Bay Association of Sea Kayakers was formed in the mid 1990s and at last count at the 2015 AGM has 105 members enjoying fortnightly trips on the sea, lakes and rivers in the Bay of Plenty region and further afield.

Our members range in age from early 20's through to 70+.

We have training days for skills/rescues and surf landings and these are free to members.

We have a quarterly calendar trip programme which includes day, overnight, weekend and longer trips with the club.  Check our News page for the latest update.

There is also the opportunity for BASK members  to participate in privately organised trips to places such as d'Urville Island, Malborough Sounds, Great Barrier Island and further afield through our club network.

Our annual joining fee is only $25 for a single or $40 per couple / family. Fees are due July 1st each year.

Many of our members also belong to NZ's National kayaking body KASK (Kiwi Association of Sea Kayakers). Check out their website and those of other like-minded clubs using the links below.

Check out our Photo Gallery. All were taken by members on club trips and training days. Also feel free to read the reports on club trips and training days that members have written.  Latest news and trip info too on our "News" page.

See our constitution for details in the BASK docs page.
And we also have a Facebook page which has lots more photo's on for you to look at.
