VCKC Booking Page
When not scheduled for club events, VCKC canoes, kayaks, SUPs, and OC1s are available to VCKC members for personal use on the Upper Gorge Waterway and Portage Inlet or for participation in club sanctioned day trips.
Remember that VCKC is an all-volunteer member organization. Enabling members to make use of Club watercraft depends completely on users of the equipment looking after it responsibly: paddle safely, within your limits, and clean everything before returning it to its designated place.
There is no customer service agent employed to look after you, the reservation system or the equiment. It is your club. It is what you make it.
Please read and follow these guidelines:

Here's more information about how we determine whether a member may use Club watercraft.
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.
OC1 and the Hurricane: Please contact Peter Elson (the marathon director at firstname.lastname@example.org) for approval for the yellow OC1s, or for approval (and training if necessary) to take out the Hurricane, .
SUP: We have no stand-up paddle boards in the system yet. Please get in touch with James Roorda (email@example.com) to arrange taking out a SUP.
