Whale and dolphin watching – Kalpitiya

Back Back

Accompanied by an experienced naturalist you will not regret taking the thirty-minute boat ride out from Kalpitiya beach. Before long you will be surrounded by spinner dolphins, leaping and spiralling into the air. Sometimes up to 300 can be seen at one time. However, this is just an interlude, for between December and March, blue whales travel through these waters, and you have a very good chance of seeing them at incredibly close range.

Managing Expectations

It is important to remember that, whilst they are experts in their field, the people who run or host our experiences are not necessarily used to working in the tourism industry and may not offer the level of service you would find at a five-star hotel. For example, instead of a formal lecture, you may get a relaxed conversation where open discussion is encouraged. All of our hosts are, however, extremely engaging, knowledgeable and passionate about educating visitors about their chosen subject and we have worked with them to ensure that they deliver worthwhile, fulfilling experiences. We welcome feedback, so please let us know what you thought and if you think any improvements could be made to the experiences we offer.
