I would rate this trip as good compared with other operators in the area, but average compared with other trips I've been on. We were booked to do two morning whale watching trips as part of the “Big 5 in 7 Days” trip with Eco Team. The boat they use is in a much better condition than some operators we... More

I spent four wonderful days on this professionally crewed boat. We had fabulous sightings of spinner dolphins, blue whales and, on the last day, mating turtles. Spotting was excellent and the skipper kept a respectable distance from these amazing creatures whilst giving us an excellent viewing experience from the spacious foredeck. The crew also had an ability to find our... More

The boat was sturdy, well crewed and not crowded unlike some of the others. We had several sightings of blue whales and spinner dolphins and stood on the foredeck to watch these huge creatures. Crew were excellent at spotting and speeding us to the right place for close encounters. We went out four days running and it was brilliant each... More

Our group of 12 people shared the boat with maybe the same number again. It was not too crowded unlike some of the other boats out that day. Crew were friendly and helpful, and although keen for you to see the wildlife, were respectful of the dolphins and whales in not going too close with the boat. We enjoyed the... More

Had two days out whale watching with this company and had a wonderful experience. On the first day we had more than five sightings of blue whales. On the way out we came across a large green turtle floating on the surface. As we returned to port we came across a school of bottlenosed dolphins and then finally an adult... More

We really wanted to see blue whales while in sri lanka. Our agent found this company. We were impressed with their professionalism and respect for wildlife...not so evident among the other 14 vessels we saw on our safari out to the deep ocean trenches where the pygmy blue whales feed. Our spotters also found us a Bryede's whale on the... More

From complimentary pick up, uncrowded comfortable vessel to experienced and smiling guides/spotters Blue Water Cruise ticked all the boxes. They made sure we boarded safely and wore teh safety gear. What I particularly appreciated was that the guide made personalized attempts to make sure everyone saw everything. One of us was seriously seasick and the staff took really good care... More

Really nice people. We had a large boat between just 4 of us with 4 crew on lookout for whales and other sea creatures. Blue Water Cruise is an ethical operator and the large boat and few people meant that we were able to enjoy good views and take some great photos. Saw a blue whale and two whale sharks... More
