The sea where you can swim with wild white-sided dolphins!
Off the coast of Jogasaki, Higashiizu, which is famous as a tourist spot
There was an astonishing unexperienced zone!


Cruising the open sea from Higashiizu/Futo Port

It is a dolphin swim & nature tour of about 3 to 4 hours in the open sea


Departing from Higashi Izu Futo Port and cruising the vast sea area offshore.

This is the path of migratory wild dolphins and whales.

Above all, it is a precious sea where you can meet white-sided dolphins that appear only in winter!

There are few oceans in the world where you can swim with wild white-sided dolphins, and fewer people than astronauts have ever swum. In addition to white-sided dolphins, there is also the possibility of encountering various cetaceans such as Risso's dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, spotted dolphins, sperm whales, and humpback whales.

Since they are migratory dolphins, the encounter rate is not high at around 30%, but when you do meet them, you will be shocked!

Please be one of the few people in the world to experience it!

* Dolphin swim is limited to experienced people who are accustomed to snorkeling and skin diving.
Please be sure to check the participation conditions.
