The Victoria Canoe and Kayak Club (VCKC) is a recreational paddling club based in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

The Club is a not-for-profit organization devoted to the promotion of safe and skillful paddling on Vancouver Island and in the surrounding waters. The Club has a diverse paddling community and with seven paddling programs gives members a wide range of paddling opportunities. Members may participate in any Club program(s).


The Victoria Canoe and Kayak Club respectfully acknowledges that its activities take place on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen peoples, and that the land and waterways’ historical relationship with the Songhees, Esquimalt and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples have existed since time immemorial.

The Club is committed to taking meaningful action to build respectful and reciprocal relations with the Songhees, Esquimalt and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples on whose land and waterways club members have the privilege of living.

VCKC Members are reminded not to paddle in Colquitz Creek.  It is off-limits year-round.   Paddlers, please try to avoid rafts of birds on the inlet as many of them are resting here on their migrations and when we paddle too close they fly away and waste valuable energy.
