Waka is the Māori word for canoe. Hundreds of years ago, New Zealand’s Māori arrived by waka from far off South Pacific islands. At that time they were among the world’s greatest canoe builders and navigators. Our wakas are inspired by small, unornamented wakas that are used for fishing and river travel (waka tīwai). These glass canoes are available in various beautiful colours.
