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 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, kayak 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.
Our club is run by volunteer members. Our member base consists of people of all ages and includes singles, couples and families. We currently have about 180 members in the Houston/Galveston area and beyond. Our trips and skill levels range from beginner to experienced.
Our club meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month and are open to the public. At the meeting we socialize, discuss where we've paddled, upcoming trips and have a guest speaker present topics of interest to the club.
Prior to the meeting, we meet for dinner at a nearby restaurant where we get to know new attendees and visit. All guests are welcome to attend the dinner and meeting.
