Jangsaengpo Whale Cultural District, located in Nam-gu, Ulsan, is famous for the whale-themed tour program featuring a whale watching cruise, a whale museum and the whale ecology familiarization tour. The whale watching cruise was upgraded in May 2013 to include watching for dolphins as well, therefore offering an even more enjoyable whale watching tour. At night, one can experience a glamorous night view of Ulsan Industrial Complex while enjoying diverse performances and buffet dining aboard the ship.
