Default The Villages Canoe and Kayak Club

We are a club of canoe and kayak paddlers for residents of The Villages. We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at the La Hacienda Center at 3:15. We have a club paddle on the 4th Tuesday. During the winter months, we have more paddles to accomodate our snowbird members.

A recent paddle took us the Cedar Key. We stop after paddles for a meal. We have two or three socials per year, as well.

Our web site is http://thevillagespaddlingclub.com

Default Does anyone know of a nearby lake that offers rental kayaks?

We are going to be in The Villages next week and are hoping to go kayaking somewhere---maybe a nearby state park. Any suggestions where we could rent and paddle? Thanks--

My husband wanted to join the Kayak club last winter but was told they were not accepting new members! Are they now accepting new members?

Default Membership Filled?

We too tried to join the Kayaking club here after talking to person at local Rec Center that was taking applications for Lake Miona? rides. Went to Silver Springs today to private party who rents Kayaks and will take and pick you up after aprox 4 hour paddle trip. Would like to meet someone or group who would like to take slow trip headed down river near Silver Springs (or anywhere that rents / delivers). Love to see the outdoors but hate to go alone as my wife thinks a gator is waiting on her so ..... anyone interested? I'm no "expert" but a good way to get to see nature.
If so.... please PM me and I'll respond. Thanks and still trying to get someone from The Villages Kayak Club to call me back....

Apparently there are two "Villages Canoe and Kayak Clubs" The club I belong to has a different url http://vckc.net/

We meet the third Tuesday of the month at the Colony Cottage Regional Recreation Center and have our paddles on the 4th Tuesday.

It is a great club with many interesting activities and paddles with loads of friendly members. I hope to see some of you there.
