Whale & Dolphin Watching

 Sri Lanka is fast becoming recognised as one of the finest places in the world to see the migration of the earth’s largest living creature the mighty Blue Whale and further out to sea the Sperm whale. The waters of Sri Lanka fall within the International Whaling committee’s protected zone and the surrounding waters of the Indian Ocean are home to 26 species of cetaceans.

Whale watching is a seasonal activity.  Tours leave from the West coast and South coast of Sri Lanka between November and March each year.

Footfalls would be happy to assist you in arranging a whale watching trip as part of your itinerary when in Sri Lanka.
