Plan description

Abashiri Drift Ice Sightseeing Icebreaker Aurora is looking closer to the "drift ice" that covers the Sea of Okhotsk in white. The vibration and sound of breaking the drift ice is powerful! You can move to various places on board during the flight. You can see the drift ice more closely on the side deck and rear deck on the 1st floor. On the 2nd floor side deck, rear deck, and observation deck, you can see the drift ice field covered in white with the Shiretoko mountain range in the background. In addition, there are chair seats on board, and there are shops and toilets that sell "Aurora goods" to remember your trip. [Clothing belongings] ・ Winter clothes ・ ・ ・ The inside of the ship is fully heated, but when you go out to the deck, it is very cold due to the sea breeze.・ Camera / Binoculars [Caution] * Drift ice is mobile, so it may move depending on the sea conditions. * We will operate to the drift ice zone offshore. * If there is no drift ice or if it is far offshore, it will be a marine excursion to Cape Notori. * If the number of participants is less than the number of participants, the service may be suspended.

You can see the drift ice from various angles.

While on board, you can move to various places such as the side deck / rear deck on the 1st floor and the side deck / rear deck / observation deck on the 2nd floor. The appearance of drift ice and scenery changes depending on the location, so please enjoy your own unique experience of drift ice.
