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.

Whale and Dolping Watching by Best of Lanka

Whale and Dolphin watching is an easy sport that you can take up during the months of December to April. All you need to take is a boat, few kilometers from the shore, which we can help you arrange. Experienced local guides can show you a good time in watching whales and dolphins off the coast of Mirissa.

Pods of Dolphins can be seen accompanying boats frequently during the said months. Blue and Sperm Whales in large numbers frequent the coastline of Sri Lanka during this period and can be viewed near Mirissa beach, and just close proximity to the hotel.

Keep sun-lotion and a hat/cap and/or sunglasses in hand.

" If you're'll get to see the biggest 'mammal' on earth....I did...indescribable!!! I enjoyed a morning whale watching with this operator, and saw two blue whales, plus dolphins and turtles. Of course, all wildlife encounters involve a degree of luck. The operator was responsible and met with the codes of practice for whale watching e.g. not getting too close, not crowding the whales, not cutting in front of them. That is more than can be said for some of the other boats around. So I am glad I chose this company. The boat was in good condition and has two decks, a lower deck with seating, and a standing upper deck. Good views and visibility all round. Both decks have awnings providing shelter. The boat wasn't overfull and the crew were good at spotting whales, and clever at knowing where they'd resurface. They helped us by pointing out where the whales were, with crew on both decks to do this. We would definitely recommend this trip to those who like wildlife. You've got a good chance of seeing something, even if it's not a blue whale, if you go in season, and it's a reasonable company that provides a good experience. "
