Cruisin’

Printer-friendly version

The weather is definitely heating up in Busan, and Ric and I have spent the past couple weekends outdoors as much as possible.  A few weeks ago, we took a boat cruise around Busan’s coastline.

The Oryukdo Islets

With tickets at about $20 each, this made for an awesome cheap afternoon date.  The cruise we chose left from the Mipo Terminal at the end of Haeundae Beach and traveled down the coastline, past Gwangali Beach and out to the Oryukdo Islets.  The total trip took about an hour.

Though there wasn’t a lot of English spoken at the ferry terminal, you can buy your tickets there relatively easily.  (We recommend going in about an hour before your preferred departure time.)  The tour has prerecorded narration.  Parts of it were definitely in English, but the waves and wind made it difficult to hear.  You may want to do a little reading up on your cruise beforehand so you’ll know exactly what you’re looking at.

Sunny Busan

Even though the weather was a little choppy (there were a couple of seriously seasick Koreans on our trip), the views were awesome, and we took some really cool photos, some of which are included in this post.

The water was full of sailboats that sailed alongside our boat.

Getting There:  Go to Haeundae Beach.  Walk away from the Chosun Westin and the aquarium.  Mipo Terminal is at the end of the sidewalk on your right.
