The experience was so so, the company organizing the trip is very nice and welcoming. However you barely see the whales, only from far far away.

Response from whalewatching c, Owner at Whale Watching in Mirissa- Exclusively Private Tour
Responded 1 week ago
Dear sir kindly note. our enjoyment should not harass the in any way they are also living creatures just like us. we should not harass neither should we disturb or scares the at their home. we do our whale watching with minimal. impact on them. Ho to get so close to them Once we get in 75 meter zone we will be more cautious and we slowly align the boat parallel to the animal. this where everything happens. we never chase. however , the chances are there for close ups. it is wonderful , amazing experience Please never expect of us unethical irresponsible whale watching. We are certified by the WORLD CETACEAN ALLIANCE for protecting the rights of the whales
