The captain will set the sails around the Galle Fort and its lighthouse, where you will get a magnificent view of the old fort, then we will sail to Unawatuna bay near the Japanese Pagoda. The Captain will drop the anchor in Jungle beach. There you can swim, snorkel and do some stand up paddle board with our life guard.

While you enjoy the water, the Chef takes out the plancha-BBQ.

We too two families with a total of 4 children on a day's cruise. It was a great time. We saw mating turtles, one blue whale on multiple occasions, and hundreds of dolphins. The crew was very friendly. The food was simply outstanding. We wrapped up the journey with some snorkeling close to the marina. Everyone agreed that the trip... More

We took a 3h morning sailing cruise at Bentota. The catamaran itself, the crew, views, feeling and service was really top quality. Nothing less than in Europe. You get to the sea, sailing, snorkeling, a nice small island with a lighthouse, snacks, wine, etc. Truly recommend for anyone who wants to enjoy a half day leisure at the sea.

Nice yacht, friendly crew, warm and inviting water... all spells a great day out. The Skipper knows the local waters and ensured we had a smooth sail and enjoyable time, the staff really had fun together and that was worth every penny- champagne flowing also didn't hurt...
