Amazing experience - great company
Jan 2020 • Friends
We went on a whale snorkelling tour with Mirissa diving center towards the end of January. It was absolutely incredible! We were lucky enough to see at least 4 blue whales and some smaller whales (I think fin whales?). The crew, Erranda and Lakamal were great in directing us when to jump in the water, had an obvious respect for the animals and clearly wanted us to have the best experience.

I ended up choosing ZRI Adventures/Marissa Diving Center because it was properly licensed, organised our permits and Zakib from ZRI was a pleasure to deal with over whatsaap. He assured me that if we did not see whales the first day, we could come again the next. On that note, the crew would ask us how we were feeling and whether we want to keep going - definitely make sure you make clear if want to keep going if you do!

All round would recommend this company and the experience itself!! Once in a lifetime!

My sister and I had been dreaming of what it would be like to swim with blue whales and this tour made that dream a reality!

After some research and various conversations with people we decided to go with ZRI Adventures, (despite it being more expensive than other tours offered on the beach) to ensure it was an ethical and legal practice.

We went out at around 10:30am (had planned to go earlier but windy conditions prevented us from doing so) with our two crewmen, Erranda and Lakmal, who shortly after going out to sea had spotted a whale. We were able to jump in the water five or six times at their instruction and get some great views of the whales. On our last jump we were able to swim alongside a massive blue whale for some time. We were only out at see for approximately 45minutes but that was all that we needed. This was a truly memorable experience. Both crewmen along with Zakib from ZRI Adventures were all very pleasant to deal with, so we would definitely recommend this tour.

5 Amazing days in Sri Lanaka
Nov 2019 • Family
Hello mates, I am ABDO from LIBYA, though many places I was interested to go and discover in Sri Lanka, but 5 amazing days were so short. I basically was going to visit some countries in Asia which were Malaysia, indonisia & Sri Lanka. I was initially so confused about the Visa arrangement, however ZRI Adventures helped me through the process, they had suggested me to a very amazing trip plan with a mix of various sight seeing tours and adventure across many beautiful cities in Sri Lanka.

Snorkeling with Whales was an unforgettable experience. We were scared and excited at the same time. The instructors were so helpful and guided us with the safety precautions. I will never forget this day!

ZRI Adventures made it easy for me to go and discover, they are so helpful, they have advised me with each and everything in my trip, starting with the money exchangers, transportation, and hotels, I was with my wife, sister & mom, they were so happy also, we stayed 3 days at Triple O Six Hotel, and we stayed the last night at Shangri-La Hotel, it was very nice and the best thing is despite the office we came through was very polite people, and also the hotel people are very helpful, they were advising us with the Halal food and everything.

Honestly Sri Lanka is number 1 among the countries I have visited this year.

Thank you ZRI Adventures for making this a memorable trip!
