    Although it was raining on the day, fortunately it started smoothly and the sea was not so rough. I saw the sea whale and I was very happy.

    I think the ship was bigger and less unsteady. It was a comfortable and enjoyable tour. The crew are friendly and I've watched a lot of whales! We also sell syrups and raincoats, but the price is not cheap.

    Not long after departure, I saw the humpback whales and mothers and sons, the jets and the backs on the water, and the whale tails lifted out of the water. I was really touched when I saw them, and met five humpback whales in a short time. It was really too Fortunately.

    It was a rare experience to really see the whale jumping and jetting at a very close distance. Unfortunately, although there are Chinese language service personnel, explanations along the way are only made in Japanese and there is no simultaneous translation!
