“Get here early!”
If you want to watch the tuna auction, you NEED to get here early.
The auctions start at 5am. You need to be here at around 2.30-3am. And I mean inside the waiting area, not "On the way".
This is one of the things everyone seems to want to do. They only accept the first 120 people to get there.
My group got there at 3.45am and they were full. But after a lot of convincing they let us in. Then you will sit in a small crowded room until 5am, no wifi, no nothing. Woo! Fun!
The auction itself is quite interesting. Though it will be cold. Bring something mildly warm.
All in all, I recommend. Its a good experience. 3.5 stars
