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!
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.
