Whale Watching Tours

Whale Watching - November to April(High Season) and July- September(Law Season)

The whale watching season in Mirissa runs from November through to April and July to September, with the best chance of sightings from December to March because of sea is not rough. You will have a chance of spotting Blue Whales, Fin Whales and even Sperm whales in these waters along with a variety of dolphins.

Blue whales - the largest creatures on Earth - Humpback whales, Dolphins, Sperm whales, Orcas (killer whales), flying fish, can all seen a few miles off the South Coast of Sri Lanka.

The Whales and Dolphins come to this region to feed on the Small fish that comes to the Indean Ocean. There are three pods (families) of Whales that return to this area every year and they consist of approximately 40 - 60 whales. These Whales are matriarchal meaning that the eldest female leads the group.

"We had a great time on our trip, and I'd recommend Mirissa Whale Watch to any other groups, definitely." ~ Dave Woodfield (Aircraft Engineer in British Airways) from England
