You do need to be age 12 or above but anyone under 18 needs to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

If you’re keen to come along, send us an email letting us know which session you’re aiming for.

When do you train?

From Saturday 24 June 2017 we will be training from 8.30am on Saturdays, from our base at the Community Hub in Docklands, Melbourne.

What to bring:

  • You will be in a boat and there will be lots of splashing, so wear old clothes and shoes, as they will get wet
  • A change of warm clothes and towel (we have hot showers at the Boat Hub)
  • Water bottle, sunscreen, sports cap or beanie, sunglasses (salt water)

What is provided:

  • Basic technique training
  • Paddle
  • PFD (Personal Floatation Device)
  • Fun

Who do I ask for?

When you arrive at training ask for our friendly captains Emily or Thom. After you read and sign a waiver (of course) they will kit you up, give you a safety briefing, introduce you around and help get you on the water!

Where are you located?
