Whale Watching Tour in Mirissa

Spend an incredible morning admiring magnificent Blue Whales rising from the depths of the aquamarine seas, dramatically diving back into the tranquil waters, and frolicking with their calves blowing enormous balloon bubbles. Mirissa is a small fishing port on Sri Lanka’s south coast, popular for surfing and today famous for whale watching. The waters around Mirissa are particularly rich in plankton, a group of micro-organisms that whales feed on. One of the world’s top locations for watching the extraordinary Blue Whales, sightings occur on most mornings during the season which spans from mid-November through to early April.
