Sri Lanka Marine Mammal Watching Cruise

Indian Ocean

The ocean south of Mirissa has been declared as one of the best places in the world to see large pods of majestic Blue whales, between the months of December and April.
Along with Blue whales, other whale and dolphin species migrate to warmer feeding grounds in the Bay of Bengal, passing the island’s southern shores.
Embarking on a marine mammal watching cruise is a must-do if you are in Talpe during this season.

"Isle Blue is everything they say they are. They were a pleasure to deal with and were very responsive and informative. The pictures on their website are exactly what you end up getting and they provide full concierge service throughout your stay. My family and I had an amazing time and before we even returned home, we went to the Isle Blue website to check out their inventory for our next vacation. They really are just that good!"
