The Kent Island Outrigger Canoe Club (KIOCC) is dedicated to the great sport of Hawaiian outrigger canoe racing and perpetuating the Hawaiian culture and spirit through outrigger canoeing.  Our club is made up of experienced and novice paddlers who work hard to combine an appreciation for family, nature, community, and competitiveness while having tons of fun.

The club is located at the Kent Island Yacht Club in Chester, Maryland. We invite you to join us for a practice paddle during the week or on a weekend. Explore our website or contact us to find out more about KIOCC and how you can get involved.

about us


Founded in 1997, the Kent Island Outrigger Canoe Club (KIOCC) has one of the finest venues for paddling on the East Coast, with easy access to the eastern Chesapeake Bay.

Welcome to the outrigger club!

At Kent Island Outrigger Canoe Club, we love being on the water.

And, as far as we're concerned, nothing beats the rush you get from

getting a really big canoe moving with six paddlers.  If you're anything

like us, after your first time out, you'll be hooked. Whether you're

interested in racing, getting fit, or just experiencing a good time on the water, we're where you want to be.
