Explore the Miyara River's famous mangrove forests after dark on this guided SUP tour. With your guide, you'll see a different side to Okinawa's natural beauty — thick mangroves and river wildlife rather than open ocean. Away from the bright lights of mainland Japan, Ishigaki Island is also a perfect spot for stargazing! When the weather is clear, you can look forward to a sky filled with stars. During the tour, your guide will also handle photography, so there's no need to risk dropping your phone in sea water! Most participants on this tour have never tried SUP boarding before, so beginners can book with confidence! This tour includes pickup and drop-off at accommodation in southern Ishigaki Island.
