April 2024 Club Meeting:  Register Here


Hello, members, the weather is warmer, and the paddling season is heating up again as well. Let's have a gear swap event at this month's general club meeting. If you have paddling gear, from paddles, dry-suits, racks, skirts, to yak(s), or canoe(s), ..., which you have not used for some time in the corner of your storage unit or maybe you have been contemplating buying certain paddling gear, now, this event is for you!

Let’s socialize, after the club business, while we swap and sell gear. Tables will be provided to display your gear. Bring tiedowns in case you buy a boat. Bring cash, prepare for Venmo, or Zelle transactions, or a multiparty swap at the event. Contact Christy Long with questions at

Welcome to the Houston Canoe Club (HCC).  We are a group of multi-faceted canoers and kayakers who have a shared interest in all types of paddle sports that include, but are not limited to; whitewater, flat water, touring, racing and stand up paddling.  We paddle the bayous, lakes, rivers, streams and Gulf shores of Texas and the United States.  We offer a variety of trips including day trips, weekend trips, overnight camping trips and expedition trips. 

The HCC was established in 1964 when a group of interested canoeists got together and talked of organizing a canoe club. The rest is history. 

We currently have about 130 members in the Houston-Galveston area and beyond.

The club is run by volunteer members.  Our member base consists of people of all ages and includes singles, couples and families. 

Our trips and skill levels range from beginner to experienced, and from day trips of a few hours to week-long expeditions.

Club Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM.

We socialize, discuss where we've paddled, review upcoming trips and have guest speakers present topics of interest to the club.
