Santa Maria, a sea-faring sight-seeing ship cruising the Osaka Bay, the Water Capital. The ship is a motif, built two times larger than and modeled after the ship on which Columbus journeyed to the American Continent. Enjoy the voyage to the fullest measure while viewing magnificent scenic spots of Osaka Bay.

Costs 1600 yen ( about £12)pp. With Amazing Osaka pass it’s free. We got the last tour at 1600 hrs, not very packed thus not a long queue. Had a pleasant ride under the main bridges of Osaka . Overall a good way to relax.

With our busy schedule it was nice to sit back & relax for once. We were very lucky that the Santa Maria was docked when we arrived so we walked straight on. Osaka amazing pass once again

We enjoyed it well. It was free under Osaka Amazing Pass. Better go in the evening to avoid sun. Nice view of Osaka.

Stay away, Unless you are weirdly interested in containers and harbors. They have beer though. So if you just wanna sit on a boat an do nothing i guess its ok

The cruise is not excited, it's relaxing and very stable cruise. No worries about sea sickness. The La Santa Maria is a good place for a 45 minutes break at Tempozan Harbor Village area. Complimentary admission with the Osaka Amazing Pass and no need to...More

Some decent sights but the city is the main attraction. Stick to a boat trip on the river in the city
