Island Adventure Sea Kayak Tour(Ise-Shima)

Come on an uninhabited island adventure by sea kayak!

Large birds soar the skies while finless porpoises swim the coastal waters. Beneath the waves, fish swim and sea grass sways with the current, as Ama forage the sea floor for shellfish.

On this tour, you will visit 3 small uninhabited islands in Ise-Shima National Park. Large wild birds, Black Kites, inhabit these islands. From February to June, you can spot small finless porpoises called “Sunameri”, diving in and out of the water. In the sea, discover the mysterious underwater seaweed forests swaying with the underwater currents. In these conditions, the traditional fishing methods of the free-diving fishing women : Ama-san, can be seen. The Ama’s fishing history dates back over 3000 years in the Toba-Shima area. If you are lucky, you can meet them in person. This tour will let you experience the close connection between nature and Japanese culture.
The departure point is very close to Toba station and easily accessible. Our guide will assist you while kayaking, so you can enjoy it even if its your first time! Please mention at reservation if you need to rental (free) clothes and marine shoes!
