Where else does Hawaii meet the Ottawa River? Come experience the thrill of paddling an outrigger canoe on the Ottawa River to discover this Polynesian paddling sport. The Ottawa River provides some fantastic conditions for Outrigger paddling. From our beautiful riverfront location on the Ottawa River, participants will have the opportunity to develop their paddling skills.
Join one of the ORCC Outrigger boats or create your own crew and experience the energy of a big boat in a fun and friendly environment.
Love getting to know people, being part of a team, spending the beautiful Ottawa summers on the river but not keen on competing? Check out the ORCC's recreational Outrigger Canoe program (OC6) and spend Wednesday evenings and/or Saturday mornings on the river!
This is an uncoached program however participants will be accompanied by a seasoned OC6-er who will help lead the way and act as the steersperson. OC6 is a great way to enjoy the Ottawa River in a stable but speedy large boat. Each session lasts 1-2 hours depending on weather, energy levels, and practice plans and you're guaranteed to get off the water not only refreshed from the fresh air and exercise but also with a smile on your face that is bound to happen after spending an evening/morning paddling on the river with your new friends!
