Sri Lanka Blue Whale Safari

A beautiful underwater adventure in Sri Lanka diving with whales. A truly unique opportunity to swim with blue whales, and be photographed alongside, the largest mammals ever known to exist on planet earth.

Colombo - Weligama Bay

You arrive today in Colombo airport and transfer to Weligama Bay on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. These deep coastal waters of the Indian Ocean are probably the best place in the world to see blue whales, but where most companies are confined to watching them from inside of a boat, we plan to swim and snorkel with these gentle giants. Spend the rest of the day settling into to your charming new surroundings and let the anticipation build.

Swimming with blue whales

The next 7 days are dedicated to seeing and being photographed with blue whales underwater with our expert photographer and blue whale specialist, Patrick Dykstra. When it comes to getting close encounters with the blue whales of Sri Lanka, his expertise is unmatched. You will wake early each morning before boarding boats to head out into the ocean, joined by professional local researchers, whom you will assist with their research and conservation efforts.

Weligama Bay - Colombo

Today you will be transferred back to Colombo for your flight home. Your journey is sure to be filled with incredible memories of the once-in-a-lifetime wildlife encounters that you have experienced over the past seven days.
