Olympic Peninsula Paddlers (OPP) is a club for sea kayakers, white water paddlers, rafters, canoeists, and those using any other paddle-powered watercraft. We are a diverse group united by our love of paddling. Our membership ranges from people just beginning in the sport to experts in Greenland-style rolling and in surf kayaking, from members looking to purchase their first boat to those who have built their own stitch-and-glue or skin-on-frame kayak.
We hold monthly club meetings from September through June. We have monthly club paddles each month of the year except December, when we have our club Christmas party. Monthly pool sessions occur eight times a year, to practice skills or learn new ones. One group of our membership paddles Port Angeles Harbor early every Friday morning, and another enjoys paddles across the Olympic Peninsula each Monday.
Joining OPP offers you the opportunity to network with other paddlers with similar interests, to learn more about paddling through clinics and workshops, to take advantage of discounts at local paddling stores, and to participate in fun events like club paddles, potlucks, and more. OPP’s website provides a calendar of events, trip reports, a photo gallery, and handy website links. If you are interested in joining OPP, please go to our Membership Information page.
