These 60-minute sessions give residents the opportunity to try the sport of Dragon Boat in a safe and fun environment at no charge.

Paddlers will enjoy learning about the sport of dragon boating, boat safety, paddling techniques and commands. Following this, paddlers will proceed onto the water in a dragon boat to enjoy a paddle on Barrie?s beautiful Kempenfelt Bay. A Personal Floatation Device and Paddle will be provided. Please arrive 15 mins early for paddler check-in and equipment fitting.
