Dragon Boating

Get your mates together and give Dragon Boating a go this summer!

An ancient sport originating in China, is now a worldwide team sport! The New Zealand Dragon Boat season runs from October to April with some teams then racing overseas during the New Zealand winter. 

With social and competitive options available, 10 or 20 person boats and 4 different race distance's from 200m to 2km, Dragon Boating has something for everyone.

If you are new to the sport, we suggest you attend a ‘Give It A Go’ session first (not compulsory). If you have paddled before you are welcome to join a club training.

Boats, paddles and life jackets are all supplied, as well as land-based teaching. In fact all you need to bring, is yourself, a bottle of water and a change of clothes.
