Bideford canoe club is an active family friendly canoe club based in North Devon. We make the most of our local facilities with regular kayak surfing, white water paddling as well as coastal and flat water river touring. The club is active throughout the whole year and is always keen to welcome new members.

The club welcomes all ages, with a general minimum of ten years, as anyone younger does not fit the equipment we have on offer. Family membership is always a popular choice. Introductory work is done with winter indoor pool sessions, summer evening courses and weekend trips throughout the year. The main activities are kayak and wave-ski surfing, sea kayaking and both flat and white water river trips. Levels range from absolute beginners to expert. Many people are willing to help bring on your skills and confidence, done through training on both a formal and informal basis.


If you would be interested in joining us why not get in touch to find out more and arrange to come along on an appropriate activity. Alternatively please feel free to take a look around the site and find out a bit more about who we are and what we do.
