What people are saying about Southern Province, Sri Lanka

Overall rating

5.0 / 5

based on 2 reviews

we’ve been a bit unlucky at first because we hardly saw anything during the first hours but the crew made sure that we went home with something. There were many dolphins, a fin whale and a very rare whale shark so we were all cheered up! Also, we were cuddled with breakfast and fresh fruits throughout the trip.

Unfortunately we were not so lucky and only saw 2 whales. But that was due to the weather and the troubled sea. Due to the violent waves, you couldn't see much and many guests became seasick. However, the crew was very hard working and committed. Absolutely recommended with less wind.

Magic to see many whales

Absolutely wonderful experience to see so many blue whales. As always good service and helpful people who can answer all sorts of questions.

Everything went great, including picking up from another location. I can only recommend..
