Club trips are the heart and soul of the Vancouver Kayak Club (Whitewater). After all, the main reason we're here is to get together and paddle rivers in a fun and safe environment! Vancouver Kayak Club (Whitewater) trips provide paddlers of all abilities the opportunity to meet with others and explore some of the most beautiful and exciting rivers in Southwest BC and beyond. Below is a list of trips and events planned for this year. Please note that a trip on the schedule is not finalized until an exact date, organizer and contact are listed. Check out the forum: VKC Trips board for more trip details.

Vancouver Kayak Club (Whitewater) trips are organized by members, which means that we rely on volunteers to step forward and offer to organize and support club trips and events. The satisfaction of helping others get on the river is well worth the effort! We welcome suggestions for club trips and are always on the lookout for new organizers and support boaters. If you would like to help out in any way including ideas for trips that you would like to organize, please contact the Vancouver Kayak Club (Whitewater) Trip Coordinator.

IMPORTANT: Before participating on a club trip, all paddlers must become familiar with the Vancouver Kayak Club (Whitewater) trip guidelines, accept responsibility for their conduct on the river and sign a waiver of liability. The guidelines and waiver will be posted here shortly (Vancouver Kayak Club (Whitewater) members on the forum can also read the guidelines in the Trip Planning message board). In the meantime, please contact the Vancouver Kayak Club (Whitewater)Trip Coordinator with any questions regarding what is expected of trip organizers and participants.
