Welcome to Houston Canoe and Kayak Racing.

Houston Texas is a great place for canoe and kayak racing.


There are bayous, bays, rivers, and lakes around and through the city.


These are home to kayak, canoe, Dragon Boat, outrigger, and surfski races year round.


All these races are different, reflecting the type of boat and water chosen for the event.  Some are short lasting 3 minutes and some last over 2 hours.


Take your pick for a fun and challenging experience in your canoe or kayak.
