Swim with the
biggest animal that has ever lived!
TO SNORKEL WITH THE LARGEST ANIMAL IN THE WORLD
March and April each year, blue whales migrate
through the warm, clear coastal waters of Sri
Lanka. When this incredible event occurs, we are there to
get close to the whales without them getting stressed, we
use small fast chase boats that hold a maximum of 4 free
divers. With the help of expert guides, we will put
you right in the path of the largest animal that has ever
lived, observing the whales as they feed, swim
Imagine this encounter: you slip into the
water in front of a behemoth and float quietly
above it or free-dive down to its eye-level as it glides
past. You feel like an insect next to its unimaginable bulk.
Perhaps you see a glimmer of recognition; a slight flick of
its eye in your direction. Then, the whale mysteriously
dissolves back into the deep blue void, surfacing 10-12
minutes later for another few breaths before diving again.
A CHANCE TO SWIM WITH AN
AMAZING SELECTION OF OTHER CETACEANS
The focus of this trip is encounters with blue whales but
they are not the only cetaceans that call Sri Lanka home.
During your Whale and Dolphin snorkeling safari, you may
have the opportunity to snorkel with up to thirteen species
of whales and eight species of dolphin, including sperm whales, humpback
whales, beaked whales, melon headed whales, pilot whales,
and false killer whales.
can sometimes be seen in extremely large aggregations.
Other than blue whales, the most commonly seen cetaceans are
Sperm Whales, Brydes Whales, Short Fin Pilot Whales, Spinner Dolphins,
Humpback Dolphins and Bottlenose Dolphins.
Long-beaked Common Dolphins
LEAVE YOUR DIVE GEAR AT HOME
Blue whales and other Sri Lankan cetaceans may be enormous but they are also very shy
animals. Noisy scuba equipment would frighten the whales into a
deep dive so it is far better if
we take a minimalist approach.
This encounter requires nothing more than a mask, snorkel
and fins. The most effective way to get as close as possible
to the whales is to judge their direction of travel, slip
into the water and float at the surface in their path.
STAY IN PARADISE
During your Sri Lankan Whale Adventure, your
home away from home will be the luxury Trinco Blu Resort
Hotel in Trincomali.
