Far East Hokkaido Scenic Byway Route 1

知床羅臼ネイチャーウォッチングクルーズ

 

世界遺産「知床」の東側、羅臼の海は水深が一気に1,000m以上になるため、流氷によってもたらされた豊かな栄養が植物プランクトンや動物プランクトンを発生させます。それらが魚を育み、シャチやクジラ、イルカたちが集まります。また、豊富な餌を求め、遥か赤道を越え南半球から渡ってくるハシボソミズナギドリが多い時には何万羽という群れになり、海を黒く染めることから圧巻の野生を感じることができます。


料金8,800円~  ⏱2時間30分 ☎0153-87-3330(知床羅臼町観光協会)

 

 

Shirekoto Rausu Nature Watching Cruise

The sea of Rausu on the east side of the World Heritage “Shiretoko” is over 1000meters deep at once and there are many nutritious planktons brought by drift ice. They raise fishes and gather whales, dolphins and killer whales. And short-tailed shearwater come to Rausu from southern hemisphere crossed the equator in search of food. When the flock of this bird is tens of thousands of birds, the surface of the sea of Rausu is dyed black and you can feel very impressive wild nature.
