About Sail Lanka Charter
Join us for an unforgettable cruise in Trincomalee! From 6:30 until 1:30 we offer unforgettable Dolphin and whale watching cruises. On board we will serve you a freshly prepared breakfast. After the whale and dolphin watching we give you the opportunity to snorkel, swim, stand up paddle and canoe under cliff with the famous Koneswaram Temple. When you come out of the water our chef will be waiting for you with his delicious lunch. Sail Lanka Charter is a spin off of the Building A Future Foundation. This non profit organization aims to educate Sri Lankan youth and create sustainable businesses to help further develop the country. The group teaches people technical skills, builds our own boats and charters them. Sail Lanka Charter is the largest sailing company in Sri Lanka and currently directly employs about 20 local employees and indirectly creates jobs, mainly in manufacturing and maintenance of boats and marina's, for more than 50 people.
