A canoe is a long, narrow boat that utilizes an oar to be propelled through the water. Although no one is quite sure when canoeing began, archeologists know it’s been used as a mode of transportation for more than 8,000 years. While some still use it for transportation, it is more widely known as a sport or leisure activity. The canoe emoji can be used to depict water sports in a lake or river. If you’re planning a fishing trip, pair it with the fish emoji to show what you’re planning.
