    • Usually West coast (Mirissa) Whale Watching season starts in month of October to April. East Coast (Trincomalee)season will be started in May – October. so usually month of August West Coast will be little bit rough during that season but there is monsoon interchange there is two weeks time in west coast sea will get suitable for sailing. hence you can do whale watching in West Coast (Mirissa).

      This year season completely changed about whale sightings in Trincomalee and so far since month of May onwards we have not spot whales in Trincomalee but if your visit main purpose get whales sightings then my recommendation is sailing in Mirissa. because we can guaranteed whales sightings.

      • Thank you for the response. As I understand you are suggesting that I go to Mirissa for Whale watching in 2nd week of August as no whales have been spotted in Trinco since May.

        Will the sea be very rough around 14th -15 august ??

  5. Usually West coast (Mirissa) Whale Watching season starts in month of October to April. East Coast (Trincomalee)season will be started in May – October. Mirissa (South Coast) is fine for sailing and month of October is interchange of monsoon so some days sea can be little bit rough.

    This year season completely changed about whale sightings in Trincomalee and so far since month of May onwards we have not spot whales in Trincomalee but if your visit main purpose get whales sightings then my recommendation is sailing in Mirissa. because we can guaranteed whales sightings.

      Thank you for the inquiry and it is great pleasure to assist you.
      We are operating everyday and starts time would be 6 a.m..
      Reporting point is Nelilavili Beach – Near the Aqua Inn Hotel.
      cost would be USD $ 38 per person and 2 – 3 hrs boat trip.

      this is for your reference and since mid of June Whales sightings are poor comparative to last year. these days bit windy also.
      anyhow you can spot 300 – 400 at a time and it is wonderful experience.

  9. we are group of 10 people visiting Trincomalee on 4th Oct 2015, is that good time for whale watching? Will you be open that time?
    Regards,

    • Hello Mahesh,

      I do not think October is good month for whale watching in East Coast because during the month of October is monsoon changing in east coast and sea can be rough. so I am recommending south coast.
      possibility of whales sightings also high in south coast. contact Viraj for further information marketing@myceylonadvnetures.com

  10. Hi!
    I’m going to Trincomalee in September 5th and would love to get the chance to see a whale. How great a chance would you say I have to see one?

  11. Thank you for the inquiry and these days lacking behind the whale sightings in Trincomalee (East Coast) this is strange situation comparative last year. however you can spot bottle nose dolphins and spinners dolphins 500 – 600 at a time.

    if you are more concerning whale sighting you can visit to South Coast and there is high possibility of whale sightings.

  12. Hello, we are travelling through Sri Lanka from 12-9 till 26-9 We want to do a boattrip to see whales. What do you recommend? Normally Trincomalee would be the best option. But i read less whales have been seen. Is there a change to see them in Mirissa? Its not the season to spot them there, i read. Greetings

    • Hi Emma,

      Fortunately whales sighting got since from the month of August and I hope you can try both places now (trincomalee – East Coast and Mirissa – South Coast)
      But in your visit Whale watching is a major activity, then I would like recommend South Coast, because the possibility of sighting is high.

  20. Hi! Don’t you have dolphins swimming tours?

    • swimming with Dolphins can be organized but we do not recommend dive with whales. because we have notice whales are avoiding such locations, when people dive with whales.
