Meet wild dolphins!

  • 11732views

Approximately 200 wild dolphins have settled in the Hayasaki Strait at the southern tip of the Shimabara Peninsula in Nagasaki Prefecture. They live here year-round, so you can enjoy dolphin watching from a boat throughout the year. On these exciting cruises you can feel the wild dolphins up close, and the site of them freely swimming through the sparkling blue seas will cheer you up and deeply move you.
*Reservations are required for the sightseeing cruise. (Departs when there are two or more adults)
*The dolphins are wild animals, so please do not feed them.
