Whale & Dolphin Watching Full Day Tour in Kalpitiya

The ultimate destination for offshore dolphin and whale watching on the island is in Kalpitiya. Its continental shelf lies within close range of the shoreline; therefore the coastal waters are often the haunt of marvellous dolphin pods and whales. It is an ideal location for dolphin and whale sightings as one need not venture far out into the ocean since the continental shelf of Kalpitiya lies within close range of the shoreline. Therefore, numerous species of marine life could be spotted a short boat ride away from the shore. If you are in Kalpitiya between November and March/April, the conditions are perfect to catch a glimpse of diverse sea mammals as the waters remain relatively calm and enhances visibility. Among some of the other commonly spotted dolphin species are: Bottlenose, Risso’s, Indo-Pacific and Humpback Dolphins.

    Stop At: Boat Trip Kalpitiya | Dolphin Watching, no.155, Boat Trip, Kalpitiya 61360, Sri Lanka

    Kalpitiya is perfect for dolphin and whale watching, as you do not have to head out too deep into the Ocean: the continental shelf is much closer than reported in admiralty charts, so much so, the shelf actually runs near and alongside the shoreline. This translates into being able to see many species of marine life - in just a short boat ride away from the shore. You will be led by trained English-speaking guides, who will brief you on everything you wish to know about the dolphins/whales you encounter. Watching dolphins leap, swimming alongside you and under your boat - will truly be an unforgettable experience!
