Outrigger Training

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. Please register at the tab below for one of the coached training sessions.

Spend Thursday evening and/ or Saturday morning on the river paddling OC6. These are uncoached session. Please register below to be included in the boat.

Paddles and life jackets are available at the club.  Huli training is also mandatory for this group.

Can't Get Out With Your Dragon Boat Team Because of COVID?

OC6 is a much safer option

Ottawa River Canoe Club is the only place in town where you can rent OC6's.  We have 3 OC6s available to rent, which can accommodate almost an entire dragon boat team.

Teams can book 1 hour practice sessions during evenings or weekends. Or consider our team training packages of 5 or 10 sessions which include video analysis. 

Of course you don't have to be a dragon boater to enjoy the fun of an OC6; ORCC offers team OC6 training as well. The boat rental is $70 (+HST) per hour. There are additional coaching fees of $45/$35/or$30 (+HST) per hour, depending on if you would like to book a senior/junior/or development coach.

  • Booking 5 coached sessions will include 1 video session
  • Booking 10 coached sessions will include 2 video sessions

ORCC OC6 COVID Policy Addendum

ORCC has created an addendum to our general Club Covid Policy, which can be found at this link.  This policy must be followed for all OC6 crews training out of ORCC.


The ORCC requires a signed waiver from each paddler prior to going on-water.  Click here to download the ORCC waiver
