About
Kalametiya is a coastal wetland area that has an especially rich bio-diversity and is situated on the picturesque southeastern coast of sri Lanka. In the year 2008, Mr. KTH Gayan Geeth started a first Eco-friendly bird watching boat tour in Kalametiya Birds Sanctuary. Our love of the great outdoors and many years of experience has enabled us to develop some of the most exiting adventure and wildlife trips.

A very nice activity with a professional guide
Mar 2020 • Couples
We went with the same nice person, Gayan, 6 years ago and we liked it so much we decided to do an encore! We were a bit early, so he invited us in his parents home for somme tea and a snack. We started the nice and quiet slow journey over the shallow waters of the estuarium and counted 20 different types of birds, and a big varan. The guide spots birds long before us! Higly recommendable!

I am a swedish biologist and me an my girlfriend took the tour with Gayans young apprentice Pacindu. He did an excellent job and we checked of 36 species together even tough it was not in the morning. Stunningly beatiful and very competent sharp eyed guide!

Wonderful experience. Informative and relaxing.

We had a very special couple of hours on this lovely lagoon. We arrived at 8am, although if we could have risen earlier for sunrise it would have been even better. Gayans communication was excellent and he also waited on the road to make sure we didn't get lost. He then guided us to his boat a few minutes off the road, where we got on a small pontoon type boat. Chamila was our guide and he spoke good English and was friendly and knowledgeable. He knew the names of the many birds we saw. We were able to use their binoculars, which was great. If you like nature and want to experience it somewhere quiet and beautiful, I thoroughly recommend it.

Fun and quiet boat ride to watch bird
Feb 2020 • Family
We had a great boat ride with gayan's brother. He could explain all the birds we saw. He paid attention to our needs as we are traveling with 2 young kids (5 and 3 years) and one baby. Overall, good experience.
Of course, watching birds is not so easy but we're happy overall.

a peaceful nature trip
Feb 2020 • Couples
We can recommend Gayan Geeth who is a very friendly and excellent guide. You can see that he enjoys the peaceful Bird Sanctuary himself and loves to share this experience with his costumers. Just give him a ring ( 0094 77 706 0920) and he organizes a tuk tuk from your hotel to the Sanctuary. Very easy and not as expensive as a tour booked with an agency. It only takes 30 min by Tuk Tuk to get there. The Sanctuary is a wonderful peaceful place and very much a contrast to the busy coastal towns. Just enjoy!
