South Niagara Canoe Club

Your Destination For Paddling Sports

Dragon boat is for adults of all ages, genders, and fitness levels. It is a team sport with crews up to twenty paddlers. If you have never paddled a dragon boat, you are encouraged to attend FREE Learn to Paddle sessions on  Saturdays.

We are following the guidelines of Niagara health professionals, our Safety Officer and Dragon Boat Canada. We are optimistic that our 2021 on-water Dragon Boat programs will proceed, albeit with modifications and a late start.
