Nice place to take a boat ride under the bridge to look for whirlpools. Keep your expectations low and you won't be disappointed. Even though we went out at the optimum time to view whirlpools we still had to look pretty hard and don't expect...More

Thank you very much for your boarding. The winter's tide is cold and painful, but the tidal wave in the morning is very exciting and powerful. It is worth shipboard. Let's go to the forefront!

Thank you very much for your visit. Whirlpools change the time of rolling everyday. Please take a tide based on the tide table and the excitement and weather forecast. I will wait for good weather and wait.Have a nice trip.
