While you can find cheaper whale trips in Mirissa, from what we could see Raja is a cut above the rest and worth paying a premium for. Free hotel pickup, large boat (solid, clean and stable - for sea sickness sufferers) and food and water on board. The staff are very knowledgable about the whales and care about making sure your trip doesn't disturb them. While we didn't get quite as close (as other, smaller boats chase and harass the whales), we stayed out for longer and as a result had a great experience. On our trip we saw three Bryde's whales (no Blue unfortunately) and had a really nice dolphin encounter.
