Paddlers have access to kayak, stand-up board, canoe and all necessary gear. Those 14 to 17 years of age can paddle on their own with parent/guardian permission. Those under 14 have to be accompanied by an adult member.

When you join TRPC as a paddling member you are able to enjoy all that the club offers: from our floating dock specific to paddling, to our washroom, shower, fridge and boat storage facilities (at additional cost) in the boat house and for shelter on those less than ideal days.

Regular group paddles with other opportunities, to get on the water, during Open Hours (see boathouse schedule All events are listed on the Events page.

During Open Hours members may sign out equipment and go out independently on the Trent River or Bay of Quinte, launching from and returning to the T.R.P.C. dock.

Members may invite non-members to join them during open hours. The member and guest(s) must be paddling together. The individual cost for guests is $20 (flat fee) during open hours.

Training through Paddle Canada approved instructors is sometimes available at additional cost. TRPC also has a unique in house program to develop its own members who want to increase their own paddling skills through Paddle Canada courses.
