Mirissa Whale Watch™ provides passengers with the adventure of a lifetime through excellent customer service, Good Boats, the highest possible safety standards and added value from an on-the-water education of the South coast Eco-System. Join our professional Naturalists for a 3 to 5 hour whale watching tour, starting in the picturesque South Coast fishing village Mirissa. Our vessels are expedition style Zodiacs specifically designed for marine mammal viewing. They travel over the top of the water instead of pounding through it increasing passenger comfort and safety as well as reducing the chance of seasickness.
