Outrigger Canoe

Enjoy paddling in a 6-person outrigger canoe on the Willamette River

Pretend you're in Hawaii

Did you know that you don't have to be a member of a dragon boat team to enjoy paddling in a 6-person outrigger canoe?
It's true. We usually have two canoes available for rental, as long as the steers person is Certified by DragonSports USA.
New Teams Welcome
You don't have to be a member of a dragon boat team to create your own OC team.
Year-Round Paddling
Unless we're doing maintenance, both canoes are available all year.
Great Exercise
Two hours of paddling an outrigger up the Willamette will burn a ton of calories.
Amazing Fun
While some teams may be competitive, most are out there every week for the exercise and friendship.
