Whale watching in Mirissa
Mirissa is the gateway to Dondra Point. This is one of the best spots to witness the whale migrations in Sri Lanka from the Bay of Bengal - Sri Lanka’s southern sea is calm offering up the perfect conditions.
The best way to enjoy these magnificent creatures, along with the resident spinner dolphins, is by boat. During the season, which runs between December and April, sightings of the blue and sperm whales are very likely.
It is very magical to watch these gentle giants in their natural habitat as they travel through the oceans. Plus, keep an eye out for other things as you are likely to also see turtles and flying fishes too. Blue whales are the largest animal on earth, and also one of the most endangered, so this is an incredible opportunity to see them close by.
