As the drift ice flows into the Nemuro Strait from the Sea of Okhotsk, Steller’s sea eagles and white-tailed eagles fly in from above in search of food. Eagles make it through the winter by eating fish they pull out from drift ice openings. Rausu, a place where the landscape feature the gathering of large eagles, is a popular bird watching spot.
Riding a tourism cruise from Rausu Port means that you’ll be able to observe before your very own eyes, the Steller’s sea eagles and white-tailed eagles flying above the drift ice.
