The club organizes lessons and Group Outings from time to time. Members with their own equipment also get together for informal group paddles throughout the season.
Kayaking - Beginner Lessons
Our first event this year was a women's Level 2 Sea Kayak preparation course. Please stay tuned as we hope to offer more certification courses this summer.
We plan to host more great kayaking lessons in 2023. All equipment is provided. These clinics provide a welcoming environment to practice and improve kayaking strokes and are not attached to any certifications. To register, please create an account and a personal profile within that account at mySportHub.ca
Kayaking - Guided Paddles
The club will hold guided paddles of the harbour Wednesday evenings from 6-7:30pm. All gear and kayaks are provided, and events are open to everyone in the community. Space is limited, so all participants are asked to sign up on mySportHub.ca.
Arrive at 5:40 to be on the water for 6pm. Further details are also available on the SportHub website. These events are offered on a cost-recovery basis: $5 for members and $10 for non-members.
