hi friends, Mirissa is one of the best places in the world for whale watching, especially for the largest marine mammal "Blue Whales". Actually it takes only six to nine nautical miles from Mirissa harbor to reach whale habitats. We are "Whale Watching Club'' ( not mirissa whale watching club ) operating whale watching tours for last five years and though our experience, we can guarantee 95% of whale sights in our visits. ( some one they use my business name and they cheating tourists). if you went go with us plz send me e mail or call me thank you ..manoj.
