Sri Lankan seas are known for the strange sea mammal the astounding whale. November to April each year is the whale watching season. Over the years Sri Lanka had turned to a whale watching hotspot and an international whaling community protected zone. Whales are warm blooded, marine mammals which are of the order Cetacea. They breathe air, give birth to live young and are found in all the oceans of the world. Whales are divided into two suborders, the Odontoceti (toothed whales) and Mysticeti (baleen whales). Mysticeti are toothless mammals while instead of teeth, they have a rigid brush like whalebone plate material which is called ‘baleen’ which hangs from their upper jaw area. Most of these whales are seen while migrating from the Arabian seas to the Bay of Bengal. A high concentration of sperm whales and blue whales can be spotted off the coast of Dondra during the months of December to April. According to marine biologists, these whales can be residents or visitors since the continental shelf off Dondra and Mirissa is quite narrow. Whale watching with Tripavi assures you a comfortable ride in a yacht ship with an amazing service oriented team, you will leave the shore by 5.30 in the morning and will approximately take you 5 hours depending on sea and wind situation. By the sun dawn you might have drawn further in the Indian Ocean and the breakfast plus snacks from time to time will be served.
