Why not take a few hours out to enjoy an early morning adventure right here in the city of Tainan. Juggle the jumping fish and contemplate your carbon footprint, or just do that long needed upper-body workout in our city's mangrove wetlands.

Get picked up 5:00 a.m. (sharp) downtown Tainan and be paddling by 5:15! Watch the sun rise over the city while paddling to the famed "Dutch Bones" temple. The Sihcao mangrove wetlands are a remnant of what used to be a large inland sea that now comprises much of western Tainan city and county.

Enter the "Green tunnel" learning why some mangroves breathe upwards and some downwards. Absorb a bit of history from your cockpit. Learn why mud skippers skip, fiddler crabs fiddle, and have a peak into our municipal nature reserve (a surprisingly large and well-protected ecosystem) for plovers, herons and even a lost spoonbill or two. Examine your catch on the pirate ship. Meet some oyster farmers and hear how it's not such a fun job after all! And be back in the city for breakfast and a shower by 10:00.
