Dragon boating is a unique way to improve your fitness while having fun with a like-minded, supportive team. Enjoy a solid low-impact cardio and strength workout every time you hit the water. With numerous local and national competitions throughout the season, dragon boating is ideal for thrill-seekers who love the rush of racing. At the Griffins we aim to be competitive without sacrificing our basic values of inclusiveness, mutual respect, encouragement and good-humoured participation.
