Welcome to Haverfordwest Kayak Club


"The judges were impressed by the wide variety of activities offered to members and the jam-packed calendar of events, along with the efforts that the club has made to reach out to underrepresented groups and to grow the number of female coaches. They were also impressed with the club's role in the community, including volunteering to support other sporting events with safety cover. Overall, it was evident that Haverfordwest Kayak Club is a model club which has had an incredibly busy and exciting 2017."


Here you will find details of club activities, committee members, information on paddling, photos of past events and trips plus links to other sites of interest.

We are a friendly and active kayaking club, formed in 2002. New members, of all ages and abilities, are always welcome. The club is affiliated to the sport’s governing body, which is Canoe Wales, and we currently have a membership of about 90 people.

The club aims to make everyone’s experience of kayaking/canoeing a safe and enjoyable one. Whether you are brand new to the sport and looking to learn new skills, an experienced paddler wanting to improve your existing paddling skills or just looking for a group of people to paddle with, we have qualified coaches and experienced paddlers who can help you achieve this, with good company thrown in for free. We try hard to keep the range of paddling activities varied to ensure there is something to suit everyone.

Here in Pembrokeshire we are lucky to be surrounded by a wonderful variety of paddling opportunities, with some of the best sea kayaking in the UK, white water paddling a little further inland, placid water on a number of river and estuary locations and some great surf beaches.

To find out more please see the "About Us" page and expolre the rest of the site.

If you’d like to join us on the water, then contact the membership secretary – details on the Contact Us page.

We look forward to paddling with you.

As Stuart mentioned we are thinking about a weekend in Llandysul this year. I have booked Llandysul for weekend of the 28th of July and also the Friday night the 27th of July. The weekend is open to all abilities of paddlers, we have booked four Llandysul coaches for the weekend, the weekend is also open to non paddling family members as it is a good to watch and explore and of course the social side.
    The outline cost for the weekend is £45 for paddlers which includes the coaches, accommodation, any kit if required, BBQ on the Saturday night and possible trip / rafting etc. 
    The outline cost for the weekend for non paddlers is £15 which includes accommodation and BBQ on Saturday night.
    The accommodation is either bunk house or camping with full use of bunk house facilities.
    For those who can't make it for the full weekend no worries come for a day or what suits and we can price accordingly.
      Any questions please don't hesitate to ask Brook or Mike.
     Please sign up on the website asap so we can work out number etc. We will be looking at number's about 3 weeks before to assess if there's enough to make it viable to carry on with the weekend.
