The canoe program offers both moving and flat-water day trips. Prior to joining a club trip you must have completed a minimum of RCABC Lakewater Basic Tandem certification for flatwater, and Tandem Moving Water for river trips. The club offers these courses both in the spring and fall, as well as other courses to progress your canoeing experience. Vancouver Island is a great place to paddle, with many ocean and lake opportunities. Opportunities exist for both short paddles and week long excursions. VCKC is a volunteer run organization, so the more time and effort you put into the club the more you get back. Leading a club trip is a good way to be able to paddle a trip in a safe group.
We do not rent canoes, members are expected to have their own paddling equipment. The club does have a small fleet of canoes for training and use during club trips for new members.
