Join us for this once in a life time extravaganza to free dive with Blue Whales in the clear, blue, warm waters of Sri Lanka!

Then on safari with Leopard, Asian Elephant, Sloth Bear, Jackal and Mugger Crocodile as well as a number of dry-zone bird species.

BLUE WHALES are the largest creatures on Earth, they are resident here and can be seen on most mornings. At this time of year Sri Lanka is home to one of the largest concentrations of pygmy blue whales on earth. They are a sub species of the Blue Whale, approximately 10 feet shorter 79-80ft long.

Sperm Whales, Spinner Dolphin, Orca and Bryde’s Whale are also seen intermittently. We will be here for the best chance to encounter migrating Sperm Whale pods, a wonderful bonus to add to the mix.
