  • Departure in 10 minutes
    wild dolphins and
    98 % chance to meet!

    Tsuji Island in Amakusa Shimoshima, where wild bottlenose dolphins migrate in groups all year round. Itsuwa-cho, Amakusa City, Kumamoto Prefecture boasts a beautiful sea with outstanding transparency even in Kumamoto. Off the coast, next to the lighthouse on Tsuji Island, there is a place where wild dolphins have migrated since ancient times.

    In fact, if you ride a fishing boat for 10 minutes, you will come across three groups of about 300 bottlenose dolphins. They live mainly around Tsuji Island as "rooted dolphins," which are said to be rare around Japan. Dolphin watching with a veteran captain who knows the surrounding sea inside out has a 98% encounter rate with dolphins. The sound of the engines of fishing boats that have been fishing with dolphins since ancient times draws you in, and the dolphins come close to you.

  • You can hear the voice of dolphins in the water!
