Recreational DragonBoat Team

6. How Much Will Dragon Boating Cost Me?

With Alameda Dragon Flyers, the first three outings are free. After that, you’ll be asked to join the team at an annual fee of $175. This covers the cost of the boats, insurance, paddles and personal flotation devices. Race fees are an additional but reasonable amount and are spread over the racing season.


3. What Equipment Do I Need to Get Started?

For that first practice, you’ll want:

  • Quick-dry clothing appropriate to the weather. (No jeans or sweats.)
  • Sunscreen
  • Water bottle
  • Sneakers or water sandals

In addition to the boats, we will provide you with paddles and PFD for use during practices and race days.



2. How Much Paddling Experience Do I Need?

None! Many of our team members hadn’t had any previous boating experience before they joined. The basic basic paddling stroke is easy to learn – and challenging to master.
