Edmonton Canoe Group

This website is meant mainly to give you an idea of what we do, it has the framwork of our group.

Not many of us take photos on paddles, we are enjoying ourselves too much.

Founded in 1983 now celibrating 30 years of introducing newcomers to our sport. 

The canoe group was founded in Edmonton North London and now meets regularly at Herts Young Mariners Base (HYMB) in Cheshunt Hertfordshire (EN8 9AJ). The club is affiliated to the British Canoe Union (BCU) and has a team of fully qualified coaches to help you enjoy your visit and show you how to paddle safely.

We have an enthusiastic group of members of all ages who enjoy paddling with us. There is something for everyone from gentle trips exploring the quite lakes and streams in the Lee Valley to daytrips to the Sea.  For the more adventurous you can try the thrills of whitewater with visits to mountain rivers and the Olympic white water course at Waltham Abbey.

We specialise in introducing beginners and families who want to learn how to paddle.  We can also setup special sessions for groups, if you have a youth group or group of friends at work contact us and discuss what you would like to do. Birthday partys are always good fun.

Come along, meet us and see how much fun being on the water can be. Bring a towel, change of clothes & footwear that will get wet.
