Formed many years ago, Dales Canoe Club is based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.  

"Canoe in Safety" is the club's motto and ethos.

We aim to help paddlers develop skills to become safe and proficient in the river environment.  For historical reasons, and due to club facilities, our focus is on closed cockpit kayaks.

Autumn and winter sessions are in a warm swimming pool environment where we welcome both beginners and experienced paddlers.

Our spring/summer sessions are river based and work towards paddlers achieving BCU Star Test awards.

For advanced paddlers, the River Washburn is about 9 miles west of Harrogate.  This is the only dam-release facility in England.

Dales Canoe Club is affiliated to Canoe England, part of British Canoeing.
