Just off the southern coast of Sri Lanka near Weligama lives the majestic blue whale, the biggest creature on earth. Take a boat out to the middle of the Indian Ocean for the opportunity of a lifetime: to witness blue whales at play. See if you can also spot the sperm whales, orcas, playful spinner and bottlenose dolphins, curious turtles and whale sharks!
After months of lockdown in Sri Lanka, operations in Weligama have resumed under strict health guidelines that visitors must follow. Domestic travellers and ex-pats living in Sri Lanka are currently allowed to take Weligama Whale Watching trip.
Sri Lanka is expecting to open borders to international travellers from August 1, 2020. We are continuing to monitor the situation and will provide updates if the opening date were to change.
