If you love the ocean and want to stay fit, consider trying outrigger canoeing!

Benefits of Outrigger Canoeing:

  • Paddling is a great workout. Outrigger canoeing is both an aerobic and anaerobic sport — it will improve your cardiovascular fitness and increase your muscle strength.
  • Best of all, paddling is a low-impact exercise. There is a reduced risk of wear and tear on joints and tissues.
  • You will make new friends. We have over 250 active members.
  • Paddling is a great way to enjoy the ocean. You will see amazing ocean wildlife. We often see dolphins, sea lions, and whales.
  • We offer Newcomer Clinics several times each year.  These clinics are a great way to try outrigger canoeing.  Completing a clinic is also a safety requirement before paddling at length in the open ocean where challenging situations may arise unexpectedly.
  • Newcomer Clinics will resume in February 2020, and be held periodically through April, in conjunction with Spring training for OOCC’s upcoming race season
