Speed challenge

Canoeing is one of the 12 games of Wii Sports Resort. It consists of the Speed Challenge and VS modes.


When you play the game, your Wii Remote transforms into a paddle. You have to hold the Wii Remote like how you would hold to do Canoeing. The Remote is being held vertically with the sensor facing upwards. In Air Sports, Mike is shown as The Extreme Canoeist who is trying to paddle all the way from Wuhu Island to Wedge Island.

Miyu and Stéphanie about to play VS.

The VS mode is where a 2-4 players challenge each other to break the bars as soon as possible.

First to 5 points wins.

There are three types of races with a certain amount of hazards (Excluding the first one). These races are organized by difficulty, just like the speed challenge. Here are the three of them:


  • No hazards at all


  • Lillypads
  • Grass


  • Logs
  • Gysers

Practice Mode

Practice Mode is a mode you can attempt in any skill level just press the (-) button when at the Starting screen for Canoeing. If you are a beginner you will have a tutorial in this mode. Your goal is help the Mother Duck find all 10 of her babies wandering all over the lake.

There is a certain glitch that some may experience where one of the ducks are in the dock of boat close to the Castle.
