Auckland Canoe Club

About us

Auckland Canoe Club has been part of the kayaking scene in Auckland since 1954. It has a proud history of helping its members have fun on the water and improve their paddling skills. The club’s main focus is sea kayaking in the waters of Tāmaki Makaurau but occasionally trips are also organised further afield.

Our members are active participants in all types of paddling experiences that get them out on the water, including exploration and camping, social meandering, expeditions, rescue training, rock gardening and surfing. The club offers a variety of events, trips and training sessions and is run by volunteers. The club’s home base is its storage shed on the Ōkahu Bay boat ramp on Tāmaki Drive, Auckland. This facility and the club’s hire fleet are available for members.

We welcome new members, no matter what your experience of kayaking is. Annual membership is only $40 a year, and for that you get:

  • the chance to play on the water (and off) with fellow paddlers
  • support to develop your kayak skills and gain more knowledge about keeping safe on the water
  • affordable boat hire and storage (subject to availability).

Club affiliation to KASK

Auckland Canoe Club is an affiliate member of the Kiwi Association of Sea Kayakers (KASK). The small fee the club pays, which is based on membership numbers, helps support KASK’s national advocacy on behalf of kayakers and its work with Water Safety New Zealand and Maritime New Zealand.

In addition, members receive a free bimonthly electronic copy of the New Zealand Sea Kayak magazine. Members will have access to the new KASK interactive app being released shortly. KASK is a great way of connecting with other paddlers if you are travelling to different regions. Check out its website for more details of its work and events.
