Trips

Kayak tripping is one of the reasons that many people join the kayak fleet.  At the beginning of each season we plan the trip calendar and tailor the destinations and level of difficulty to involve as many members as possible. 

Once a trip is on the calendar, we need a volunteer to lead it and someone to organize it.  Once they are in place, we will open trip for participants to apply - trips are normally limited to six people, but we have a wait list for each.  The organization process will include a planning meeting and a paddle together.

Our trip calendar is below; see the Trip Resources page for things to help leaders, organizers and participants (you need to be signed in as a member to view).

    This is a great introductory trip to overnight paddling!  Stunning scenery, sheltered waters and an abundance of wildlife.

    We will launch at Deep Cove early on Saturday morning and will camp at either Granite Falls or Twin Islands depending on conditions and the level of group.  We will return on Sunday, and should be back at Jericho by early evening.

    Pre-requisites: Checked out for kayak fleet (or signed up for a checkout before May 25th), moderate fitness, practiced rescues in the last 12 months.  Although the area is sheltered you should be comfortable paddling in wind up to 12 knots.

    A beautiful area, with calm waters, a mountain backdrop and an excellent introduction to multi-day kayaking.

    We will meet early in the morning at the club, and catch the ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale.  We will most likely launch from Tuwanek and camp 2 nights at Kunechin Point, a stunning campsite at the head of the inlet.  This will give ample time to explore the local area.

    Pre-requisites: Checked out for kayak fleet (or signed up for a checkout before June 22nd), moderate fitness, practiced rescues in the last 12 months.  Although the area is sheltered you should be comfortable paddling in wind up to 12 knots.
