Iruka (Dolphin) Marine World

(Source : )
Iruka Marine World offers dolphin watching to visitors. You can see about 200 wild dolphins at the encounter rate of 99% here. Minamihand-iruka (Indo-Pacific Bottlenose dolphins) inhabit off the Itsuwa Coast, Amakusa, an area blessed with beautiful nature and ocean. These dolphins are rather small and grow up to 2 to 3 meters long. They are friendly and full of curiosity, so they are not scared of humans and boats. Regardless of the weather, you can see dolphins swimming freely on the ocean all year round. This is a popular tourist spot with special offers depending on the season, including beverages, ice cream, and postcards.
