E komo mai! Welcome!

The Benicia Outrigger Canoe Club is a warm and welcoming family of paddlers from the charming city of Benicia, California located on the shores of the Carquinez Strait. With roots in ancient Polynesia, outrigger canoe paddling is a fun way to exercise and enjoy the beauty of nature with other people who love the water. Whether you are a beginner or experienced paddler, we have a seat for you in the canoe.
