Our boat is the fastest, safest boat in Mirissa.

Our crew is helpful, providing full support along the 2-4 hours journey to the watching spot.

Our team is well connected with Sri Lanka's Navy, and they provide us with security support and usually after 20-30 minutes we receive a "whale call", so we know exactly where to look. We take nature very seriously, keeping our distance from the whales, and then they emerge close to the boat without fearing us. Life-jackets, seasickness pills, food, hot and cold drinks are provided during the journey. Also we provide transportation around Mirissa, accommodation is also available.

  • Wimal picks you up from your hotel, provides you with water and breakfast and takes care of the formalities (new Sri Lankan government wildlife protection tax). The price is comparable compared to excursions on larger boats (sometimes very polluting, clouds of black smoke), but what makes Wimal strong is its small and fast boat, which allows to be much faster close to the whales. So we see much more than the people massed on the big boats. Wimal is infectiously jovial!

  • A must for the unique experience to be so close! We were all in all ' but ' 2.5 hours away. It took a while before we saw some, that is part of Safari. But luckily we finally saw 4 whales well, of which 3 within 10 meters that is really special!!! He approached as close as possible without using full engine. He then put it completely silent and we could watch it quietly until the whale again underwent. It seems to me that such a large boat cannot approach that experience. We were a part of the time really alone at sea. Other part between (remotely) the other large boats. We got almost whole pineapple and watermelon as breakfast and filled with pancake biscuit and cake. And water. Excellent so his assistant was quiet and friendly, together they searched the waves for us. He wanted to get us and bring it from T hotel with Zn Tuk Tuk (we didn't need it) if I had wanted I could swim in the sea. His English is limited, thereby he could not inform us the waiter the whales. This is only a disadvantage for us. And the boat is heaving, sometimes even thumping. I would inform you in the case of non-calm seas. But big boats I have also seen a lot of slants, I do not know if you can avoid some discomfort on the high seas We have not become sick. All in all an absolutely unique experience for less money than a few of those big boats!! And this man is his profession, the best awarded for him and beautiful experience for you
