learn to paddle

Vernon Paddling Centre offers 3 free paddle sessions. For no charge you join an experienced crew and learn to paddle in a six-man outrigger racing canoe. This allows you to ‘try it out’ and take a look at the options that membership to our club offers: use of surf skis, single and double outriggers, as well as traditional canoes.

We are located on Okanagan Lake just past the tennis courts near the boat launch at Paddle Wheel Park.

June 8, 2014 - 10am to 12pm
June 15, 2014 - 10am to 12pm
June 29, 2014 - 10am to 12pm
.

Please email us and let us know if you plan to come out.

Water shoes
Quick drying clothes

A bottle of water
