What Does The Tsugaru Channel Look Like?

Tsugaru Channel Masayuki Moriya of Ocean-navi photographed and filmed Triple Crowner Brad McVetta‘s valient 17 hour 13 minute attempt of a Tsugaru Channel crossing from numerous angles above, below and at the water’s surface.

The illustrative video created with a GoPro shown below gives a great idea of how the Tsugaru Channel looks on a calm day, but the story is always different under the surface of the clean, fast-moving, always temperature-variant water where the notorious Tsugaru Current and its resultant eddies can quickly and easily turn its back on channel swimmers.
