TOUR ITINERARY

Day-01 Arrival at Kalpitiya

Arrival at the Hotel in Kalpitiya for Dinner.

We could arrange transportation and Hotel accommodation for at supplementary charges. Hotel accommodation wary from budget guest houses to up-market Luxury Movable Tented Camp www.mahoora.lk  and could be customized to your budget and taste. Our recommended hotels/ camps are available in Kalpitiya itself.  

Despite its natural beauty, the western peninsular area of KALPITIYA in the Puttalam district of Sri Lanka is remarkably untouched by tourism. But for those lucky enough to visit, there's a plethora of things to see and do! With the small close-knit fishing community dominating the lives of the local people, visitors can get a real insight into working life away from the city. After watching the night fishing boats return in the morning, a visit to one of the fish markets offers the opportunity to choose the evening meal direct from the fresh catch! The Dutch Fort and St Peter's Kerk church in the town itself are interesting examples of Sri Lanka's rich history and colonial past. Leisurely boat rides up the lagoon and canoe trips down the river are a pleasant way of exploring the coastline, whilst 4WD jeep rides along the deserted sand dunes between the ocean and the lagoon offer a unique way of watching the colourful evening sunsets.  

For keen scuba divers and snorkellers, the largest coral reef in Sri Lanka (‘bar reef') is only an hour's boat trip from Kalpitiya. This beautiful reef is home to an incredible variety of tropical fish as well as offering sighting of manta rays, reef sharks and the occasional turtle!

Dinner and overnight stay at your hotel / camp.
 

Day-02 Whale Watching - Departure

Leave the Hotel around 6.30 am after an early breakfast.

Transportation needs to be arranged by the client and again we could do this at a supplementary cost.  

Whale Watching in the Sea off Kalpitiya.

Though whale sightings are not that frequent off Kalpitiya compared to Dondra, it’s still one of the best places to see the ever smiling and singing chirpy Dolphins.  If you are at the right place at the right time - which you can entrust to us - the spinner dolphins in Kalpitiya will give a show in their hundreds, perhaps even in their thousands.

Whales seen include:-
Common Blue Whales , Bryde's Whales , Sperm Whales , Killer Whales , False Killer , Dwarf , Melon Headed Whales , Cuvier's Beaked Whales and if lucky, the elusive Indian Blue Whales.

Dolphines seen include:-
Spotted Dolphins, Spinner Dolphins, Fraser's Dolphins, Risso's Dolphins, Common Dolphins and the Bottlenose Dolphins

Back to the Hotel or proceed to your next destination after the Whale Watching boat ride.
