Whale Watchingin Kalpitiya

Kalpitiya is a sleepy little fishing hamlet that is famous for whale watching, as the temperatures and the marine ecosystem that thrives in its surrounding waters have made it a haven for the largest mammals in the world.

The gargantuan Blue Whale, the Byrde’s Whale and the Humpback Whale are some of the majestic marine mammals that you can see in Kalpitiya. Your whale watching experience here will be most successful during the months between November to April, as a large population of whales migrate from foreign waters, followed by pods of dolphins.

Contact your tour operator, or a company that specialises in the activity in the area to make sure you book your slot, as they do sell out rather quickly during the season!
