Kelowna Dragon Boat Club 22 Hearts Beating As One since 2000

The Kelowna Dragon Boat Club KDBC formed in 1999 to promote fun and fitness through the sport of Dragon Boating and to make it available to the community at large. The KDBC provides a venue through which beginner to intermediate paddlers can learn and train. A Dragon Boat team consists of 20 paddlers, a drummer and a steerer.

If you do not have enough members to make up a full team, we will help find enthusiastic members to join you! Paddling times can be booked for any day of the week, any time of the day; mornings, or evenings.
