Your journey will start at Flamengo Park, where you will board an outrigger canoe (a Samoan style va’a) and paddle for 40 minutes around Sugar Loaf Mountain (or as close as possible according to sea/tide conditions). We will teach you basic paddling techniques, and provide all gear and safety equipment. While paddling, be prepared for some water adventures along with scenic views of the city. If you are lucky, fish, turtles, and graceful dolphins may join you. During the experience we will make some swim stops where you can take pictures and enjoy the views. Paddling is a silent contemplative activity, we want you to connect with the ocean vibe and fell the peace from it, hence we will not be talking or giving touristic information while paddling. *For groups of 5 or more people, please reach out for private days and times.
