Dragon Boat Season has returned – Join us in the ultimate team sport!

Nanaimo Paddling Centre is training for 2022! We are accepting paddlers for both recreational and competitive programs. See you on the water!

No experience necessary, we will train you. All equipment supplied. Everyone is welcome!

Our regular season runs from March to September. Practice schedule is Tuesday/Thursday 5:30pm on water, 5:15pm for team warm up. Saturdays 10:00am optional practice for those that cannot attend both weekday practices or would want more practice.

We train all year round and racing season runs from March through September. Both Women’s and Mixed teams compete in dragon boat festivals all across the Island. (Warning: Racing is addicting!)

Come for a paddle and try us out … your seat is waiting!
