When we want Whale and Dolphin watching in Mirissa we walked up around 06.00 in the morning, went with a tuk-tuk to the boat. Then we went on the boat for around 1-2 hours out in the sea, had our breakfast on the boat and waited to watch the Whales. Suddenly we had found them, or suddenly for us tourists. Of course our crew had looked for them all they way. They know where to find them. Amazing feeling to see these incredible whales being in the ocean.ย  A blue whale has the Length on around 30 meters (98ft) and 180 tonnes. The moment when you the whales go up with their tales is a sparkling moment.

The tour is a half day attraction. If you get seasick, maybe take a pill. We loved our Whale and Dolphin watching in Mirissa, we did see them. We did actually sea around 400 dolphins crossing the ocean. Incredible to see them being wild and free. They were jumping over the ocean in pure joy. Playing with each other. Or hanging out with the tuna fish that the local fisher was trying to catch for dinner.

 

If you not like to be on the sea you can always discover the 7 highlights of Ella in the hill country of Sri Lanka. Climb the mountains either Little Adams Peak or the actually Adams Peak with 5 381 steps, or if that is not for you just explore where to go in Sri Lanka it is beautiful! Another place you can do whale watching is in New Zealand at Kaikoura. To be honest, I saved my whale watching tour to Sri Lanka, it was warmer and less pricey. Bacpacking in Sri Lanka gives you good value for your money. One of the things you must have on your list either backpacking or being on vacation is Whale and Dolphin Watching in Mirissa.
