Mirissa Whale and dolphin watching Mirissa

Mirissa Whale and dolphin watching are exciting and unique activities for Mirissa Water Sports and are the first and longest established whale watching operator on the south coast of Sri Lanka. MWS has had over 3 consecutive seasons of whale sightings all year round and most sightings occur 3 to 6 miles off Mirissa. The all year round sightings has put Sri Lanka, and the Mirrissa area, on the worlds 'Top Hot Spots' for Sperm and Blue Whale sightings. We are now cooperating with Sri Lanka's leading marine mammal expert Anouk Ilangakoon, who identifies the types of whales and their migrating habits. As part of their migration pattern, blue whales are seen frequently during the first quarter off the South and West Coast of Sri Lanka. Mirissa Water Sports keeps accurate logs of the sightings so that we can predict the arrival of the blue whales for future whale watching tours. January through April is peak season for dolphin watching.

Please notify a member of staff if you wish to go whale watching. Passports are needed and payment must be made in cash. The rates are 9140 rupees per person, children aged 10 – 16 are half price, and children under 10 are free of charge.
