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.

KDBC Spirit Team

The KDBC Spirit Team competed in this year's Dublin Ireland Dragon Boat Festival in September.  The KDBC Spirit Womens came home with Silver in the Major Final and our KDBC Spirit Mixed came in 2nd in the Minor Final.  It was an amazing experience for all of our paddlers.  If you would like information on becoming apart of the KDBC Spirit Team  please contact [email protected] .

If you have never paddled with us we would love to introduce you to the fastest growing water sport. Sometimes we hold “drop-in” sessions so you can try paddling with all new paddlers.
