About Us

Flamin’ Dragons Port Macquarie Inc. is a club that caters for men and women of all ages, levels of fitness and degrees of competitiveness. We currently have over 100 registered members ranging in age from 12 to 82 – some are breast cancer survivors, some are survivors of other cancers, some have different medical conditions, and many others are fit and healthy. For Flamin’ Dragons it makes no difference. Everyone is welcome.

Flamin’ Dragons run as many as ten paddling sessions spread over five days each week. For new members the main training day is Saturday. We meet at the boat ramp near the Marina on Park Street. New members are encouraged to come along at 6:30am for the 7:00am paddling session. Being there a bit early is essential so we can give you some on-land instruction before getting into the boat.
