If you are an avid kayaker or canoeist looking to get out and meet others who share your passion, then you have found the right place. The Gold Coast Paddle Club is an easy going group of experienced paddlers from the West Michigan area who enjoy paddling the many rivers Michigan has to offer. We are a very diverse group of boat owners which includes all ages and skill levels with both married and single members. There will be trips planned throughout the year, including camping in the spring/summer/fall and cold water paddles in the dead of winter. This group will have limits set for each paddle/trip based on the size of the river we will be paddling. By setting limits on paddles we have found that the trips run smoother, there is more opportunity for interaction among the members and everyone has a better time. Since we seldom paddle where there are rental services, we welcome all paddlers who own or have access to a kayak or canoe to join Gold Coast Paddle Club. So what are you waiting for? If you have a boat sitting around, dust it off, load it up and let's go paddling!
GCPC does not own, rent or loan out kayaks or paddling gear. You need to provide your own equipment to participate in our activities.
