Blue Whale Watching in Mirissa, Sri Lanka
For blue whale watching, Sri Lanka is one of the best destinations in the world. This special tour lets you not only see migrating blue whales, but sperm whales & dolphins too!
Arrival in Sri Lanka and transfer to Villa Talangama, Colombo for one night.
After breakfast leave for Amaloh by Jetwing, Matara for five nights.
Day 3 & 4
Mornings, take the boat from the fishery harbour out to sea. Blue Whales in concentrations not seen elsewhere in the world would be the highlight. A concentration of blue whales of this nature is something which whale watchers can only dream about. During the migration, Blue whales are seen relatively close to shore as the continental shelf is narrow to the South of Dondra. After seeing the blue whales, your naturalist will take you further out to sea look for sperm whales. Even sperm whales sometimes come within a few kilometers of shore.
(The boat crew we use is experienced and makes it a point to keep a comfortable distance from the whales so that they are not stressed)
Another visit to the sea with focus on Dolphins. On a good day you will have the treat of observing more than five hundred dolphins. The long-snouted spinners are a treat to watch in action. See the image gallery.
Depending on your wish, you may either spend another day in the sea taking the last round of best pictures of the largest animal to have ever lived on the planet or you can opt to spend the day bird watching with your naturalist at a nearby forest reserve.
After breakfast transfer to Tamarind Tree, Katunayake for one night.
Transfer to International Airport for departure.
