Whether it’s fighting for control in the ocean with a following sea, gliding quietly along a river or feeling your heart leap with fear and excitement as you take the drop on a wave, kayaking is addictive and fun
We used to have regular weekend club paddles that would introduce you to all aspects of this addictive sport. Club paddles were led by experienced paddlers who supported the safety of the group. Some of our club members still are paddle instructors
Paddling a sea kayak over open water makes you feel at one with nature…
…respecting the power of the ocean!
Always someone new to see

White Water Paddling
Paddling a kayak through fast moving and challenging water is a blast. MPC helped beginners who wanted to master white water paddling skills and intermediate paddlers looking to progress. We visited local rivers when rains or irrigation releases deliver to paddle grade 1-3 rapids.
Gettin' the Gang back together…
The coast of WA has some great surf breaks that are suitable for various standards and types of kayak. Many of the places we surf are reef breaks and we are often joined on the waves by the local wildlife (dolphins and sea lions).

Not just for short boats…
Develop your kayaking skills with our enthusiastic and experienced paddlers. We run regular sessions through the year covering a wide range of topics including assisted and unassisted rescues, recovery techniques and rolling. At the start of the white water season, we run familiarisation sessions in ‘friendly’ swift water environments to wash off those cobwebs.
We also arrange outings suitable for less confident paddlers. The Mandurah Canals and the Swan River are popular destinations for such events.
The club organises 3-4 weekends away thoughout the year. As well as a great opportunity to paddle new water with a bunch of mates there are usually other activities happening including mountain biking, walking and ocassionally some rock climbing to counter the effects of delicious food and the odd glass of red or other indulgences. The weekend trips are also usually suitable for non-paddling partners with alternate activities available.
