The watercraft on the Canoes Visa Gift Card are the modern incarnation of boats that have been with us for thousands of years. The oldest known canoe dates back about 8,000 years. It was a dugout fashioned from a big pine log, discovered in the Netherlands in 1955. Native Americans built canoes with sapling frameworks and covered them with big sheets of birch bark. The shallow draft, light weight and ability to carry a big load made canoes the primary mode of long-distance transportation in North America in the 18th and 19th Centuries. People who enjoy this sport will love to receive a Canoes Visa Gift Card.
