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! ^^

The cruise is about going around the port. I like to see more on the nature. It is about 45 min ride. The ship can accommodate 791 passengers. But the seats are limited. Nothing to lose if I missed it.

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.

We went to the ticket office to pay 500 yen extra to upgrade our tickets, so we get to sit inside an air conditioned cabin to enjoy the ride.

Another touristy thing to do while in Osaka. Would be better if explanations were also done in English. Otherwise, only Japanese speakers know goes on here.
