The Tampa Bay Paddling Club is organized to promote and
foster paddling for leisure and competitive sport in the Bay Region.
We welcome paddlers age 15 and up of all fitness levels to
join us at regular practices on the Hillsborough River and Channelside
District in downtown Tampa.
Some of our members paddle just for fun. Most like to
participate in races which take place throughout Florida each year, and
many travel to regattas in many other states as well.
Dragon boat races range in length from 200 meters to 500
meters for sprints, 2000 meters for a 10-12 minute duration race - but
plenty of other distances are gaining popularity as the sport evolves
We provide the dragonboat, paddles, and personal flotation
The Tampa Bay Paddling Club is the home of the Tampa Bay
