It was a great trip provided by Whales Lanka! Comfortable and clean boat. Enough space for all guests. Good service from crew. We saw 7 blue whales, more then 100 dolphins. On the way back we saw huge whale shark. Amazing morning! Definitely recommend for everybody!

If you are lucky you would spot a whale ( that is the bottom line ) there are a number of boats which start at about 6 AM from Myrissa harbour and they head to the open sea. It was quite a surprise that without much waiting there was a Whale and got a good view of it !!! About... More

A good trip on a modern purpose built boat. There was coffee and a bread roll with egg for breakfast, complimentary water. Naturally you go out to sea, to they also provided a sea sickness pill for those that wanted. There was no extra or hidden charges, with people free to view from both upper and lower decks. Everyone gets... More

We went whale watching in early May with Whales Lanka. It was poor weather, so we were only looking for whales for 1 hour - not the fault of the operators, but a poor return on the cost. When we were about to board the boat we were told of the "extra Rs 500" required for going on the upper... More

Mahesh was very helpful and provide all the information we need with prices for each component. We were staying over 2 hours away from the whale watching area but... More

We went to make an early morning (6am) whales watching out 10 miles from Mirissa harbour (southern province 40 km under Galle). We've used a local fisherman boat, not really speed and confortable but good enough to make us happy to watch at whales passing from southern Sri lankan beaches to migrate to souther Indian ocean toward Antartide pole. Nice... More
