What To Expect

Witness the breathtaking beauty of Hokkaido's drift ice with this one hour sightseeing cruise from Monbetsu. Simply make your way to Monbetsu Garinko Icebreaker Station, located just a few minutes away from Monbetsu Airport, then present your Klook voucher to the staff. Hop aboard the Garinko-go II Icebreaker, then head off towards the Okhotsk Sea to observe the white drift ice chunks set against the tranquil deep blue waters. If you're lucky, you might even get to see seals and white-tailed eagles out and about, as well as the light blue chunks of ice when they flip over! Be sure to bring along an extra jacket so you can stay outside in the cold and get the best view of this snowy wonderland.

    Originally ordered at 9:00 am, but delayed until 10:30 without prior notice. You can get on board. There is no ice on the day. There is a real disappointment.
