Why Paddle?

Dragon boat paddling offers a unique opportunity to engage your employees through a fun team-building activity that people of all ages and fitness levels can take part in. With emphasis on collaboration, communication, commitment and co-ordination, the lessons learned on the water can be taken back to the workplace. Dragon boat paddling can bring out leadership, help develop a sense of pride and accomplishment among participants, and build camaraderie.
