The Outrigger Program runs Tuesday and Thursday evenings and is designed for adults aged 18+ of all skill levels who are looking for a unique paddling experience. Participants typically sign up for either Tuesdays or Thursdays but a twice weekly option is available.

Outrigger style canoeing originated in Hawaii. The “ama” that is attached to the canoe adds support and stability, allowing the boat to handle rougher water conditions. We have two OC-6’s – these large boats require 6 people (5 paddlers, 1 steers-person). Paddlers simultaneously switch sides every 15-20 strokes so they can be more effective over long distances. PRCC’s program offers fun paddling in Frenchman’s Bay or on the high seas of Lake Ontario!

This discipline allows for a team atmosphere but at a smaller scale than dragon boat or war canoe. Outrigger provides great cross-training for competitive dragon boaters looking to spice up their training.


Program runs from May 28 to September 26, 2018, Tues or Thurs 6:30-8:00 p.m.
One session per week is $200 including all taxes and fees.
Two sessions per week is $350 including all taxes and fees.

Package 1: Tuesdays 6:30-8:00 pm ($200)
Package 2: Thursday 6:30-8:00 pm ($200)
Package 3: Tues & Thurs 6:30-8:00 pm ($350)
