Hawaiian canoe

The millenarian transport that became a fever in Salvador

The warm and calm waters of the bay are the perfect environment for sports.

The “Canoa Havaiana” or “Canoa Polinésia”, means of transportation that dates back approximately 10,000 years, became a sought sport in Salvador. Its peculiar shape, with a second hull to give it stability in the hectic seas of the Pacific islands, is now very popular in the city and you can choose some rowing schools to start in the sport or, if you already have experience, fall on the water and paddle!

Rowing and being in touch with the sea represents for many people joy, harmony, mental balance and a healthy life. Exercising the body through an outdoor sport and in contact with nature goes beyond body care- it is also a way to disconnect from the day-to-day race and reconnect with your own thoughts and feelings. The Bahia de Todos os Santos (Bay of All Saints) is the largest tropical bay in the world and the second in extension of both hemispheres, always with warm, shallow and calm waters.

A Hawaiian canoe holds up to 6 people, but also has models for 1, 2 and 4 paddlers. And, depending on the waves, they can even exceed the speed of 20 kilometers per hour. The canoe is very stable due to the float, which makes a beautiful and quiet stroll also for beginners.
