Whale & Dolphin Watching in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is becoming a major spot for watching Whales and Dolphins as the island is situated within international whaling commission's protected zone in the Indian Ocean. The coastal areas of the West, South and the East of Sri Lanka are full of whales and dolphin watching sites. There is a high concentration of blue whales and sperm whales in the seas off Dondra Head along the deep southern coast of Sri Lanka during the months of January to April. If you’re interested in Dolphins, then the sea around Kalpitiya is the best especially during months of November to March. Whale and Dolphin watching is also possible during June to September off the eastern shores such as Trincomalee.

The sea around Sri Lanka is pleasantly warm, which the whales love, and during the winter in the northern hemisphere these whales travel through the cold currents to the warm currents close to Sri Lanka.  The Sea around Sri Lanka is also full of small and medium sized fish which the whales loves to feed upon.
Since the war in Sri Lanka finished, the Sri Lanka Navy’s passenger crafts are used for whale watching tours and are fully assisted by the Navy staff and crew for a memorable as well as a safe tour.
