Welcome to Inverness Canoe Club / Fàilte gu Club Curach Inbhir Nis
Inverness Canoe Club was formed in 1996 and now has over 250 members paddling at all levels – from beginners to the very experienced. We are active in most recreational areas of paddlesport including sea, white water and open canoe and we hope you will find a place in the club that will suit your particular interests.
The Highlands of Scotland offer some of the best white-water and sea paddling in the world. The sea kayakers meet on Wednesday nights between May and September, while members arrange weekend trips away throughout the Highlands and even further afield over the summer and into autumn. We now have increasingly active white water paddlers, regularly paddling rivers in both kayaks and canoes throughout the year, while SUP is becoming a very popular part of the Club’s activities.
Pool sessions are held on Friday nights during the winter months in the Inverness Aquadome. An introductory course, run in the spring, allows beginners to gain confidence in the pool, before progressing outside onto the Caledonian Canal at the Muirtown Basin and then onto the river and the sea. We offer a wide range of affordable courses throughout the year, aimed at helping our members to develop their skills and leadership.
As a member of the Club, you will benefit from the wide range of canoes and kayaks available for hire to members and from a number of qualified coaches covering all paddling disciplines. All of our coaches are volunteers, but they are ready and willing to pass their skills on to others. The Club is affiliated to the Scottish Canoe Association, allowing members to benefit from their third party insurance scheme when taking part in recognised Club activities.
