Super fun adventure

My friend and I took part in the mangrove and sea kayak combo tour and they were both awesome! You can totally feel the difference while paddling through the river and the sea. Unlike our experience kayaking in other countries where you're basically thrown into the water, our guide taught us how to steer, lead the way, took pictures and kept an eye on us the entire time so it felt extremely safe.

Even if you don't understand Japanese, it's definitely worth a try! With the mangroves disappearing on various parts on earth, I felt this was a very important and valuable experience.

Despite a steady rain, we enjoyed our tour. However, there was no English-speaking tour guide, and the rest of the staff only spoke a small amount of English, so we did not have the advertised experience. We speak enough Japanese to get around, but are not conversationally fluent. Also, we booked the tour a day ahead of time, so it is possible that the English speaking guide was not available on short notice, though that was never explained to us.

I would recommend this activity to anyone visiting Okinawa. The only downside was that the GPS led us to route 331, which was probably the faster way to Higashi-son. However when route 331 met up with the east cost, the road was closed due to an avalanche by the hills. So we had to go west again and take route 14 through the mountains. Perhaps Yambaru Club could post a sign by the route 58 - 14 junction so everybody can take the correct route. Other than that, everything was fine. It was nice to get the pictures from the trip through a CD made right away afterwards. Thank you again for the precious experience during our trip to Okinawa.
