Space Coast Paddlers, Inc. is a canoeing and kayaking club in East Central Florida. We meet the third Wednesday of every month at the Eau Gallie Public Library on Pineapple Avenue just north of Eau Gallie Boulevard and east of US1 in Melbourne. New members are always welcome!
We sponsor a number of events every month, from short morning and evening trips to longer camping trips. You don't need to be an expert to join us -- many of our members are new boat owners. Everyone from beginners to experts will enjoy our variety of flat water and even occasional whitewater trips. People in the club come from all walks of life and just about every age group is represented. We join together because we love to paddle!
Below is a partial list of some of
the upcoming Stand Up Paddle (SUP), Canoe, Kayak and Outrigger Canoe events. To find
