Whale & Dolphin Watching

Take a boat trip in south Sri Lanka between September to April and you have a very good chance of hanging out with some of the largest known marine mammals. Cetacean watching is a fairly magical and awe inspiring experience. The International Whaling Commission established the Indian Ocean as Sanctuary in 1979 and has set guidelines for hanging out with these intelligent sea beings. Make sure your boat guide adheres to the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society code of conduct.  Expect to see blue whales, sperm whales and spinner dolphins. Mirissa or Dondra are popular launch sites.

Sail Boat Luxury Trip, Private Charter

Private Charter for groups of 4 to 30. There are a range of modern catamaran sailing boats that can be hired for sunset cruise, whale watching, serf break tours. Beds on board…longer tours and tours and overnight stays, make a refreshing alternative to hiring a villa.
