Where you'll be

Meet at the Nakuragawa Bridge in the southwestern part of Ishigaki Island. About 15 minutes by car from the city.
The tour will take you to the depths of the Nakura River with a guide that knows countless tributaries. There is a spot surrounded by a tropical forest where you can never reach without a guide, where you can meditate and lie on the board. In addition to the mangrove growing everywhere, you can also see the red-bellied shrimp, the natural monument that is a mascot character of Ishigaki Island, the fish shadows, and the harsh bonbon, mangrove jack, and hermit crabs and crabs. And a wide variety of beautiful butterflies will fly right next to our SUP.
The route is about 1.5km from the estuary to the back of the mangrove, taking about an hour, sitting on the SUP board on the way and listening to the voice of the birds and the sound of the wind in nature, prepared jasmine tea and Take a short break with a snack.
I hope to be able to help customers who have participated with knowledge of creatures and plants with abundant guides convey memories that will last a lifetime and the appeal of the SUP board.

海でのサップを何度か経験していますがマングローブサップは初めてでした。娘と参加しましたが丁寧な説明があり自然の様子も勉強になりました。マングローブカフェは贅沢なひと時でした。また、家族やお友達と参加したいです。 帰宅してからも余韻に浸っています。

家族で初サップでした。親切に教えて頂きマングローブの森の中を散策したり石垣島の自然を満喫出来ました。是非夜のサップも(星を見に)行ってみたいところです^ ^

マングローブの奥の方まで連れて行っていただいて、静寂なマングローブの森の雰囲気を味わうことができました。普通のツアーではできない体験をありがとうございました!

A nice and relaxing way to experience part of the natural scenery in Ishigaki island. It was our first time using a paddle board like this, but it was really quick and easy to pick it up. We spoke in Japanese, but the host made sure to use Japanese that was easy for us to understand. After we finished the tour, the host was gracious enough to take us to an ice cream place afterwards, and give us recommendations for places to go in Ishigaki later that evening. I highly recommend this experience for anyone staying in Ishigaki.

SUPが初めてで普段あまりアクティブでない我々だったため、少し心配しておりましたが、周二郎さんの適切なガイドのおかげでまったく不安なく楽しむことができました。朝の爽やかな空気の中、マングローブの森をSUPで進むのは、最高に癒しのひとときでした。 石垣や自然についての豊富な知識、そして素晴らしいコミュニケーション力とサービス精神で、移動中やアクティビティ中の会話もとても楽しませていただきました。ツアー中の写真もたくさん撮って共有していただいたので、いい記念になりました。体験の内容や質を考えるととてもリーズナブルな価格だと思います。結果的に滞在中いちばん充実したアクティビティでした。また石垣を訪れることがあれば何度でも参加したいです!
