Full description
Go off the beaten path during this guided kayaking and snorkeling tour of the UNESCO Heritage Site, Iriomote Island. Of the island, 90% is untouched by humans, making this an ideal opportunity to immerse yourself in nature. This tour will first take you to the mangrove jungle for kayaking at a mangrove river. See various forms of life, plants, and a waterfall in the end. There is also the option to switch out your kayak for a stand-up paddle. After, enjoy snorkeling in the beautiful ocean of Iriomote. Spot a variety of fish and keep an eye out for roaming sea turtles. See the coral-pebble island that’s called the miracle island since it shows up only when it is at low tide. After enjoying your fun in the water, get dropped off back at the starting point of the tour or back to your pickup location, if applicable.
