We had a fab trip in November, the team were friendly and passionate and determined to spot us some whales. Would recommend this trip as a great thing to do in Mirissa and value for money.

We saw two groups of blue whales, 10-15 of each group, they stay at the surface to breathe for a while, like several black submarines, then flip the tails to get down one by one.

It's a once in a lifetime to see these amazing creatures. Had a lovely trip out into the ocean, I wasn't actually expecting to see anything so it was particularly special. Thanks Geeth.

After a rough start regarding problems with our reservation, we finally embarked on the whale watching trip after a 2 days delay. Geeth was very nice and came to meet us at the harbour gate (we had rented 2 cars and Geeth saved us from paying the entrance fee). He made us a discount and we happily boarded the boat. The crew offers sea sickness pilss - don't take them unless you need them. They'll make you sleepy and you might end up fighting to keep your eyes open than simply enjoy the experience. First we saw a small blue whale, of course, surrounded by 10 boats fighting for a better view spot. There was one very nasty which always came in front of us and blocked our view. They never turned off their engine and even swam right over the place where the whale had just dived in. We stayed there for several minutes and Geeth decided to go find something different. Which he did :) We found a large number of pilot whales surrounded by dolphins. They came really close and we made some amazing pictures. Geeth stayed in the open ocean at least 1 hour after the other boats had gone back to the harbour. He tried really hard to find something more for us to see. Thank for everything, Geeth! Keep up the good work!

If you have never seen a whale, you may pay the 50$ per pax, otherwise Save the money and the 5 hours boat-trip. Not too much to see and if there arenwhales, the rushing loud boats effects, that they dive before your boat reached the place. Just a money making machine!
