Experience - Sri Lanka

Whale Watching in Mirissa


  • Cruise into Weligama Bay on a converted fishing boat and spot blue whales and other marine life

  • Includes round trip transportation to your booked hotel in Mirissa

  • Cooperation with a certified and responsible partner


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.
