Mirissa Fishing Harbor

The whale watching tour packages begin from the Mirissa fishing harbor at approximately 6.30a.m. Passengers are transferred onto sophisticated boats that are equipped with the necessary safety devices such as compass, GPS, nautical charts and UHF radio. These boats also have a small kitchen where fresh breakfast is prepared and served. Western toilets with shower facilities as well as plenty of comfortable seating areas are available for passengers. Life jackets available in a variety of sizes are handed over to passengers for their safety before the boat sets sail. Please note, the crew members on board are all officially qualified in life-saving, fire-fighting and first aid.

The entire whale watching experience takes about 4-5 hours on average, maybe longer if the whale sightings take a while. The probability of whale sightings is about 90-95% and we will give our best to make sure you see the whales.

Whale Watching and Galle Visit & Such a Great Day and Great Value!!

We had a fabulous trip yesterday with Tony Sri Lanka Tours. We were picked up at 5am from our hotel and driven to Mirissa. Tony reserved us seats right at the front, so we had the best views. We saw Blue Whales and Spinnaker Dolphins. The time went so quickly, It was great seeing the the Whales spout regularly and dolphins swimming by the side of the boat.

Tony asked if we want to see Galle and the Stick fishermen and the Good Karma Hospital house on our return back to the hotel. This was a great bonus as were able to see Galle and the Fort and many other sights on our return.

Such a Great Day and Great Value!!

Thank You Tony.
