Dragon Boat Races on Flathead Lake

First Annual Dragon Boat Festival a Huge Success

On Saturday, September 8th., the first Dragon Boat Race event was held on Flathead Lake. It was estimated that over 3,000 spectators watched 56 teams compete on a beautiful Montana day.  The shore was standing room only, but the best view was from a boat on the lake.  Some people watched from kayaks while others dropped anchor from their motorboats and enjoyed a day at the races…Montana style. This video shows some of the highlights of the day’s racing events.

Dragon Boat Race Watching

This new event created still yet another way for us to serve Flathead Lake visitors. We were hired by a young man named Bobby and his beautiful girlfriend Dallas, to take them on a short Flathead Lake tour and head over to Bigfork to watch the Dragon Boat races.  Bobby is scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan with the Army next week so this outing was a great sendoff, and everyone had a marvelous time.  They enjoyed themselves so much they were willing to stand in front of a camera and tell the world about Captain Mike’s Fish~N~Fun boat charters.
