Super fun adventure

Reviewed by: Jas, 2019/07/19

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.

Great Trip!

Reviewed by: Jake, 2018/05/29

This was a great trip for our family and a few extra kids for our son's birthday. The trip began into the Mangrove trees where we got to see some of the wildlife up close. Our guide, Yumi, was very knowledgeable of the ecosystem, and provided great information. She spoke English very well. We moved out of the Mangroves and into the bay, where we were able to jump off the kayaks and swim for a bit. We finished with a little more discussion about the open ocean, and headed back to the starting point.

The facility has small lockers, which is fine if you leave your items in your vehicle. They do have showers and changing rooms available. This is a long trip, so make sure you wear sunscreen and are able to cover up. Also, depending on the weather, this could be a somewhat difficult trip for done people. My family and I all had a great time, and would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
