Dragon Boat is known worldwide and provides racing on 12.66 meter long and 1.06 meter wide standard boats with a dragon shaped head and tale. These boats are piloted by 20 athletes at the rhythm dictated by the drummer. They use paddles between 1.05 and 1.30 meters long and no more than 18 cm wide, while the helmsman at the stern of the boat tracks the route with an oar about 30 meters long.

The races are now held on the classic distances of 200, 500 and 1,000 metres. The Italian Federation of Dragon Boat, of which Dragon Boat Experience is a part, was born on May 10th 1997 and is the only organization recognized by both the International and the European Federation.

Dragon Boat Experience is specialized in organizing outdoor activities for corporate groups: apart from the specific activities carried out by Dragon Boat, they are specialised in Polynesian canoe, rafting and canoeing in general, as well as all those sports activities that are considered particularly suitable for team building. Companies are attracted by the remarkable involvement shown by participants, the spectacular aspects related to the events themselves, the image of team sports, the opportunity to sponsor boats and shows in a vast area and also the considerable interest shown by the mass media.
