Start your day in Ishigaki with a sunrise tour of the Miyara River mangroves! An expert guide will bring you to Ishigaki’s best sunrise spot, and take you out on the waters by canoe or SUP for an experience you’ll never forget.
This early-morning tour takes you to the mouth of the Miyara River, which is famous for the mangrove trees that are symbolic of Ishigaki Island. Here, you'll try stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) or canoeing, and watch the sun come up over the iconic forest. You’ll meet your guide before it gets light, who’ll take you to the mouth of the Miyara River in all its pre-dawn tranquility. Cruising the placid waters before sunrise is blissfully peaceful, but the real magic is when the sun rises above the forest and sparkles on the glittering waters all around you. This tour also includes a photography service — your guide will take photos with a waterproof camera. After the tour, you'll receive digital copies of the photos — memories of your Ishigaki adventure! This tour is beginner-friendly, so don't worry if you lack experience in any of the activities on the itinerary. Your guide will provide safety equipment and assist you throughout. And since the tour finishes between 07:15 and 08:30 depending on the season, it’s a perfect activity to squeeze in on the last day of your visit!
