Outrigger canoeing became quite popular in Hawaii during the beginning of the 20th century. In Rio, the practice of this activity has been growing very fast within the last 5 years, and many competitions have also been taking place. The long and thin canoe can fit up to 10 passengers and can go really fast in the water. HAWAIIAN CANOEING IN RIO – PROGRAM Our Hawaiian Canoeing in Rio takes place in Vermelha beach, near sugar loaf mountain. Soon after the safety instructions are given, the group will head out to the water to start the activity. We first pass by the Forte da Laje (Laje Fortress), a stone construction right by the entrance of Guanabara Bay. The distance from Vermelha beach to the fortress is around 5 km. Besides seeing the fortress, travelers will enjoy the panoramic views of Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf Mountain, Botafogo and Flamengo beaches, Tijuca Forest and Niteroi – the city across the bay from Rio.
