Sado trip! ① 75-minute cruise on a high-speed jetfoil “Sado Kisen” (Sado City, Niigata Prefecture)



Travel to Sado with “Sea Airplane” Jetfoil

To travel from the main island to Sado, take the Sado Kisen. There are two routes connecting Naoetsu Port and Ogi Port, and Niigata Port and Ryotsu Port. This trip was about 75 minutes from Naoetsu Port, and I took a jetfoil to Ogi Port.

Jetfoil is called a “sea plane” and uses hydrofoils to raise the hull to the surface of the sea. Even in rough waves of 3.5 meters, it can run at super high speeds of 80 km / h.

In the photo above, the hydrofoil is protruding in front of the ship.

It is in front of and behind the ship. It is under the ship (below the sea level) while sailing, and as the speed increases, the hull rises from the sea surface. Since the resistance of seawater is low and it is not easily affected by waves, ultra-high speed is possible. Moreover, it does not shake. I’m happy for those who are worried about seasickness. By the way, the Jetfoil is a ship developed by Boeing, which is known for manufacturing airplanes.

Introducing the inside of the ship.

The ship has two floors and has 250 seats on the first and second floors. Currently, it operates with about 80% and 200 seats to prevent new coronavirus infections.

Yoneyama seen at the time of departure

While sailing, I also want to pay attention to the scenery seen from the window of the ship. Land that gradually moves away at the time of departure. After a while, the ocean continues forever. Please enjoy the view unique to a cruise for a while.

Currently, Sado Kisen is selling a great-value plan “Sado 3-9 (Thank You) Stay Ticket”. If you stay in Sado Island for 3 nights 4 days or more and 9 nights 10 days or less, the round-trip jetfoil boarding fee will be reduced by about 4400 yen per adult, and you will also receive a coupon for 1000 yen that can be used in Sado City. Please enjoy a cruise to Sado on a Sado Kisen.

Sado has a low temperature in summer and a high temperature in winter compared to the mainland of Niigata, making it a comfortable climate. It is full of charm such as ingredients filled with the blessings of the island, historical heritage, and traditional culture. After arriving at Ogi Port, we will introduce you to the sightseeing spots around Ogi.
