Nature Cruises from Utoro
Lonely Planet review
A number of companies operate nature cruises along the northwestern side of the peninsula from Utoro. Cruises on offer range from 90-minute return trips as far as Kamuiwakka-no-taki (around ¥3000 per person) to 3½-hour trips all the way out to the cape and back (around ¥7000 per person).
Aurora Cruises , operating ice-breakers that do drift ice trips out of Abashiri in winter, offers both options.
Godzilla-Iwa Cruises does too, with smaller, faster and more flexible boats. They also run winter cruises from Utoro among the ice from January to April.
