PADDLE KC KANSAS CITY PADDLING CLUB EVENTS

Join us for Kansas City kayaking, paddleboarding and canoeing!

We love sharing fun experiences around Kansas City and beyond! We host Kansas City kayaking, paddleboarding and canoeing events every month of the year. We welcome paddlers of all types, experience levels, boats or boards, ages, and backgrounds. You MUST OWN your own kayak, paddleboard or canoe to join Paddle KC. Inflateable kayaks are not suitable for many of our events, but inflateable SUPs are a good option. Once you join Paddle KC, you’ll receive invitations to all our activities for new and experienced paddlers.

Membership is $20 annually which includes a 30 day free trial for you to check our past and upcoming events, and get a feel for our paddling club. Members receive invitations to frequent local paddling events, learning opportunities, unique adventures, bucket list trips, online presentations, and discounts on gear and events. This small membership fee helps us cover group costs, and filters in those who join to participate. We’re ALL about getting out on the water together to enjoy a wide variety of paddling experiences, learn, and build friendships along the way!
