We took an afternoon 40min cruise on the Santa Maria pirate ship around the Osaka bay area. Nice and slow cruise to explore the Osaka bay area. You could also take an evening cruise. This cruise was free using our Osaka amazing pass.

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
