The Dartmouth Dragon Boat Association is offering dragon boat sessions for blind and partially sighted individuals who would like the opportunity to get out on the water for fun and fitness. A dragon boat is a 40 foot long boat, with 20 benches. Two paddlers sit on each bench, one on the left, and one on the right. It is a flat bottomed very stable boat. There is a coach/steersperson standing in the back.
For more information, or to let us know you are coming, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a voicemail at (902)469-4425.

An enormous Thank You to all those business owners and individuals who donated to make this years Blind Sports NS Charity Auction our most successful yet!
We raised $5,600. Every dollar will support blind and visually impaired athletes, of all ages & skill levels. We are so grateful and excited to continue growing competitive & recreational sports for all in our communities.
Please bring a bicycle helmet, if you have one, and let us know if you need detailed directions, bus information, or assistance getting from a bus stop to the event location. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions!
How it Works
Tandem biking (on a bicycle for 2), with a pilot, makes getting active in the great outdoors with friends, family, and peers more accessible for individuals with vision loss.
A pilot rides in front, steering, shifting gears, and communicating effectively with the stoker (person riding on the back seat).
Ways to Ride with Us
Loan a Bike – We have 3 tandem bikes available for short & long-term loans to individuals with vision loss. We provide riding and safety instruction and a roster of trained volunteer pilots, or ride with a sighted friend or family member. Please contact us with a minimum of 72 hours notice.
Group Rides – We host group rides and attend community events, too. It’s a fun way to get outdoors and get active and everyone’s welcome!
