The thing with nature is it isn't clockwork. Even if you come in the peek season and come when the tide is ideal there is no guarantee that you will see the whirlpools. That being said, the bridge itself is actually really cool on it's own and you can still enjoy a visit even if the whirlpools aren't spectacular.

I live in Naruto, so I know that sometimes these whirlpools are AMAZING. So hopefully you get lucky and get to see them. It's still worth a visit if you are in the area.

Be here during the autumn and you can clearly see the thunderous whirpools emerging from the sea. For a better view, you may take the path underneath the Onaruto bridge with a minimal fee.Overall a great experience. If you wish to go for further extreme adventure, take the boat that available for tour.A must see if you visit Tokushima.

If you go, do plan your visit beforehand.
Important starting point is to check the tide schedule. You can do this via their website (japanese only) or with the tourist information office.
We took the bus from Naruto JR Station. The buses to Naruto park don't go that frequent, so check this as well.
It is at the end station of the bus line, so you can't miss.
The observatory is a 500 meter walkway under a bridge (Naruto-ohashi) with good viewing points and perspex windows in the floor. The whirlpools are impressive.
