Whale watching by private speedboat – Mirissa

Experience Overview

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Just off the coast of Sri Lanka, swims the majestic blue whale, the largest creature on earth. Nowhere in the world is it possible to see these ocean giants so close to shore than in Weligama. Borderlands Ocean Safaris presents the opportunity to see blue whales along with sperm whales, false orcas, playful spinner and bottlenose dolphins and turtles in their natural environment

EXPERIENCE DESCRIPTION: Borderlands Ocean Safaris offer exclusive private boats, giving you the opportunity to enjoy your trip in comfort and away from the hustle and bustle of the overcrowded public boats. The boats are fast and can take you to the shipping lanes (where the whales and dolphins are) in about half an hour. Along the way you’ll see other marine life; sea turtles, flying fish, pods of spinner dolphins and much more. In good weather, you may probably be the first boat at the whales and the first boat back at shore.

Includes: Boat ride, guide and drinking water.
Duration: Approx. 3 hours
Difficulty: Moderate. We categorize this as Moderate because of the heat.
Suitable for children: Yes, if they are not prone to sea sickness!
Times: To be discussed with your driver
What to wear or bring along: Cool, light clothing, a cap, sunscreen, your camera and your swimmers as there might be an opportunity to get into the water.
Important to know: Depending on the weather, the ride can be a little bumpy. If you are seasick, the crew has plastic bags to help and bottled drinking water. Take anti-sickness For safety reasons, you are compelled to wear the life jacket at all times. During the Peak season, especially around Christmas time the fishing lanes tend to get crowded with dozens of other boats out to see whales. Although sightings of blue whales are common, sightings are not guaranteed.
Private or not? This experience is private.
