Walking on Drift Ice
This glass-bottom cruise around the Iwabe coast sets sail from the Iwabe fishing harbor located in Fukushima, Hokkaido, offering views of the sea below.
The Iwabe coastline and its large, irregularly shaped rocks stand at heights of 200 meters, spreading out across wondrous, stunningly picturesque views. The route includes the must-see blue cavern, a sight of majestic beauty.
If you're lucky, you might even catch glimpses of wildlife such as dolphins, bears and falcons.
What's more, as a special bonus exclusive to the Iwabe Cruise, our fully qualified and accredited staff will fly a drone from the boat and take commemorative photographs, capturing memories to last a lifetime.
