What is Dragon Boat racing?

Dragon boating is a fun-filled, adrenaline pumping, water sports activity. Teams compete in Dragon Boats, which are large canoe-like vessels fitted with ornately carved dragon's heads and tails.

Dragon boating truly is the ultimate sport for all abilities and no previous experience is required.
