Create an itinerary including Busena Marine Park
Explore what lies under the sea without ever getting wet at Busena Marine Park. To see the fruits of the marine park, visitors take a tour on a glass-bottomed boat, and head to the underwater observatory. Both experiences offer sights of a wealth of aquatic creatures, with the glass-bottomed boat primarily focusing on a coral reef and its colorful residents. The underwater observatory sits 170 m (558 ft) away from the coast, submerged at a depth of 5 m (16 ft), and offers sights of a sea grass habitat, populated by clownfish, damselfish, wrasse, and many more tropical and subtropical species.

  • Loved to see the fishes here. It was almost like an aquarium, but know that they are totally free and not locked in a bowl. They get super close, and the water is super clear you can see far away.
  • What a great place! The resort (The Terrace) is absolutely wonderful in every way and I couldn't be happier. Highly recommend the breakfast and dinner buffet. Also, definitely check out the underwater observatory.
  • Great views. The submerged fish viewing was cool, though the portholes were a little small and when we went (in winter) there was a little detritus in the water. Might be a clearer in summer
  • Love it!!! Glass bottom boat was great! We saw lots of fish out on the water and the underground observatory. You can also enjoy a bit of swimming on beautiful beach. Great views!
  • Went for a ride on the glass boat and while it was cool, the variety of fish were slim. Boat ride lasted 15 min-ish which was not worth the price of 1700 Yen thereabouts.
