Canoe and Kayak Clubs and Places to Paddle

Many people ask us about Kayak Clubs and paddling groups so they can enjoy the company of others and learn from their expertise while paddling.

There are many advantages in joining registered groups:

  • Insurance Cover while paddling
  • Membership Fees are usually quite modest
  • Advice and guidance so you don't learn incorrect paddling techniques
  • The safety of paddling in a group with a designated Trip Leader
  • Regular paddling days encourage regular exercise
  • Development days that target specific skills like rescue techniques, rolling, trip planning, understanding weather and wave conditions
