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.

Better than the aqua line at Osaka castle. Much bigger ship, you can sit in the cosy cafe area or go outdoor at the deck to look at the view. The journey is about 45min. The Latte at the cafe is a 3 in 1 coffin mix and they sold it for 350yen.

Santa Maria cruise ship is on schedule. We boarded at 4 pm. The ship arrived at 3.45 pm. While waiting for the ship, you can walk around here, it is so refreshing! With OAP you just have to queue here, no need to exchange tickets or anything else. Not sure at what time does the ship starts cruising for the day, if I'm not mistaken around 10 /11 am. The schedule would be :11 am /12 pm /1pm.. And so on until 4 /5 pm depending on the season. So plan your trip wisely. You may go to Tempozan Ferris Wheel first. It is just walking distance from here.

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! ^^
