Head onto the Indian Ocean to watch for Sri Lanka’s whales on this private half-day whale spotting cruise from Mirissa. Settle aboard and sail to an area where whales are commonly seen. Then, look for tell-tale water spouts to spot species like blue, fin, orca, and sperm whales, as well as dolphins, all from a safe distance and with pointers from a naturalist guide. Beverages and coconut drinks available on board.
  • Private morning whale watching boat trip from Mirissa
  • Sail onto the Indian Ocean to look for whales
  • Watch for blue, fin, and sperm whales, plus orcas and dolphins
  • Learn about the species from a naturalist guide
  • Environmentally responsible trip with respectful whale watching
  • Tea, coffee, water, and coconut drinks available on board
Meet your personal guide at Mirissa harbor and board your whale watching boat. If you wish, bring a packed breakfast for your trip.

Admire Sri Lanka’s palm-fringed coastline as you sail onto the Indian Ocean, and relax and enjoy the views during the journey to where whales are commonly seen.

As you cruise, learn about Mirissa’s whales from the onboard naturalist guide. The local seas host species including blue whales, sperm whales, fin whales, and orcas, together with dolphins — all best seen between December and April when the seas are comparatively calmer.

During this time, perhaps eat your packed breakfast and enjoy the onboard tea, coffee, water, and coconut drinks. Your boat trip is designed for a responsible whale watching experience and to minimize environmental impact, so as you approach the whale grounds, your skipper will reduce engine noise and speed, and stop 300-100 feet (90-30 meters) from the site.

Look for spouts of air and water, and with luck, watch whales and dolphins enjoying their natural habitat, with the naturalist on hand to identify the species and explain their behavior.

After about an hour looking for or observing whales, return to Mirissa, where your experience concludes.
