  • Assuming that whatever tour you choose to see the whales is organized the same way (so my review is not to anyone who conducted the tour-for other young and friendly guy-but to the type of excursion), I say that the 9,000 rupees paid per adult (€45 about) are Bad expense. With a big medium boat they take you on the high seas in an area where there are countless other boats of the same size, waiting for the whales to surface to breathe and then dive again into the abyss! You must have luck that the whale will bait in the vicinity of your boat otherwise you see only a puff in the distance! We're not here! The tour should be reorganized to number closed per day (very few boats) that stop silently waiting for the giant of the sea. Under these conditions even twice the price would be worth spending.

  • This is a money grab. The boat was way overpacked and uncomfortable. The crew members were polite and helpful when asked but no one told us anything about where we were going or what to expect. There was no interpretation or information about whales or the region. People were vomiting all over the place and it was very hot. We were out for seven hours total and saw only one orca whale for a few seconds. Even if we had been lucky enough to see more whales that day, I don't think it is worth the steep price tag and the discomfort. Our whole group wished we had stayed at the beach.
  • 7 whale siteings, dolphins fish turtles All having a good time south of Sri lanka
