Chinatown’s showboat is an energetic recreational dragon boat team determined to have lots of fun, raise funds for charity and promote the community. We include paddlers of all ages from within the community and throughout Ottawa.

The team paddles in the annual Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival.

Throughout the year we help organize various community events to raise money for the Ottawa Dragon Boat Foundation. 

In addition to our various fundraising and social events, we practice once a week in spring and summer. 

Interested in meeting new friends, trying a new sport and giving back to your community?  We’re looking for enthusiastic people to join us ! No previous paddling experience necessary.
