Whale Watching Mirissa - 07/09/14
It is off season for whale watching at Mirissa however this year boats have started operating from last month. The peak season for whale watching at Mirissa is from November - April when the seas are calmer. Last weekend I was at Galle and decided to experience whale watching during off season and was quite amazed as we sighted about 4 whales, out of which some of them were fairly close encounters. As it is off season with the south west monsoon the ride was a bit bumpy (mostly for the first 45 mins or so) however was very much fun.
