Underwater Observation Ship "Zeela"

Underwater Observation Ship "Zeela"

Underwater Observation Ship 'Zeela' Zeela is a submarine ship shaped like a whale which glides slowly around the sea of Yobuko. Passengers can take in the underwater scenery at their leisure from Zeela's windows, which are submersed to a depth of 1.2 meters below the sea surface. The sight of the fish as they swim naturally on the current is absolutely amazing. Passengers will enjoy gazing at the creatures of the sea so close it almost feels like you could take them up in your hands. There is a blue Zeela and a pink Zeela operated by a female captain, both of which are extremely popular with the children. Zeela departs from Marinepal. The Ikamaru boat which cruises around Nanatsugama Caves also departs from Marinepal.
