Sappa Boat Adventures

A great adventure on the sea in a fisherman's rock boat!

An exhilarating cruise on a "sappa boat" (a small rock boat) operated by local fishermen. You will feel the size of the ocean and be overwhelmed by the power of the 200-meter-high cliffs that you can look up at from directly below.

The boat takes you through narrow rocks that almost touch the rock surface, allowing you to get very close to the cliffs and strange and monstrous rocks, so you can fully enjoy the powerful and dynamic coastline of Tanohata. The rocking of the small boat and the tilting of the boat when changing course are the essence of adventure. There are no tricks, but the thrill you feel with your whole body is like a natural attraction at a theme park. It is a 60-minute tour in which you can also enjoy the interaction with the fishermen.

※For safety reasons, a person who understands Japanese must accompany each ship.
