Welcome to Dragon Boat Charleston (DBC)! Whether you are an experienced paddler, a “newbie,” a cancer-survivor or community paddler, we have a boat for you. Since 2003, DBC has been enjoying the beautiful Ashley River and the ancient Chinese sport of dragon boating. 

DBC has been paddling hard since 2003 with the mission of promoting physical and mental wellness among cancer survivors and their community. DBC members can be seen almost any day of the week on the river, preparing for upcoming races, pushing themselves to physical limits or enjoying the sunset while on a paddling break. DBC participates in 5-6 races per year, has off-season programs like yoga and nutrition and numerous social and recreational gatherings throughout the year. Some call it a “floating support group,” some call it a family. Whatever it is…it’s fun! You’ve got to check it out!  Newbie Paddles meet the first three Saturday's of every month morning at 9am at the Bristol Marina.  Email Meagan at melabriola@gmail.com to sign up.

DBC is supported by the Charleston Dragon Boat Festival and by generous community and business partners, including MUSC, Roper St. Francis Cancer Center, Meadwestvaco, the Bristol Marina, First Federal, Piggly Wiggly, McDonalds, Hanckel Marine, Crews Subaru, Trident Health, Dr. Patrick O'Neil, The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction, and SC Blue.  We are extremely grateful for all of our supporters who make the cancer survivor programs of DBC possible.  Please click on News & Accomplishments for a list of our recent activities.
