Trip Info

Snorkel with the largest animal that has ever lived. In March and April each year, blue whales migrate through the warm, clear coastal waters of Sri Lanka. When this incredible event occurs, we are there to meet them.

To get close to the whales without them getting stressed, we use small fast chase boats that hold a maximum of 4 free divers. With the help of expert guides, we will put you right in the path of the largest animal that has ever lived, observing the whales as they feed, swim and socialize.

Imagine this encounter: you slip into the water in front of a behemoth and float quietly above it or free-dive down to its eye-level as it glides past. You feel like an insect next to its unimaginable bulk. Perhaps you see a glimmer of recognition; a slight flick of its eye in your direction. Then, the whale mysteriously dissolves back into the deep blue void, surfacing 10-12 minutes later for another few breaths before diving again.

Let Big Fish Expeditions help you plan your next memorable experience.
