VCKC Booking Page
When not scheduled for club events, VCKC canoes, kayaks, SUPs, and OC1s are available to qualified VCKC members for personal use on the Upper Gorge Waterway and Portage Inlet, and for participation in club sanctioned day trips.
VCKC CANNOT LOAN OR RENT ANY OF ITS EQUIPMENT TO NON-MEMBERS. If you are a school or other organization and think your group may have a continuing interest in paddling, you may be interested in becoming an Associate Member. Please contact our Membership director (email@example.com) to discuss this.
VCKC IS AN ALL-VOLUNTEER CLUB. There is no customer service agent employed to look after you, or the reservation system or the equiment. Response times may not be quick. Please do not expect same day service, especially if you have not yet been approved for using the booking system.
Please read and follow these guidelines:

Here's more information about how we determine whether a member may use Club watercraft.
Orientation: For all programs, self-booking requires that a member has participated in an orientation session to become familiar with:
Canoe and Kayak: a Paddle Canada or RCABC basic canoe or kayak skills course is usually sufficient. If you did not take the course with VCKC, then please send us a photo of the certification. Otherwise, please get in touch with the Canoe or Kayak program director (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com) to discuss your qualifications and experience and have them let us know that you are approved for booking.
Outriggers (OC1, OC2, Hurricane, Solstice): Please contact the Marathon & Small Boats director (firstname.lastname@example.org) for approval for the yellow OC1s, or for training and approval for the other outriggers.
SUP: We have no stand-up paddle boards in the system yet. Please get in touch with the SUP director (email@example.com) to arrange taking out a SUP.
