Whether you like to swim, whether you like to snorkel or whether you like to float on the water… Papeete has an activity for you…. the “Va’a” as its known in Tahiti is a type of outrigger canoe that features one or more lateral support floats fastened to the hull of the canoe. These canoes are used for leisure, they are used for racing and of course general exercise…. as you make your way around the waters in and around Papeete you will see the Va’a everywhere… or if you would rather try something else… a paddleboard may be to your liking…. we opted for some snorkelling.
