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.

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.

Awesome ride! Cruising from the harbour of Osaka. Breathtaking views of the sunset if you are going for the twilight ride in the evening. The entrance fee can cost a bit. Would suggest u to get the amazing Osaka pass that will include the ride with any additional entrance fee. A 2 day pass would cost you 3300 yen which is very worth it. Highly recommended.

Nothing much interesting. They jut put you into the vessel and seal along the mount of the river. Get some fresh air and watch scenery without any explanation at all whether what are about along the way or any historical data of the places. It is free if you use osaka pass. Unless dont bother to buy the ticket.

A nice 45min boat trip experience. If you have brought 2 days Kansai pass, it will be a free ride.

Good short cruise and relaxing place to eat as well before heading to the aquarium.
