Dartmouth Dragon Boat Association

The Dartmouth Dragon Boat Association (DDBA) is a non-profit organization that was established to promote and foster dragon boat paddling within HRM.  DDBA has just wrapped up its eleventh season, and has had its most successful year ever in terms of the programs we offer and the number of participants. There were over 175 participants in its club programs and over 1000 people participated at no charge in its community access programs.  We also offer racing opportunities through our Race League.
