Sri Lanka is probably the best and cheapest plaves to see dolphins & whales in the world. The Sri Lanka navy has got a ssmall ship to take visitors safely out into sea to see these magnificent mamals. Booking are made via internet. Whale watching can be done year around at either Mirissa Galle or in Trincomalee.
