Hello dear members - Paypal recently implemented new "account verification" requirements, which has resulted in us being locked out of our account.  We are as frustrated about this as you may be, and are working on fixing it!  You may have noticed the Paypal buttons below don't work -- for now, please send us an e-transfer at info@skgabc.com, and include a note in the memo line what it is for.  If this doesn't work for you, please email info@skgabc.com to work out another option!  Sorry about that.  Thanks for your support.

The Sea Kayak Guides Alliance of BC accepts credit card and debit payments for membership through Paypal. The buttons below will direct you to the secure Paypal website where you can make payments to the SKGABC.

Please remember to save the final page of the Paypal payment as your receipt and confirmation of payment.
