Dragon boats are essentially gigantic canoes that differ from classic canoes in terms of their size and unique appearance. They owe their origin to the Asian continent and the cultural space there, where the history of rowing competitions held with them goes back as far as the ancient Olympic Games in Ancient Greece.
Full-size dragon boats are giant canoes with 20+2 seats, where riders sit side by side in pairs, rowing with oars, one on one side and the other on the other side. In addition to the oarsmen, the boat crew includes a helmsman and a beat drummer who ensures the rowing rhythm.
We welcome you on the dragon boat trip as a group of up to 40 people. The dragon boat is a safe, wide-bottomed base, providing the stability that will please even the most cautious hiker. The location of the hike can be chosen according to the customer’s wishes because boat transport from our side is possible anywhere throughout Estonia. At the same time, it must be remembered that the length of the boat including the tail and horns is about 12 meters, which means that every pond and the stream-sized winding river is not suitable for driving it. For our part, we recommend coming for an adventure with dragon boats on the Pirita River, where the stops on the tour include, for example, the Soviet-era underground secret naval command center and the Pirita Monastery.
If desired, the adventure can be finished with a picnic in nature, which includes grilling grilled sausage on the fire and a delicious hiking drink.
Feel free to contact us so that we can answer any questions you may have and put together an adventure that meets your wishes!
