the sight of the deer standing outside the door of their tent with its mother and sibling.
