42nd Annual Great Dock Canoe Race

Join us for the 42nd Annual Great Dock Canoe Race at The Dock at Crayton Cove on Saturday, May 12, 2018!

The Naples Junior Chamber "Jaycees" invite you to the event of the year! Founded in Spring 1977 as an end-of-season celebration of The Dock Restaurant’s first year, the Great Dock Canoe Race now draws thousands of spectators by land and bay to watch competitors. A parade of theme-decorated canoes and paddleboards is also a crowd favorite. Each year, the event theme serves as inspiration for the decorated canoes and paddleboards competing for the best-dressed prize. This year's theme is "Reel or FantaSea".

The Naples Jaycees will donate net event proceeds to local non-profit Charity for Change!

Races will be held in various categories, such as: Tippy Canoe VIP Sprint, Ambitious Amateurs, Truly Tenacious, Practically Professionals, Next Generation, and more. Compete for awards and bragging rights! There will also be a professional and amateur stand up paddleboard race!

Get up close and personal for Naples's most storied tradition, and enjoy live music, food trucks, and family-friendly activities throughout the day.
