If you'd like to try dragon boating, please contact us. Participate in our ongoing practices, races, special events and outings, or just getting together for fun, excitement and adventures. Trips, events and races around the Pacific Northwest, up and down the West Coast or around the world.  It's totally up to you.

Dragon Boat racing is the fastest growing team sport in the world, with over 50 million paddlers and growing. While there is plenty to do, from helping to prepare the boats, to getting the crews safely in and out of the boats, to actually paddling in a race, or helping out at the start 
and finish lines.  Racing is where the paddles really hit the water. You'll have the opportunity to go to 6 - 8 races annually, or just a couple, or none at all. Like we said it's entirely your choice. First three practices to try us out are FREE! Drop by one of our practices or email us ahead of time.
