Welcome to Team AKC.

Who are we?

Aberdeen Kayak Club, founded in 1976, is one of the focal points for the development of Canoe-sport in the North East of Scotland. It is primarily involved in recreational river paddling, on both quiet backwaters and foaming rapids. Competitively, we partake in the competitive discipline of Slalom.

For the Competitive

AKC has a team of Canoe Slalom athletes with some competing in the countries highest division. The sport is similar to Ski Slalom but on a river, with competitors navigating a series of gates down a river. AKC also competes in local Canoe Polo competitions periodically.

For the Adventurous

Winter trips target the more experienced paddler and include visits to the more technical sections of local waters. Should you wish to try something different there is always helpful advice and tips available from senior and experienced paddlers. Take a look at our club calendar to find out about up and coming trips and activities.

For the Explorer

Summer trips include the opportunity to develop skills in the surf at local North East beaches as the rivers drop to low summer levels. Summer also gives us an opportunity to explore the sea, coves and caves south of Stonehaven with a chance to see close up views of many varieties of birds and sometimes seals.
