  • Whales & Dolphin Watching

Discover the Stars of the Indian Ocean
Sri Lanka’s best spots for whale and dolphin watching in Sri Lanka

Of the 80 species of cetaceans observed and identified worldwide, 26 are found in the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal. Sri Lanka is situated within this zone, protected by the International Whale Watching Commission.

Dondra Point and Mirissa

Many experts have confirmed that  the deep southern waters of Sri Lanka, beyond Dondra Point, are the best in the world for seeing blue and sperm whales. Here, the whale watching season is longer than anywhere else!

While providing our clients with fascinating wildlife experiences, we work in collaboration with a charitable trust set up in this area to generate employment opportunities for youth from tsunami affected areas.

The best months are from December to April, and you’ll have the highest chances if you start your excursion early in the morning!  

Kalpitiya

Compared to Dondra, whale sightings are not that frequent in Kalpitiya, but it’s one of the best places to see the ever smiling and singing chirpy dolphins. If you are at the right place at the right time - which you can entrust to us - the spinner dolphins in Kalpitiya will give a show in their hundreds, perhaps even in their thousands.

In this area, we work with the local community, providing a much-needed addition to fishermen’s income and encouraging them to conserve these species.

For dolphin watching in Kalpitiya, the months from November to April are the best, and during the morning hours are the highest !

Best practices

  • Bring plenty of sunscreen, a hat and your camera / binos.

  • Do not feed any wild animals (yes, they are wild animals!). Coming near your boat doesn’t mean they want your food… !

  • Do not compel your guide / boatman to take the boat too close to them.

  • Obey all safety rules given by the crew.
