Sri Lanka - Ecology Tours

Tour Itinerary
Southern Province of Sri Lanka is a world's top spot for seeing Blue and Sperm whales.

The sea off the south coast of Sri Lanka is probably the best place in the world for seeing Blue Whales - the largest creatures on our planet
The Deep South of Sri Lanka is becoming known as one of the world's best locations (amongst the top three possibly) for watching Blue Whales and Sperm Whales - two of the most sought after marine mammals. In fact for seeing both Sperm and Blue Whales together, it may even turn out to be the best location in the world.
It was only recently that the world became aware of the waters off the southern coast of this island nation off the south coast of India - the coastal strip between the ancient city of Galle and the new fishery harbour of Mirissa - as THE best place to watch Whales.
Sri Lankan waters are very rich in cetacean species with twenty seven species being recorded to date. One hundred and five river systems contribute a steady nutrient flow to the ocean. This together with upwelling at the edge of the continental shelf create ideal conditions to support a food chain all year round in the warm tropical waters. However, to see marine mammals, location and time is all important.
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 are good chances of spotting Spinner Dolphins also off Dondra. Ample of accommodation options are available as Dondra point can be reach easily from Hikkaduwa, Galle, Unawatuna, Weligama, Mirissa and Tangalle which are popular beach locations in Sri Lanka. Mirissa is the closest point to Dondra Point with good accommodation options.

We usually start at 6AM and the duration of sailing is 3 – 5 Hours at Sea. We provide Free Breakfast and Water, life Jackets and Life Guards are present in the Vessel as well. The boat has toilet facilities to cater to the long duration.

The cost is US$ 80 per person and children under 4 Years are free. Click here to book a Whale watching trip off Dondra Point/Mirissa.

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.
