Nature Activities

Whale & Dolphin Watching

Let’s go and view whales and dolphins in their natural sea habitat in an area called Ashizuri, close to the Black Stream! Come with us on the sea in search of whales. Experience the views of these magnificent creatures breaching the surface and swimming freely in the open sea.
Ashizuri is surrounded by the bountiful sea, including the ocean stream of Tosa Bay, nourished by the wood of Shimanto and the nearby Black Stream; home to whales year-round. Enjoy viewing Bryde’s whales, 10 meters long, plus numerous humpback whales and dolphins. We will depart from either Tosashimizu or Iburi port, depending on the wind direction.
