Locomotive Kayaking does kayaking trips predominantly in and around Melbourne, with some weekend trips away to country Victoria. There will also be occasional interstate trips for specific events.
Your organisers are passionate kayakers. We're open to suggestions for other outdoor/adventure sport events.<br> If you're passion is kayaking, join up and we're sure to have an event that will pique your interest.
Now we've done the hard sell; here is the tough love. We are a group for kayakers. If you don't have a kayak and aren't a member of a club, then please don't ask to join; after all, how can you participate? Don't take it personally! Lol. Also, we don't really cater for beginners; we strongly recommend you join a club and build up some experience. We also only accept members who can actually participate. Don't take it personally! Our trips also require a certain standard of equipment; basic 'sit-on-top' kayaks (such as the cheap ones from places like Anaconda) will simply not handle Bass Strait, or a fast-flowing Goulburn River. They also will struggle with extended day trips. We recommend you use a proper touring kayak, sea kayak or even a TK for river trips.
We also don't do kayak fishing trips. If you have a fishing kayak, you are welcome to join; we can help you schedule a few trips for your fellow kayak-fishers.
A list of canoeing/kayaking clubs is available at http://vic.canoe.org.au/myclub/tools/nattree.asp . Some clubs allow you to borrow their equipment upon you reaching a certain standard, so if you have roof racks, you may be able to join us on some of our trips.
