You’ll see outrigger canoes by the score late in the afternoon, skimming across the waters of the lagoon or heading out through the passes to challenge the ocean’s waves. It’s part of everyday life for all Polynesians, whether they’re from Bora Bora, Papeete in Tahiti, The Tuamotu Islands or any of the other archipelagos. An outrigger canoe is not just for sport, it’s a means of transport and it’s also a fishing boat. But above all else, it’s fun! Va’a is the number one sport in The Islands of Tahiti, so while you’re here, give it a go!
