Outrigger Canoe Trip (OC6) from Newport Aquatic Center
Have you ever paddled in a six person outrigger canoe? Have you ever wanted to give it a try? This is your chance. Join us for a tour around the Newport Bay. Plan to arrive by 11:45 AM. If you are not already a member of NAC, you will need to fill out their release form, and they may request a drivers license. Tell them you will be paddling with Danny Hough's OC6 group. Usually, they will not require any payment for first timers, or for anyone who has rented a kayak or a SUP earlier in the day. Meet us under the canopy by noon to get a paddle and a little instruction, then down to the water to launch. Bring bottled water, but leave valuables at home. You might not want to bring your cellphone, unless you have a water proof case. We recommend sunglasses with a leash, sunscreen, and either water shoes, or bare feet. Some folks also prefer to wear gloves, like cycling gloves, while they're paddling. We'll be out on the water for about 2 hours and will cover 6 - 10 miles. No pets allowed in the boats.

What we're about

Paddling, Hiking and Riding a Bike are three of my favorite things to do. If you're interested in any of these things, please join us and set some goals for the next year. We will have paddling events for stand up paddle boards, kayaks, single person outriggers ("OC1"), and six person outrigger canoes ("OC6"). Our hikes and bike rides will cover beautiful roads and trails throughout Orange County.

Open to all ages. Some events will be for beginners, some for folks with experience. Paddling events will usually start at the Newport Aquatic Center, 1 Whitecliffs, Newport Beach. Rental equipment is available for kayak and stand up paddle board events. Members of NAC also have free access to many types of paddling equipment.
