THE VILLAGES CANOE
AND KAYAK CLUB

A paddling club for residents of
The Villages, Florida

ABOUT US:

We are a club of canoe and kayak paddlers for residents of The Villages. Read our by-laws and Member Guide. We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at the Colony Cottage Regional Recreation Center at 2:15. Meetings are not held in June, July, and August.  Club paddle outings occur each month throughout the year.

If you are interested in joining our club and you are not sure of your paddling skills, we strongly encourage you to take an introductory kayaking class. Aardvark and Discovery Kayak Tours offer kayaking training courses.    

Our year runs from May 1 through April 30; dues are $15 annually.
