Wat je gaat doen

Experience Okinawa from the ocean! You'll have the sun overhead, the wind on your back and sail over crystal clear waters of coral reef. If you're lucky, you might spot a sea turtle or even catch a fish on the lure we drag behind the canoe.

Morning or afternoon sailing times are available. The wind is often a little stronger in the afternoon, which can make for a more exciting sailing time.

Your sailing time can range from one hour to several hours, depending on how much you're enjoying yourself. The basic cost displayed here is for the initial 60 minute of sailing session. In one hour with a good wind, we may cover 10km (6.25 miles) or more in distance sailed. When available, additional time can be requested for an additional fee. Most guests enjoy extending the sailing time to take advantage of this serendipitous experience.

The canoe can accommodate up to 2 adults or 2 adults and a small child or 1 adult and 2 school age kids. The total weight of passengers must not exceed 170kg ( 375 lb).

Only bookings for 2 are accepted. Single travelers wishing to book must book for 2 guests.
Other things to note
If Tom determines sea conditions are not good, host may re-scheduled your booking or cancel without guest penalty.

Having lived in Japan, Hong Kong, California and Hawaii, I developed a real love for the ocean, sailing and water sports. After moving to Okinawa in 2010, my first project was to build a 21 foot all wooden Hawaiian style outrigger sailing canoe. I recently built a second sailing canoe, this time a 20' Marshall Island style canoe. Both builds took about 18 months to complete. Since completion, I've sailed thousands of kilometers and hours in waters around Okinawa. For lovers of the sea, the experience of sailing across the turquoise blue sea of Okinawa can't be matched by any other activity.

I booked with Tom as a surprise adventure for my husband and my 2.5 old daughter. Tom was actively tracking the weather and asked if we could arrive slightly earlier to ensure we had the best sailing experience. We all met at the designated location and took the short walk to the beach where the boat was located. Once set up, they were off! My daughter kept on calling it the Moana boat- it is beautiful and so unique! My daughter enjoys the water and goes out on our stand up paddle board regularly, she was fine with boarding the boat. She was very comfortable in her seat and enjoyed the entire trip. Be sure to cover up as much as possible from the sun, but my husband said the breeze from the ride kept them comfortable. My daughter wore a long sleeve swim suit, hat and sunglasses. We hope to plan another adventure with Tom soon!

Completely relaxing experience. Guests get to sit back and enjoy the stunning water. No paddling- Tom takes care of everything on the water, so great for young kids too.

My children and I had a fantastic sail with Tom on their last day on Oki for the summer. Tom kept us engaged with information about sailing in general, as well as specific details about the canoes he’s built. I was a bit nervous about possible motion/sea sickness, but everyone took a non-drowsy Dramamine that morning and no-one had any issues on the canoe. Have already booked another tour with my husband!!

Our sailing experience was perfect! We enjoyed getting the boat ready and sailing around Nagahama. The weather was beautiful and we got just enough wind to explore a bit. We got very lucky and spotted a huge ray and an adorable sea turtle. This was a magical experience for my daughter who loves Moana and was definitely living her Moana dreams. Tom, the host was very knowledgeable, kind and made the experience so much fun.
