Dragonboat racing, being an Asian sport, is but natural to influence Boracay to have a rowing team ready for competition on international races around the region. Much more, the island hosts the annual Boracay International Dragon Run sometime in month of May or June.

Being at Boracay in the month of April, I have the opportunity to watch the rowing team doing their daily tune-up practice along White Beach. It is very admirable watching the team rowing in rhythm as their boat swiftly slicing through the water. The team is made up of locals and some expats, I observed.

Equipment: A dragonboat long enough to accomodate 24 rowers and a sturdy set of paddles and brawn power.

Address: White Beach, Boracay
Theme: Kayaking/Canoeing

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
