Shared Whale Watching

From December to April each year, Sri Lanka’s south coast features calmer waters and we venture out to sea in search of marine biodiversity — especially Blue and Sperm Whales during their migration around the southern tip of the island.

The Sail Lanka Ocean Safari experience is guided by a naturalist who will provide informative commentary on the whales, their migration patterns and behaviour. There is also a possibility of seeing other marine wildlife such as dolphins, turtles, types of fish and birdlife during the excursion.

For this experience, Sail Lanka will use a yacht of a catamaran style with plenty of space to lounge and relax, and are equipped with a trained team. The catamaran includes numerous vantage points for everyone to take in a sighting clearly.
