Vancouver Whitewater Club
For All things Whitewater...
The Vancouver Whitewater Club (VWC) is a non-profit volunteer organization of whitewater enthusiasts who organize trips, training and educational meetings for paddlers in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. We offer introductory training for beginner whitewater kayakers but welcome all disciplines of whitewater paddling, so bring your Canoe, Kayak, Raft, Sup or Inflatable Unicorn and join us on the river
Why Paddle With Us?
Whitewater paddling is both fun and challenging, and is a great way to experience remote and beautiful areas of our country. We welcome new paddlers to join our activities whether they be a beginner or experienced, young or not so young. Please feel free to contact one of our executive members or trip organizers for more information.
