This sightseeing boat departs from a fishing port near Kabushima and cruises around Hachinohe Bay for 40 minutes. A view of Kabushima from the sea and the landscape of the harbor facilities and industrial area provides an impressive spectacle. On clear days, you can see as far as the Hakkoda Mountains and Mount Iwaki.
You can also enjoy an up-close view of the region’s black-tailed gulls. The birds frolic around in flocks near the boat as it passes through the bay.
