Paddling and exploring the Gippsland waterways is an activity enjoyed by an enthusiastic and active group of members. 

Paddles are held on the second Saturday and the last Sunday or weekend of the month from September through until June, catering for all skill levels.  If you are new to this activity or would just like to try it, use one of the club kayaks (costs apply) and join us exploring the quiet waters of Powlett River, Lake Narracan, Blue Rock or even see the opening of the Swing Bridge over the Latrobe River at Sale. All paddle activities are weather dependent and venue subject to change at the discretion of the Paddle Co-ordinator.

Please register for paddling activities no later than the Wednesday midday prior to a paddle.  The Paddle Coordinator will confirm with those registered on the Wednesday evening that the paddle is proceeding and again the day prior to the scheduled paddle once a final weather check has been made.

Please arrive at the paddle venue at least 30 mins prior to departure time.  All paddles depart at 9:30am unless otherwise advised.

Paddle Requirements

Please ensure all your equipment is in working order before the paddle.

All participants must wear shoes whilst paddling, comfortable clothing with due regard for the forecast weather.  Hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, insect repellent, light spray jacket that can go over your life jacket are recommended.  BYO snacks/lunch on the day and at least 600ml of drinking water.  A small basic first aid kit is a recommended piece of paddle equipment.
