Located on the shore of beautiful Lake Pupuke, the North Shore Canoe Club offers access to one of New Zealand’s iconic lakes as a premier training and recreational paddling waterway. The clubroom upstairs offers social facilities including a hall, kitchen and toilets. The clubroom is available for members use and private function hire.

Downstairs, the club has a boat shed which offers kayak storage facilities for both members’ private kayaks and club equipment. Storage space is limited, and is offered to members on a waiting list basis, as and when storage bays become available. The club also offers its members change room facilities in the boat shed including hot showers and toilets.

Access to the premises is by security swipe tag only, will be granted upon acceptance of membership. Your swipe tag is individual and allowing non-members access to the club using your security access tag is considered a serious breach of the club rules and offending members face expulsion from the club.


The majority of North Shore Canoe Club’s activity  surrounds flat-water sprint  kayaking, where members paddle Olympic class and other racing kayaks. The club also caters to a significant number of multi-sport and recreational paddlers.

The club’s boat shed notice board, Facebook page and regular emails promote club activities but throughout the year the club offers:

•    Training Squads

Training squads offer serious paddlers the opportunity to train in groups, following a structured training programme, delivered by the club coaches.

Our squads range from beginners who often start about the age of 10 or 11 years, through development as juniors and novices, to U23, Open and Masters at both social and elite levels. We love to see paddlers out on the water building their skills, gaining confidence in races, supporting each other through their training and working in unison in our team boats.

To obtain more information about joining a training squad please contact the Club Coach on or see the club notice board / newsletters / website for details.

•    Individual Training & Recreational/Social Groups

There are a number of individual training and recreational or social paddling groups within the club. If you would like to join one of these groups or start your own, please contact the club secretary regarding using the club notice board / newsletters / website for getting in touch with other members for this purpose.

•    Competition

North Shore Canoe Club members compete in a number of regional and national competitions and regattas throughout the year. These are a great way to challenge yourself and to meet other paddlers from around the country. If you are interested in competing at any of these please let the Club Coach know. Watch the club notice board / newsletters / website for event updates.

•    Social Events

From time to time the club hosts social club events for members and their families such as BBQ’s, weekly winter race series etc. Watch the club notice board / newsletters / website for more information.
