International Travel


Have you ever wanted to travel to exotic places like Ecuador, Costa Rica, Peru, and other boating locations around the globe with your own cataraft? Well, now you can. Go Light Outdoors has put together an “International Travel” cataraft package in both standard and deluxe versions that allow you to take a cataraft, frame, and oars on most airlines. Note that there still may be additional charges for excess or oversize baggage, but our packages break down into two packages that meet the “standard” airline weight limit of 50 pounds per package.

All set for International Travel, including my personal gear in the blue dry bag.
