Due to the tides and undulations of the waters around Tsuji Island the area has become a haven for different types of fish which have become food for the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin. It is estimated that about 200 dolphins inhabit that area. This is something that is extremely rare! Dont miss the chance to see them with your own eyes.

※December - February only operates 11:30 and 14:30 departure.
