Early Bird Team Registration until January 15: $800.00

  • Must be paid in full via credit card or check by January 15.

Regular Team Registration (no fees for team members): $1,000.00

  • I'm paying the team's registration fee online via credit card. 
  • I'm mailing a check to DBC within one week of registration. If DBC does not receive the payment, my team will be deleted from the roster. The check will be mailed to: 1643 Savannah Hwy, #261, Charleston SC 29407.

Paddler Registration: No Fees for paddlers.

  • My team's registration has already been paid by Company or Captain.
  • My team captain has sent me a promo code so I don't need to pay a registration fee.

Each Paddler pays for their own registration: $50.00 

  • I am paying my own way to start/join this team.
  • My teammates will also pay their own way.
  • I understand that this payment does NOT INCLUDE my fundraising commitment. It is for boat and equipment registration only.
  • I will register as a Teammate and select my team from the drop down menu.

Registration Fees cover insurance costs, non-refundable rental deposits, and fees needed to conduct the event including permits, boats, life vests, paddles and on-land equipment. While we will not provide refunds if a team feels it must drop out, we will issue refunds (minus transaction fees) in the event that we determine we must cancel for any reason by March 15. The donations that paddlers bring in support DBC's mission programs. As a donation to our 501c3, your support keeps us afloat all year long. Donations are non-refundable. Thank you!

What Our Paddlers Are Saying About DBC

  • Lynda, Cancer Survivor
    "I had no idea when I started paddling with DBC that it would become an essential part of my life. What started as having fun on the water in 2003 blossomed into a network of friends and a support group that kept me sane as I underwent surgery and chemo in 2005 and again in 2007. It’s an escape from the horrors of cancer, where I am accepted whether I am strong or weak."
    Lynda, Cancer Survivor
  • Belinda, Cancer Survivor
    "DBC provides a community that accepts everyone where they are physically, as well as emotionally, and allows them to fully participate in a true sport as a team member. Paddling provides a positive challenge for physical and emotional growth, combined with the beauty of the outdoors and just plain fun. It’s good medicine."
    Belinda, Cancer Survivor
  • Gene, Cancer Survivor
    "Having cancer revealed my physical vulnerability, produced great fear, and threatened my mortality. DBC enhances my physical strength and makes me fearless. The peacefulness of the water, the drum beating in time with my heart, and the communion between paddlers who have all faced a fearful foe, makes me feel immortal."
    Gene, Cancer Survivor
  • Lois
    "Water is an integral part of the Lowcountry. Getting outside to exercise is important for physical health and mental well-being. A person who has had surgery, been stuck in the infusion room or under a radiation machine (cut, poisoned and burned) doesn’t feel like doing anything. It sucks the strength from a person. You feel that you will never feel human again. You feel ruined. Dragon boating is an opportunity to get outdoors and become one with your body again. You start to feel like maybe you can overcome the cancer toll. You note your surroundings and realize what a great lifestyle the Lowcountry has. The exercise helps build your stamina and brightens your outlook on the future."
