Whale and Dolphin watching

Whale & Dolphin Watchin in Kalpitiya Sri Lanka

Kalpitiya: Is the best place to see Dolphins and during the season you can witness Dolphin pods up to 1000 to 1500 members at most given times. We can arrange accommodation in a basic holiday cottage or a nice beach villa in Kalpitiya area or get a boat ride organised from Negombo and proceed to Kalpitya by sea.

Boat trips to see Blue Whales from Mirissa during December to April. Whales go from Africa to Australia in the months of December to February and from March to April they do the return ward journey. Just in a 2 hours boat ride you can see them because the continental shelf is much closer when going from Mirissa.

Whale & Dolphin watchin in Mirissa Sri Lanka

One of the best places in the world to see one of the only recorded resident blue whale colonies in their natural habitat. Dolphins are regularly spotted on whale watching trips organized from Mirissa and Dondra head on the south coast. The BBC documentary titled “Ocean Giants” featuring the mesmeric world of Whales and Dolphins, and the scientist’s effort to shed light on their habits and why they grow so large were filmed around Sri Lanka and according to them 30 Blue Whales were sighted in a single day!

There is a 95% chance of spotting Sperm Whales (not sure of Sperm Whales, just do some readings on the web and see) and great chances of spotting Blue Whales as their migration path from Africa to Australia is just off Dondra Point. We are able to arrange Whale Watching Trips off Dondra Point in a fully insured trawler boat which will last for 3 hours. Also there is a good chance of spotting Spinner Dolphins off Dondra head.
