Dolphin and Whale Watching at Kalpitiya area Excursion, Sri Lanka

Region: west-coast | Location: Kalpitiya
Sri Lanka Dolphin and Whale Watching at Kalpitiya area
 Other regions: ancient-cities | capital-colombo | east-coast | hill-country | south-coast
Kalpitiya is an unspoiled tourist hotspot because of its nature and close proximity to the cultural triangle. From here stay at a secluded resort and take a speedboat to watch dolphins and whales in their natural surroundings. Though whale sightings are not that frequent off Kalpitiya compared to Dondra down south, it’s still one of the best places to see the ever smiling and chirpy Dolphins. If you are at the right place at the right time - the spinner dolphins in Kalpitiya will give you a show you will not soon forget.

During the months of November to March is the best season to go Dolphin Watching off Kalpitiya. At a time you can witness hundreds of Dolphins as they weave and jump out of the water. We arrange Whale Watching and Dolphin Watching Trips off Kalpitiya which will last for 3 hours.

 Located on the South coast of Sri Lanka, Hikkaduwa has a very vibrant lifestyle and is always bustling with some beach party or the other, Hikkaduwa is also home to one of Sri Lanka's largest coral formations, so planning a diving or snorkelling tour of the world beneath the waves is a must for any visitor to the island. The beaches of the region are dotted with a wide selection of surfboard rental shops, so guests are free to rent a board and brave the swells off the Hikkaduwa coast.

 Known to be one of Sri Lanka’s ancient fishing hamlets, the village of Ahungalla is as traditional as it is industrious, it is one of the few places left in Sri Lanka where one can experience the islands traditional mode of transport; the bullock cart, these sturdy carts are brightly colored and sometimes even come with a fancy canopy to shade its passengers from the sun. Visitors to Ahungalla can experience how cinnamon is processed into oil and its regular kitchen form, the coconut coir business is thriving here as well, watch as the local ladies weave these tough fibers into rope and a myriad of other artifacts, some of which are for sale and can be used to decorate the home.
