Whale Watching in Mirissa

Highlights

  • 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

Description

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 in the world 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.
