What we're about

The Alamo City Rivermen is a canoe and kayak club in San Antonio, Texas that was founded in 1987. Our members include all age groups, all skill levels, boat types and all types of paddling; flat water, whitewater, slow rivers, fun rivers, coastal bays and estuaries. Some have raced and even participate in the Texas Water Safari. We welcome canoers and kayakers to join us who enjoy and love paddling rivers and being outdoors on the water.

We enjoy doing all types of trips , from easy short day floats on local rivers, to lake paddles, car camping base trips, island camping overnighters or self-outfitted multi-day expedition type wilderness adventures. We traditionally are fond of camping paddle trips, often sharing a communal Dutch oven meal, and are known for our winter annual Freeze Trip. Cynics call us an eating club that paddles. We are also active in community service supporting river conservation, cleanups, Triathlon support and access advocacy. For river trip reports, and other cool stuff, see our website at Alamo City Rivermen (http://www.alamocityrivermen.org/).
