Mirissa is an ideal destination for those who wish to catch a rare glimpse of those beautiful and gentle giants of the Cetacean Order. Situated at the southern coast of Sri Lanka from beyond Mirissa coast lies the Indian Ocean its vast majesty right up to the Antarctic land mass. It comes as no surprise that these amazing marine mammals migrate through the vast and fertile stretch from December to April during the annual breeding season. Mirissa itself is a quiet and peaceful coastal town boasting unspoiled beaches.
Sri Lanka is situated within the International Whaling Commission's protected zone in the Indian Ocean. Of the 80 species of cetaceans observed and identified worldwide, 26 are found in the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal, which we can access freely.
Sri Lanka now has become one of the Hot Spots in the world for sperm whales, and blue whale sightings. Sri Lanka is also fast becoming a popular destination to see spinner dolphins, bottle nose dolphins, common dolphins, striped and risso’s dolphins. The blue whales are frequently seen in South and West Coasts of Sri Lanka, which is a part of their migration pattern. Dondra point Mirissa is the best place for such sightings in Sri Lanka, where highest probability of seeing whales and dolphins are a guarantee!
It is an exhilarating, enlightening and life-changing experience to see these miracles of the ocean face-to-face.
