Peterhead is a small town of about 18,000 population on the north east coast of Scotland, 35 miles north of Aberdeen. Peterhead Canoe Club runs several weekly activities for anyone who wishes to take part. We do white-water canoeing and kayaking, sea kayaking, marathon kayaking and kayak surfing. We have plenty BCU qualified coaches who are always willing to help anyone who wishes to take up canoeing or kayaking as an activity, so why not come along and give it a try? We also have good contacts with other canoe and kayak clubs in Scotland so if there is any other aspect of canoeing that you would really like to get into just ask.
During the winter we have weekly sessions at Peterhead swimming pool on Friday evenings. During summer months we are at Peterhead Lido on Friday evenings from 18.00. Anyone is free to join the club from school age up and the membership fees are very reasonable. Come along to one of our Friday evening sessions to try before you buy.
There is usually a Sunday river trip and we try to cater for all skill levels to suit the demand. This means there may be a beginners trip one weekend followed by a more advanced trip the next.
Our social organiser, Donna, has a packed programme of off-the-water activities which include dances, ceilidhs, paintballing, bowling, meals, even shopping trips etc. Non-paddling partners and friends are always welcome at these events.
