Mirissa

Over View

Whale watching in Sri Lanka has received a boost with the identification of another cetacean hot-spot: the South coast of Sri Lanka, off Mirissa, in December and April, is possibly one of the best places and times to spot Blue Whales in the world, where they are presumably in migration from their feeding grounds off Trincomalee to the feeding grounds in the Arabian Sea. The narrow continental shelf in this area means you can see the largest animal alive in the world today even while your boat is in sight of land!
