Whether you're paddling a kayak on calm water, or canoeing down a river, canoeing is fun, but can be dangerous. That's why it's essential to have the proper equipment, including paddles.

Canoeing paddles come in several types, including fixed-blade, adjustable blade, and telescoping. While fixed-blade paddles are the most common, adjustable blade and telescoping paddles are gaining in popularity.

The adjustable blade and telescoping paddles are a great option if you're just starting out, as they are lightweight and are easy to transport. The adjustable blade comes with a lever that adjusts the paddle's angle. The telescoping paddle is a two-piece paddle with a shaft that telescopes and locks into place.

In the MOOZ Themes Reviews Lab, we test canoeing paddles for performance, including ease of use, glide, and maneuverability. We also evaluate them for safety, including ergonomics, weight, and stiffness.

Here are the best canoeing paddles of 2022:

Airhead Telescoping Paddle with Boat Hook, 24

Airhead Telescoping Paddle Boat with Hook

by KWIK TEK

Aluminum shaft disappears inside the blade to allow for compact storage under boat seats or in PWC storage compartments

The Airhead Telescoping Paddle with Boat Hook is lightweight and compact, yet durable and versatile. The paddle's blade is made of high-impact molded plastic, so the paddle can withstand repeated strikes. The lock button on the handle prevents accidental unlocking, and the paddle's telescoping shaft is sturdy and locks in place. The paddle's length can be adjusted with a simple twist of the wrist, and the blade is black so it easy to spot on the water. The paddle's blade is 24 inches long, which is ideal for kayaks and small canoes, and it's too short for tall boats. The paddle's locking mechanism is inconvenient, however, since it requires an extra hand to operate. The paddle doesn't lock in place when it's extended, so it's prone to sliding around during use.

Telescoping Paddle, 20

AIRHEAD Telescoping Paddle

by Kwik Tek

20 - 45 inch long, for low profile boats and PWCs

The telescoping paddle is one of the most versatile and durable paddle tools we tested, and it's one of the toughest. The paddle extends from 19 to 42 inches, and it's made of high-impact, plastic. The paddle's long, narrow shape makes it ideal for pushing trash out of sewer pipes and lifting heavy objects. The paddle has a slot that unscrews, and the paddle itself screws off for stowing. The paddle's aluminum construction makes it very durable, and it's heavy enough to provide adequate force against resistant objects. The paddle is well-made but feels a bit cheap, and it's a bit too long. The paddle's screw-off feature works well, but it's annoying to have to remove and reinstall the paddle every time you want to switch heads. The paddle's heads are sold separately, so you can choose the head that works best for you. The paddle's heads include a 2-inch square, a 3-inch square, a 4-inch square, and a 6-inch square.
