Dragon Boats

Every year, we have the opportunity to teach first-time paddlers the amazing sport of Dragon Boat. One of the greatest things about Dragon Boat, and why we are so passionate about it is that it’s the one truly team sport. Success in the boat is defined by synchronicity of all paddlers performing at their best, at the exact moment in time. Learning and coming together as a team takes practice. Our coaches are very experienced paddlers who can help your team be successful on the water! They will teach you the correct technique, help your team synchronize the stroke, and give you that race experience. Anyone can paddle a dragon boat!


If your group members would prefer a little independence, paddling our Canoes & Kayaks can be done as a solitary experience (or with a partner).  Learn the proper strokes, how to maneuver your watercraft and more.

Our sessions range from 2 hours and up.

With your booking, your team(s) will be provided:

  • All the necessary equipment (life jackets, paddles, boats)
  • On-land training (go over the catch, pull, recovery and setup of the stroke)
  • Access to change rooms and washrooms in the Manitoba Canoe and Kayak Centre
  • Steersperson/Coach (help to develop your team on the water through a series of drills and races)
  • Tables for team lunches, access to BBQ (upon request)
