Dragon Boat

Petrie Island Canoe Club has two Dragon Boat programs. To become a paddler in either program, you do NOT need to be an elite athlete, you simply need the drive and commitment to get out and enjoy yourself; our goal is to promote fun, fitness and friendship.

Recreational Dragon Boat

Recreational dragon boat paddling at the Petrie Island Canoe Club is a really fun individual and team fitness activity! One evening per week from June to August, teams are made up of 22 individuals.

Dragon boat is a great team building activity, invite your friends, family and co-workers to join as well!

  • Monday evenings from 6:30pm to 7:25pm
  • The first session takes place June 27th and the last session will be held on August 15th
  • Make-up sessions due to weather cancellations will be held on Friday evening of the same week
  • Price: $120 per person

* If there is enough interest, we will add a 2nd Recreational Dragon Boat session from 7:30pm to 8:25pm

Competitive Dragon Boat

Competitive dragon boat paddling at the Petrie Island Canoe Club is slightly more demanding than the recreational program with 2 sessions per week running from June to August; teams are made up of 22 individuals.

Dragon Boat is a great team building activity, invite your friends, family and co-workers to join as well!

  • Tuesday & Thursday evenings from 6:30pm to 7:25pm
  • The first session will be held on July 1st, and the last session will be held on August 18th
  • Make-up sessions due to weather cancellations will be held on Friday evening of the same week
  • Price: $200 per person
