Originally part of the Navy Canoe Club within the Defence Force , over time the very young West Coast Canoe Club started to develop its own unique character and footprint. We have access to the premises of Velddrif Yacht Club who accommodate our boat rack and training sessions for Juniors / Social paddlers. (premises are close to Bokkomlaan). Club members are spread out in the neighbouring towns, as far as Cape Metropole, West Coast, Boland and evenĀ  in the Cedarberg region. Members include die hard dedicated K1 marathon paddlers who participate in the annual well known Berg River Canoe marathon.

The club activities are nestled on the lower Berg river in and around Velddrif. Our waterways are anything from long distance open water paddling on the river where you might have to dodge the occasional speed boat and the notorious southeaster from time to time, to paddling on protected water in Port Owen Marina. And the competent surf ski paddlers could venture out to sea to enjoy themselves and nature.

We are the proud hosts of the well known and popular annual West Coast Canoe Challenge.
