Naruto Whirlpools, Shikoku

3.7
#9 of 141 in Nature in Shikoku
Observe the churning waters at Naruto Whirlpools, where the Pacific meets the Inland Sea with intense consequences. View things from above on the suspension bridge spanning the strait, or get a little closer with a boat ride. In the whirlpools here, waters travel at speeds peaking at 20 km/h (12 mph), creating vortices up to 20 m (66 ft) in diameter. Consider paying a little more on the boat for much better views of the action from the top deck.

  • It is a sightseeing in the no. It was good to be able to see the whirlpool tide directly under the Great Naruto Bridge up close. I think that the whirlpool tide of the great power can be experienced if timing is suitable because the power degree of the whirlpool tide is displayed in the HP of the viewing boat operator.

  • There are two best times to see the whirlpools, around 10.30am and about 4pm. We got there for the 10.30am cruise. Just a short 10 minute cruise to the whirlpools, they are very interesting they occur...  more »

  • Need to check for the tide timings for the best time to view the whirlpools. Also, the small boat is the best for experiencing the force of the whirlpools, and the spray from the sea. However, I think from the bridge, it’s a better view. It’s a good experience.
