Adrenalin-fueled whitewater, serene mountain lakes, meandering rivers – the inland northwest has it all, and the Spokane Canoe and Kayak Club offers the perfect way to experience all of them. Dedicated to promoting paddling of all types – canoes, kayaks (whitewater, sea, recreational) rafts, even paddle boards – the SCKC welcomes all paddlers of non-motorized craft.
If you’re new to our area, check out our calendar for an idea of the kinds of group adventures we offer. Look over the paddling clinics information. Archived issues of our former monthly newsletter, Eddy Line, will give you a taste of the information contained within the “Members” pages of this site. You’re welcome to join us on a Wednesday evening whitewater paddle or a Thursday evening flatwater paddle to get a taste of the activities we offer. (These paddles have been suspended for the winter. Check the calendar in the spring to see when they’ll resume.) Once you see the fun and friends that await you on the water with the Spokane Canoe and Kayak Club you’ll want to join. It’s quick and easy!
If you’re already a member of the SCKC, go to the Members page and log in to read about upcoming events, issues of safety, conservation and access that affect paddlers and our beautiful inland northwest waters, and to share trip reports and photos with fellow paddlers.
