About
Kalpitiya is perfect for dolphin and whale watching, as you do not have to head out too deep into the Ocean: the continental shelf is much closer than reported in admiralty charts, so much so, the shelf actually runs near and alongside the shoreline. This translates into being able to see many species of marine life - in just a short boat ride away from the shore. You will be led by trained English-speaking guides, who will brief you on everything you wish to know about the dolphins/whales you encounter. Watching dolphins leap, swimming alongside you and under your boat - is truly an unforgettable experience. The sea will not be as rough during this period as it is during the monsoon season and it will be easier to spot dolphins given good visibility.

What to expect
  • We will meet at 7.30 a.m. at our centre and after a briefing on the tour and safety precautions, you will be ushered to the boat. Kalpitiya is a relatively new destination in Sri Lanka gaining prominence especially for its large pods of Spinner Dolphins off the coast. They were mainly seen in a belt that ran parallel to the Kalpitiya peninsula which was commonly known as the Dolphin Line. But while Dolphin Watching in Kalpitiya is now one of the main attractions in Sri Lanka, there are other water-based adventures, for those looking to do so much more during their stay here. If you are in Kalpitiya between November and March/April, the conditions are perfect to catch a glimpse of diverse sea mammals as the waters remain relatively calm and enhances visibility. Among some of the other commonly spotted dolphin species are: Bottlenose, Risso’s, Indo-Pacific and Humpback Dolphins.

Самый замечательный отдых, который можно только представить!

Хочу выразить огромную благодарность человеку, который показал Шри Ланку во всей красоте!! Васанта Сильва замечательный,добрый, порядочный и очень ответственный человек! Началось с того, что встретил нас в аэропорту и с той минуты наша компания ( 6 девушек в новой стране) были в полной безопасности. Это что касается безопасности.Помимо этого Васанте прекрасно знает свою страну и все ее укромные и самые -самые красивые уголки ( а там есть что посмотреть!!!) Был прекрасно составлен турист.маршрут, впечатления от увиденного еще долго будут греть мое сердце. Очень теплое общения, человечное и доброе! Показал нам много интересного (местные кафе,рестораны, деревни) не увидишь сам или живя в одном отеле. Внимательный и ответственный водитель, который всегда (даже выезжая в 5 утра) содержит себя и свой автомобиль в идеальной чистоте ( для ежедневных переездов это было важно). Советую всем посетить заповедник в Яле, отель в Синхарадже, чайные плантации, и ряд водопадов! И это только часть обязательной программы! Надеюсь вернусь сюда снова и снова, ведь Шри Ланка просто великолепна !!! Спасибо большое Васанта Сильва за прекрасный отдых , за то, мы полюбили Шри Ланку сначала твоими глазами, а потом и своим сердцем!!
