Whale and Dolphin Watching Trincomalee

Whale and Dolphin Watching Trincomalee

Go in search of whales and dolphins off the coast of Trincomalee with a 3-hour Shared boat excursion. Boat out in a Shared tour or in a small group of just six people and look for blue whales, sperm whales, and spinner dolphins There is a high chance to see whales or dolphins during our tours the whole season round (probably 50 % 50% of Whales, 100 % of Dolphins) and we will give our best to find them for you on every single day. However, on some days, even with our best efforts, it is impossible for us to show you dolphins or whales. Most sightings occur between March/April and August/September, as whales continue their migrations around the island from the south coast (where they mainly congregate from December to April) – this means that Sri Lanka offers around ten months of continuous whale & dolphin watching annually at different points around the coast. *Read before The Indian Ocean is not a calm ocean. There is always at least a light swell. If you tend to get sea sick or if it the first time for you on a boat in the Indian Ocean, we advise you to take seasick pills in the morning of the trip (about 1 – 2 hours BEFORE you enter the boat). You can find them in every pharmacy in Sri Lanka. We recommend the brand “Avomine” or “Celenid”. Please consult your doctor or pharmacist in advance before using these drugs.

Sri Lanka Sightseeing Tour by Car with Driver.

Sri Lanka Sightseeing Tour by Car with Driver.

Highly recommend car and driver service for our valued clients to make your traveling experience in Sri Lanka a memorable one. When you do self-driving in another country it is very important to be aware of their road rules, regulations, and the conditions of the roads. Nevertheless, when driving in Sri Lanka you must have local driving experience since Sri Lankan road culture is shocking for an amateur driver – cyclists swaying across rush-hour traffic, tuk-tuk weaving between lanes, pedestrians, dogs & cows ruminating in the middle of the main road. Our car with driver service will allow you to enjoy your holiday in full spirit without any hustle & bustle. The drivers are well-experienced, knowledgeable, friendly & familiar, and are capable of maintaining a better client-driver relationship while ensuring safe driving. We are committed to providing you with outstanding service to assist you in making your car and driver tour a memorable one.
