Santa Maria Cruise3.9
If you visit Osaka Aquarium (Kaiyukan) or Tempozan ferris wheel, you might want to consider this 45-min cruise to enjoy sights around Osaka Bay. The views of the structures, including a 1,000m-long red bridge that crosses over the bay, are impressive. The cruise ship is a double-sized replica of the Santa Maria that Columbus sailed to discover the New World. The room dedicated to the history of the original ship is also interesting.

Go for VIP ticket. You get boarding first and your waiting line is in the shade! Also you get one free drink from the menu; a beer or ice scream or Apple Juice or Tea! Best experience for one 500yen more per person with Osaka Amazing Pass! ^^

Stroller parking available on the ship.
If you like Bay, sea, port, so riding the cruise might be your choice. We use Osaka amazing pass, so we thing it's worth visiting. It's a good way to get to see what's around the port.
The ship will go slowly back and forth, not speedy, to let you enjoy withthe moment.

I didn't board the cruise myself due to lack of time, but the ship was big and people aboard seemed to be having lot of fun.

Oh my goodness. So boring. Osaka Port is a working industrial port, and as such, isn’t pretty. The boat is cool to look at, but I would recommend getting a photo as it arrives then saving yourself an hour of your life you’ll never get back. If you got the Osaka Amazing pass, I’m sure there are plenty of other better water/ cruise experiences.
