We created Paddle Partner to ensure that all that power would always be on tap, regardless of whether a connection is available.

Among all the outdoor sports that Americans regularly participate in, those grouped under the heading of “paddlesports” are some of the fastest growing. According to a 2015 special report issued by Coleman, the Outdoor Foundation, and others, for example, overall participation in paddlesports like canoeing, kayaking, and rafting grew by more than 10 percent between 2010 and 2014 alone. With an estimated 216 million outings tallied during the final year of that period, paddlesports enthusiasts averaged seven sessions each, making them some of the most dedicated recreational athletes of all.
Paddle Partner was created to help make these popular activities even more rewarding by doing away with the need to rely on problematic paper maps. With built-in digital maps and other coverage of Everglades National Park, Big Bend Saltwater Paddling Trail, Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, and the St. Corix and Namekagon Rivers, the app offers full real-time navigation and information in both offline and online modes. A recent update to Paddle Partner brings it to version 1.2, with many improvements and a frequently requested new preparation map added. Those interested in learning more about the iOS app can do so at the Paddle Partner website, where visitors can also sign up to be notified when the planned Android version is released.
