Whale and Dolphin Watching

Aquatic Spectacles of Magnificent Proportions

During the months between March and September, the north-eastern coast of Sri Lanka comes alive with cetacean magnificence as whales and dolphins congregate in the azure waters of Trincomalee.

From Swami Rock, this is perhaps the only place in the world where you can catch a glimpse of blue whales from land, as they cross the submarine canyon in the distance. For closer encounters in their natural habitat, energetic species such as spinner, bottlenose, striped and Risso’s dolphins will escort your journey by boat. And on lucky days, you may even spot a killer whale in the warm tropical waters around you.
