Seek the calming rhythm of oars hitting the water as you propel yourself along one of Jacksonville’s many waterways.
Home to 22 miles of beaches, 40 miles of the Intracoastal Waterway, 50 public boat ramps, and the longest stretch of the St. Johns River in the state of Florida, Jacksonville is an ideal spot for avid rowers and rowing enthusiasts. With three rowing clubs to choose from all with premier programs, it makes it easy for those who are looking to host their next rowing event in Jacksonville or those looking to be a spectator at a rowing event.
A big rowing event in Jacksonville is the annual Jacksonville Dragon Boat Festival where you can travel more than two thousand years back in time to Hong Kong without ever leaving home by experiencing the festival at Metropolitan Park Marina.
