Mike in front of displayIntroduction

Hi, I’m Mike McGrath, CEO and founder of Up-A-Creek Paddle Company.

I make handmade, artisan canoe paddles that are the perfect decorator item for vacation homes, evoking nostalgic memories of simpler times.

Take a look at our paddle designs or personalize a paddle to your tastes. We are the only ones out there that will work with you to personalize your paddle with a name logo or special design.

I grew up in the Finger Lakes area of central New York, surrounded by crystal clear waters and towering forests. My earliest memories were paddling a canoe on Skaneateles Lake and camping in the Adirondacks. My love for the outdoors started early.

Please take a few minutes to check out our selection.  I also enjoy doing custom designs. So feel free to contact me with your ideas or questions. I’d love to hear from you.
