There are many interesting canoeing possibilities all over the island. The best time is usually in the morning when the wind is weak. The Northern bay has protected waters and stunning views. The Conceição lagoon is popular but be aware of fast boats and jets skis. Peri lagoon is located in a preservation area, where motor sports are prohibited so canoeing becomes a magic experience. It is quite easy to find canoes or kayaks to hire. Kanaloa operates Hawaian Canoeing in Conceição lagoon, an interesting option with up to 6 rowers.
Rafting is not possible in the island but there are some rapids in the continent hills at the Tabuleiro estate park.
