    • Dragon Boating represents one of the coolest Asian cultural activities introduced to the West.  How can you not have fun with 22 people in a 40' long canoe.  Take 20 paddlers a drummer and steerer - and see how they work together towards moving the boat about the waterway! Although the task itself is simple, the process of learning as individuals to become a team holds the challenge and the fun.
    • CURRENT PRACTICES: will follow 2020 protocols. Temp checks, questions, masked at all times, social distancing on land, Only 10 paddlers in a boat.
