We booked the private smaller boat as there was only two of us. Mirissa Watersports kept in touch with us and on the day the whole experience was amazing. The crew kept us informed throughout and were so quick at spotting the whales. The smaller boat was quicker and more mobile which meant we were able to get close enough, but not too close to alarm the animals, for excellent videos and photographs. They provided plenty of water and a tasty breakfast whilst aboard. I would recommend Mirissa Watersports 100% - thank you so much for a totally amazing morning.

If you happen to be in Srilanka, it’s a must try activity. We left Kosgoda at 5am and reached the place at 6:30am. Registration process was easy (name, nationality and passport number). We were escorted to the port by a guide and subsequently to the boat.

We went deep into the sea (atleast 9knot miles) and were surrounded by dolphins for good 10-15 mins. They were just everywhere!

Unfortunately we couldn’t spot a whale but the boat ride and dolphin experience was memorable.

We were served light breakfast - sausages and egg sandwiches and later fresh pineapple as a snack.

The entire trip was for around 4-4:30min. I wish they could have tried to go further to get a glimpse of a whale!

The tour was well organized and received friendly hospitality throughout the trip. Our heartfelt thanks to the wonderful team including Dear Chandi for organizing this level of tour and we as Sri Lankans are very happy and proud.

Cheers to Chandi and the team😍😍😍😍😍

Amazing whale watching experience. The guide who came along with us is the best and was able to spot whales from a great distance - before anyone else! Having A speed boat was a great advantage

Today we had the most amazing trip out by fast boat to find whales. And we found a blue whale almost immediately, thanks to the experienced captain and crew.the captain seemed to sense where the whale would come back up, and it must have breached at least 10 times very close by. The boat was very comfortable, they provided a lunch box for us and there was even a toilet on board. Excellent trip, and fully recommend the company.

We are a family of 4 and booked the whale watching tour with Chandi and the team. Chandi and her team went out of the way to make everyone comfortable. Sea sick tablets are offer to those who might need which is an attention to detail. The boat team driver too went out of his way spot the whales and drive close to them so we could see these majestic creatures in their natural habitat. The food and beverages served on board was adequate and overall it was a superb experience which we highly recommend. Thank you Chandi and the team.

We were searching online for a responsible dolphin and whale watching tour operator in Mirissa who could provide us a private speedboat tour and came across Mirissa Water Sports. We contacted them through WhatsApp and they responded quickly! They gave us a good rate for the private speedboat tour. They are very friendly and try to accomodate all your requests. We requested them for a car from our hotel at Galle to Mirissa and back, they arranged for that too.

On the day of the tour, we were picked up from Galle by the car right on time. Once we reached their office, we paid the tour fees and the registration process was smooth. From the office, we walked 5 minutes to the pier to get onboard our speedboat. It was an impressive speedboat with comfortable seats. We went deep into the ocean and spotted a variety of marine life - dolphins, blue whale, bryde whale and sea turtles. They also provided us with breakfast, soft drinks and pineapple. It was a fruitful 2.5 hours in the ocean. We absolutely enjoyed the trip and would highly recommend them.
