Setouchi Cruising

〜So many ways to enjoy cruising the Seto Inland Sea!〜

Cruise between the islands dotted throughout the Seto Inland Sea as you enjoy the majesty of nature and breath-taking scenery. There are various packages to choose from.

◆Regular routes available with Nottoko Cruises

Nottoko Cruises operates five routes that depart from Mihara Port, Mihara City’s gateway to the sea. Trips last about 1 hour to 1 hour and 20 minutes, with slow and fast ferries used depending on the route. As passengers don’t disembark, but remain on board until the vessel returns, cruises are cheaper than standard return trips. Cruises operate on the regular routes used by locals, so they provide the opportunity immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the region while taking in views of the beautiful islands in the Seto Inland Sea.

◆Choose the package that appeals to you

There are also many unique packages to choose from. These include a night cruise plus accommodation on the island of Miyajima, allowing you to admire the spectacular sight of Itsukushima Shrine lit up at night, and a cruise that lets passengers view the warships at Kure Naval Base from the sea. What’s more, there are boat rental services and the Cruising Portal Site that recommends various sightseeing spots and routes.
