Depart for Mirissa Harbour as dawn breaks across the Sri Lankan sky. Board a traditional fishing trawler restored for leisure cruising. Set sail for Weligama Bay, renowned as a play area of numerous whale species. The warm waters of the Indian Ocean provide ideal conditions for blue whales, fin whales, sperm whales and sometimes even killer whales.
Gaze across the horizon to view these endangered animals as they breach the water in a breath-taking display. Take a swim in the calm waters or try some snorkelling to admire other sea life in the area. Picnic in a coconut-fringed cove for a unique lunch before a spot of fishing.
Whale watching trips run between December and April, while the waters are calm and warm. Mirissa Harbour, where the tours depart from, is located 90 minutes from Anantara Peace Haven.
The trip lasts approximately 7 hours, including return transfers and lunch. Private tours are available for up to 20 people.
