Raja & the Whales Reviews
We went to watch the whales while Fanny was near the south of Sri Lanka so the sea wasn't at its best shape. Even though, we were able to see 6 whales and 2 dolphins pretty close from the boat. It was... more »
On a la une volonté de bien faire les choses, accueillis avec le sourire, beaucoup de bonne nourriture.

We were lucky enough to be alone with the whales, we feel that these people want to raise awareness of the animal cause and respect the whales. You learn a lot of things, you take a lot of it in the eye and all that in a reasonable number of people.
The crew was so knowledgeable! We stayed a respectful distance from all the wildlife we came across. The food was great, tea hot, and the whole process was very smooth. They even had a crew member on board with a giant telephoto who shared pictures with everyone at the end. I can't wait to go back and see the crew again!
This was an amazing experience, very very enjoyed. I would say this is by far the best whale watching in Merissa. We was the first boat to leave the harbour, the first to see the whales, which we had seen dive down and come back up about 3-4 time before any other boat had even found them, but the time the other boats came they was so many all trying to get a glimpse it was quite unreal watching them all racing about. Our crew was most respectful of the whales and didn't bother chasing them with all the other boats as the whales get scared. Also seen dolphin's and turtles, team where very knowledgeable and food was spot on. Worth it!!!
