Whale Watching Day Tour

See the Magnificent Creatures

Sri Lanka is an excellent location for whale watching in Asia, with regular sightings of Sperm Whales and Blue Whales off the southern coast, specifically near Dondra Point close to Mirissa town. The Blue Whale, a magnificent creature swimming elegantly in the ocean, exudes an air of mystery and beauty that demands respect. Imagine just a single moment of eye contact with this majestic being, which leaves one in awe, adding to the precious moments of life. Equally captivating and astounding are the Sperm Whales, another fascinating ocean animal.

IS THIS DAY TOUR FOR ME?

Anyone seeking a thrilled adventure deep into the ocean is allowed to go on this tour. The boats that take you out to sea are suitable for wheelchairs and baby strollers as well so no restrictions there.

WHEN TO GO

Apart from the months of May and June (when the monsoon is at its worst), any time of the year is safe for whale watching in Mirissa, Sri Lanka. From July – October, trips are confirmed depending on weather conditions on the scheduled days. November to April is when you are most likely to not expect any cancellations on your whale watching tour. If departing from Colombo, expect an early morning departure – no later than 4.00 a.m. This is because whale watching tours from Mirissa begin at sunrise so you need to get to the Mirissa fisheries harbor by then – which is about 150kms away from Colombo. However, if you are based in Galle or anywhere on the southern coast, you can depart from hotel at about 5.30-6.00 a.m.

CAN IT BE TAILOR-MADE?
