Grab Your Paddle!

The Boundary Waters Dragon Boat Club is hosting FREE weekly paddles on Tuesday nights from 6:00 to 7:00 pm during the spring & summer months and we want you to be a part of it! Whether you're from Fort Frances or International Falls, grab your friends & family and come down to enjoy a beautiful paddle along the water front. Just come to the dock by the Hallet, look for our trailer.  We supply a life jacket & paddle and will help you with proper technique and commands. 

Teens ages 13 to 19 years of age paddle FREE on Tuesdays all summer long.

It doesn't matter how fit you are, Dragon Boat is fun for everyone!
