Aqua Eddy underwater sightseeing boat

Pleasure Boat / Water Cruise
The Aqua Eddy is a small, fast boat equipped with an underwater observation room. Passengers can get a close underwater view of the spectacular Naruto Strait whirlpools through the glass bottom of the boat, which extends one meter under the water. Being able to enjoy the different views of the whirlpools from on deck and from down below really enhances the viewing experience. As the Aqua Eddy has a limited capacity of 46 passengers, advance booking is required. The journey time is 25 minutes; there are 15 scheduled trips per day. The Uzusio Whirlpool Sightseeing Boat dock, from which the trips depart, is located approximately 15 minutes by car by Naruto Station and around 75 minutes’ drive from Kobe-Sannomiya Station.
