Very experiences Whale watchers in Mirissa, you hardly miss Whale if you go with them. They may take you next day if you missed the Whale. Not only Whale, Delphine can be watch with Geeth's team.

Spent a lovely few hours onboard Geeth's boat spotting blue whales-we found them after an hour or two of searching. Our boat was always in the perfect spot for viewing and the crew seemed to know exactly when the whales would be surfacing. The crew were friendly and helpful.

We had a really good time. I'm sure we wouldn't be so positive had we not seen any whales but we did see a large blue whale, dozens of dolphins, a couple turtles and a few flying fish. We were thrilled. It's true that the crew doesn't spend a lot of time talking about the whales but we were okay with this. They were happy to answer all of our questions. Be careful with the sea sickness. Several passengers were suffering. We took motion sickness tablets before the trip and were fine. Overall it was a once in a lifetime experience for us--in a positive way but I can see how people would be upset if they did the long boat trip without any whale sightings.

If you wanna do whale watching in Mirissa don't go with Geeth & his crew - they don't seem to know anything about whales and dolphins!
This trip was a complete waste of money and time, 5 hours out on the ocean without any crew member telling us anything about the whales & dolphins about Mirissa. When we saw some short-finned pilot whales they told us it was neither a whale nor a dolphin. Seems like they don't know that a dolphin is a whale and the pilot whale is actually some kind of dolphin. So the only piece of information we got from them was as wrong as it can get because it was both whale and dolphin.

I guess the fact that we didn't see any blue whales or other giant whales was unlucky, but on the way back the crew should have told us why we didn't find them or at least say something - they completely missed on either welcoming us on board or say good bye.

We were promised 7 hours out on the ocean unless we would be very lucky and see many whales already in the beginning - what we weren't. But anyway we went back after 5 hours - not really fair if you ask me!

The way they were driving the boat was horrible, it was impossible to stand up while the boat was moving, they were just chasing around. When I had to go to the toilet it was horrifying - there was nothing to hold on to in the little room and I almost fell many times!
