Sri Lanka has received many accolades as a sought after destination to see whales and dolphins and an almost year round activity favoured by locals and foreigners alike. Whale watching has put little known villages like Mirissa in the spotlight and with good reason. Mirissa is not off the beaten track; just a few miles off Galle will get you to Mirssa and not outlandishly far off from Colombo. Whale watching expeditions in Sri Lanka will let you see blue whales, sperm whales and many spinner dolphins. However, the little known fact is that Sri Lanka is situated within the protected zone in the Indian ocean demarcated by the International Whaling Commission, which speaks volumes of the potential whale watching has in Sri Lanka.
Whale watching cruises on the Southern coast are now fully operational .For schedule Log on to http://whalewatching.navy.lk
