The most biggest mangrove in main island Okinawa is Kokuba river in Southern area. But, the kayak tour is not being held there. So, Gesashi river  is the most biggest mangrove river people can kayak in main island Okinawa. Gesashi mangrove  area of approximately is ten hectare and all natural forest. There are no trees planted. If you enjoy natural mangrove forest grow thickly in main island Okinawa, we recommend Gesashi mangrove river.

 

Mangrove kayak tour is the activity adult and children both enjoy! And, it’s safety for beginner in kayak.

First, tour  guide show the guests how to control the kayak. During the tour, guide lead the way or side by side you. And, mangrove area is very calm river. Trees block wind and strong sunlight in Okinawa. So, it’s safety for family with small children and beginner in kayak. We use two-seater kayak. A small child and an adult  can try kayak together.

 

In the  narrow branch river, You can feel like that going adventure!

There are a wide river area and a narrow branch river area in Gesashi mangrove river. In a narrow branch river,  the width is just one kayak can go trough only. And the length is about 400m.

When guests go in the entrance of the narrow branch river, they say “Wow!! We have wanted to see the landscape like that!!”

If you feel like that going adventure, Let’ choose Gesashi mangrove river!!  

When you make a resarvation the tour, you need to know the important point. That is quantity of the river water change so much in mangrove area by tide. So, the kayak can go trough all narrow branch river on the day or time there are enough quantity of river water. When it’s the day there are not enough,  The narrow branch distance kayak can go through is be shorter than all.  When you want to know that how far kayak go through the narrow branch on the day you will make resavation, please feel free to ask us.
