To the best canoe club in the Hutt!

The Hutt Valley Canoe Club focuses on whitewater paddling with an emphasis on our gems of local rivers in the region. Regular trips are held on Te Awa Kairangi/Hutt River (both the Hutt Gorge and the section in Birchville), the Whakatīkei River, the Akatarawa River, and the Ōtaki River. We also travel across the North Island, heading to the releases from the various rivers that are hydro controlled. During the summer we often head to the South Island during the holiday season and paddle around the Buller region and the West Coast rivers as well.

We run a number of beginner trips as well as pool sessions for learners and experienced paddlers to brush up on rolling techniques, rescues and tricks! We also have a good supply of kayaks and gear to use both at the pool and on river trips.

Our members include both hardshell kayakers and packrafters. We have a fullsize raft and a few two-person ‘ducky’ inflatable kayaks for our members to hire.

You can find out more about becoming a member here, and how to contact us here. Get in touch any time, new members are always welcome.

See you on the water!
