We can enthusiastically recommend using Whales Lanka as a company to organise a whale watching trip. We contacted the company from the UK and agreed arrangements over the internet with Mahesh. 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 that was no problem as Mahesh arranged afternoon pickup and transport the day before, overnight accommodation at his family’s Bayview hotel (pleasant enough) on the wonderful Weligama surf beach (stunning), breakfast and evening meals (good) , pickup and transport to the harbour, the trip and lunch, collection after the trip and transport back to our hotel with several impromptu sightseeing stops on the journey back including, stilt fishermen, a turtle sanctuary and a number of temples, etc. All of the above cost us less than 40,000 rupees or £200. We saw loads of whales, dolphins and flying fish. The whales were very helpful and provided a great deal of photo opportunities.
Thank you Mahesh and we have no hesitation in recommending your company.
John and Gillian
