Fairway Gorge Paddling Club

Unlike their mythical namesake, dragon boats don't actually breathe fire, but they're just as spectacular. The ornately appointed human-powered water crafts, which harken back to ancient Chinese tradition, are often hand carved to resemble Chinese dragons in both their vibrant colors and large size, as they seat 20. Paddling a dragon boat can help any group develop a sense of teamwork, whether they're athletes preparing for a race or coworkers on an office excursion.

The team at Fairway Gorge Paddling Club can confirm. They board dragon boats for recreational jaunts and during competitive races that attract thousands of spectators. The club offers members other paddling vessels, too, such as rental kayaks and stand-up paddleboards.
