Aberdeen Kayak Club, founded in 1976, is one of the focal points for the development of Canoe-sport in the North East of Scotland. It is primarily involved in recreational river paddling, on both quiet stretches and white-water rapids, and with the competitive discipline of Slalom.
Summer trips may include the opportunity to surf at local North East beaches and to explore the sea coves and caves south of Stonehaven with a chance to see close up views of many varieties of birds and sometimes seals.
Winter trips target the more experienced paddler and include visits to the more technical sections of local waters.
Take a look at our Club Calendar to find out about up-and-coming trips and activities.
The Club is affiliated to the Scottish Canoe Association and British Canoeing and carries full third party and public liability insurance for organised activities. The Club includes qualified coaches and can provide coaching and grading to National standards.
