Did you know that the heart of a blue whale can grow as big as a car, and its blowhole can shoot water up to ten meters? On our whale-watching excursion in Mirissa, you will have the opportunity to observe the largest and perhaps most fascinating animals up close.
Board a traditional fishing boat at dawn, converted especially for recreational tours, and slowly sail towards Weligama Bay. The warm waters in this region are a famous stomping ground for blue, fin, sperm, and occasionally even killer whales.
Look out toward the horizon and let these mighty creatures enchant you from under and above the water.
The best chances to watch whales in Mirissa are from November to April. A tour is not possible from May to July due to weather conditions.
