Welcome to the Houston Canoe Club (HCC). We are a group of multi-faceted canoers and kayakers who have a shared interest in all types of paddle sports that include, but are not limited to; whitewater, flat water, touring, racing and stand up paddling. We paddle the bayous, lakes, rivers, streams and Gulf shores of Texas and the United States. We offer a variety of trips including day trips, weekend trips, overnight camping trips and expedition trips.
The HCC was established in 1964 when a group of interested canoeists got together and talked of organizing a canoe club. The rest is history.
The club is run by volunteer members. Our member base consists of people of all ages and includes singles, couples and families.
We currently have about 130 members in the Houston-Galveston area and beyond.
Our trips and skill levels range from beginner to experienced, and from day trips of a few hours to week-long expeditions.
Club Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM
We socialize, discuss where we've paddled, review upcoming trips and have guest speakers present topics of interest to the club.
CLUB MEETINGS WILL BE VIRTUAL UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Check our calendar and Forum for updated information.
NEXT MEETING JULY 8, 2020
Celeste Silling, Education & Outreach Manager with the Gulf Coast Bird Observatory, will discuss how and why biologists research birds. In particular, she will focus on how researchers monitor birds both by land and kayak.
