About
You can board a newly remodeled and comfortable ship for watching. Cruising while watching the beautiful scenery around Zamami Island until the point arrives! You can deepen your knowledge about whales! You can also relax in preparation for watching! When you arrive at the point, a thrilling time will begin where you do not know where it will appear 360 degrees. First, let's discover the blow (water vapor that appears on the water)! After that, the whale will show you various actions! You can pass under the ship or appear right next to it and get splashed! You can have a moving experience that you can't get anywhere else. You can optionally set it with a kayak or snorkel tour, so you can play all day on Zamami Island. * Minimum number of participants is 2. Please contact us if you are attending alone.

Lots of Whales
Feb 2021
The staff was very nice. Plenty of room on the boat. We saw a mother and calf swimming together. There were also 5 other whales swimming together. They got very close to the boat at one point. It was very exciting!

スタッフはとても親切でした。 ボートには十分なスペースがあります。 母と子牛が一緒に泳いでいるのを見ました。 他に5頭のクジラが一緒に泳いでいました。 彼らはある時点でボートに非常に近づきました。 それは非常にエキサイティングでした!
