Nelson has some of the best kayaking locations in the country plus the sort of weather conditions that allow us to enjoy this satisfying and adventurous activity year round.

Nelson Kayak Club is involved in a range of kayaking disciplines – sea, white water and canoe polo.

Welcome to our members and those of you thinking about joining, who may be visiting the web site in search of information, the aim is to provide a one stop location for all information pertaining to club activities.

The club organises trips and events for members, graded to for paddlers’ abilities, allowing for members to come together to experience fun, social kayaking in some great scenic locations. If you have yearn to get out on the water with a supportive group of adventurous likeminded people, then you have come to the right address for information as to how this can be achieved.

If you are new to kayaking or have very little experience the club organises some training events throughout the year to get you started and help you progress your paddling skills.
