Discover the Indian Ocean Stars Package 1 – Short Term Package - 2 Days

Whales and Dolphin watching is the best sport in Sri Lanka.

Of the 80 cetacean species observed and identified in the world, 26 are found in the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal. Sri Lanka is located in this protected area by the International Whaling Commission.

Dondra Point and Mirissa

Many experts have found that the deep southern waters of Sri Lanka on the outskirts of Dondra Point are the best in the world to observe blue and sperm whales. The whale watching season is longer than anywhere else!
While we provide our clients with fascinating natural experiences, we work with a non-profit foundation in this area to create jobs for young people from tsunami-affected areas.
From December to April are the best months for watching whales and dolphin in Mirissa and you have the best opportunities to start your excursion early in the morning!

Kalpitiya

Compared to Dondra, whale watching in Kalpitiya is rare, but it is one of the best places to laugh and call dolphins. Rotary dolphins in Kalpitiya will offer hundreds or maybe even thousands of shows.
In this area, we work with the community to encourage them to provide much needed income from fishery income and to protect their species.
The best months for dolphins observed in Kalpitiya is from November to April and the morning is best time for watching whales and dolphins.

Best Practices

  • Bring plenty of sunscreen, a hat and your camera / binos.
  • Do not feed any wild animals. Coming near your boat doesn’t mean they want your food.
  • Do not compel your guide / boatman to take the boat too close to them.
  • Obey all safety rules given by the crew.

Day 1

• Warmly welcome.

• Transfer to Kalpitiya.

Located between the deep lagoon of Puttalam in the east and the majestic Indian Ocean in the west, the Kalpitiya Peninsula is an exquisite coastal area on the west coast belt north of Colombo. It is an unrivaled marine sanctuary with diverse habitats from barley, shallow coastal plains, salt mines, mangrove swamps, salt marshes and vast sandy beaches.

Despite the beauty of nature, Kalpitiya is not as prominent as sightseeing. From here visitors can gain real insight into the dense fishing community and enjoy the diverse activities of this district. Kalpitiya has the best kite surfing in South Asia with almost constant winds. Snorkel or dive in the largest coral reef in Sri Lanka and discover tropical fish, rat stingrays, reef sharks, and even turtles. Take a canoe in the lagoon or watch a group of dolphins spread out on the coastal waters. Or you can visit the Dutch fort and St. Peter’s Church to see the colonial past of Sri Lanka.

• Checking in to a hotel.

• Relaxing on the beach in the afternoon.

• Overnight stay at the hotel in Kalpitiya.

Day 2

• Morning breakfast at the hotel.

• Leaving from the hotel for Dolphin watching Excurtion

In Kalpitiya you don’t have to go far to the sea to see dolphins. The Continental Shelf runs close to the coast and provides a great opportunity to watch sea life just a short boat ride from the shore. From November to April you can see the waters of hundreds of dolphins in Kalpitiya waters, especially near the Bar Reef, which is an hour’s boat ride away. The most common are spinner dolphins, but also bottlenose, risso, indopacific and humpback dolphins are common.
