Welcome to The Isle of Portland
The Isle of Portland Canoe Club is a
lively, active and friendly club based in a fantastic
location on the
Jurassic Coast of West Dorset. The club is affiliated to
British Canoeing – the Sports Governing Body. The
opportunities for paddling on our doorstep in Dorset are
endless and we are also close to surfing beaches and
The club offers a varied activity
programme throughout the year including open water sea
trips, short coastal paddles, surfing and white-water trips.
The club welcomes paddlers over the
age of 18. Complete beginners are required to attend a
training course to meet an equivalent standard of BCU 2
star. It is not necessary to gain the award. Please contact
us regarding this training. In the winter months we can
carry out our own assessments on new members at an indoor
pool at Bridport and in the the summer months we use the
safe waters of Portland Harbour.
This friendly open club has a diverse
membership and welcomes new members who are interested in
paddling for fun and fitness and to enjoy the experience in
