Swimming with blue whales and sperm whales. Elephant and leopard safari.
Sri Lanka cosatal water is a homwplace to 26 species of cetaceans. The main target of our Sri Lanka expedition will be swimming with the most impressive of them. Blue whales, the largest animal on the planet, and the sperm whale, the largest carnivore. Every spring, blue whales come in warm waters of Sri Lanka, while sperm whales dwell here all year round.
Just imagine this encounter - you smoothly slip to the water from the boat and find yourself eye-to-eye with a leviathan size of an airplane, which slowly passes by you and dissapears in the big blue.
We can also meet several species of rorquals including humpback whales, killer whales, false killer whales, pilot whales and several species of dolphins.
The last, but not the least, we are going to visit the most interesting places in our part of the island. We will enter two national parks in search of wild elephants, leopards and other representatives of Sri Lankan fauna, we will snorkel on the majestic reefs of Pigeon island, we will drive around the island for the most significant local attractions - the temple of Velgam Vehera, the ancient city of Anuradhapura and the picturesque plateau of Sigirya.
If that is not enough, we also bring with us our freediving instructor who can help you to develop your skills if you want so.
