Drift Ice & Bird Watching

Winter

Drift Ice & Bird Watching

Late January to Mid-March

If you want to experience the harsh winter of Shiretoko and Rausu
Drift ice cruising.

Cruising while looking for animals and birds that have overwintered in Shiretoko while squeezing the drift ice with Evergreen. Approximately 700 white-tailed eagles and Steller's sea eagles that come during the drift ice season can be seen with high probability.
Whenever we discover animals, we will notify you with a microphone and a speaker on board, and the staff will carefully guide you about the ecology, characteristics, habits, etc. At the same time, you can get a closer look at the Alaska pollack fishing boats that start around January. Only Rausu can board a drift ice sightseeing boat on the Shiretoko Peninsula in winter.
