The Yukon Canoe and Kayak Club located in Whitehorse, Yukon was formed in 1961 by Don and Clare Graham as the Yukon Voyageur Club. The name was later changed to the Yukon Canoe and Kayak Club to better reflect the varying paddling styles we do. The club is volunteer based.
What We Offer
We are so fortunate to have the Yukon River flowing through our city which offers varying levels of difficulty. This creates a perfect place to lead our Adult and Youth Programs (or just get away for a lunch-time paddle). We also organize day trips down the Takhini and Wheaton rivers and occasional trips down various other rivers. We also organize an annual whitewater rodeo as well as various downriver races.
During the winter we organise a kayak polo league, drop-in practice sessions, sea kayaking and rolling clinics. Check out our new calendar for dates and descriptions. Please subscribe to our YouTube Channel and add our Google+ page to your circles.
The club has a limited stock of boats and equipment available to members during club events.
