Naruto Whirlpools (Uzushio Boat Cruise)

It is the text from here.

O-Naruto Bridge, links Shikoku to Awaji Island in total length of 1,629m, and Uzushio, the world's largest whirlpools of 20m in diameter which keep changing shapes in a moment, are two highlights of Awaji Island. Especially in spring and autumn, you can see bigger whirlpools. There is a cruising ship which you can go close to wildly whirling Uzushio, and also sight-seeing ship called Kanrin-Maru, which you can tour around Uzushio for about an hour. Enjoy the dynamic view of immense whirlpools.
