Boat for game fishing can be chartered for 3 hours, usually in the afternoon. Rental of fishing equipment is included in the price. You can also use your own fishing equipment. Best season for fishing near the south coast of Sri Lanka is from November to April. We do only reef fishing, not deep sea fishing.
During the good season, hundreds of tourists are present at dawn in the colored and picturesque Mirissa harbor to embark for a few hours journey at sea to spot these huge cetaceans.
We were so excited when we first saw a sperm whale in the distance. When we were getting close to it, the sperm whale made a turn and it was very very close to us. As a result, I could hardly use my telephoto lens 🙂 We were so thrilled to see a second sperm whale.
Great crew. They guarantee at least one whale; we saw two sperm whales. Some passengers had seasickness issues. Suggest Dramamine a bit in advance of the trip if you tend to get seasick. They provide a lot of educational information on the way out.
Really great experience. Kids aged 6 and 8 loved it too. Saw sperm whales and a fin whale and dolphins.
