What's this trip all about ?

Learn Scuba diving & Go Snorkelling With Whales in SriLanka

First things first……
 
This is not a Whale Watching Tour (watching them from a boat), those day tours are cheap, commercial, touristy and available to everyone, but actually being in the water with these peaceful, gorgeous and totally harmless giants requires special permits and licences from the government, the Coast Gaurd, The Navy and the Wildlife Board and these permits are notoriously hard to obtain and are very very limited, and for good reason of course which means that this trip is only possible for a handful of people every year!
 
We have been doing these trips every year for the last 5 years and they are pure magic, every single time.
 

swimming and snorkelling with whales

*This trip is only possible in the months of March, April & May due to the migration pattern of Blue Whales and Sperm Whales around the area.
 
Only 5 people per group allowed as per strict govt regulation.
 

This is the trip that defines the word extraordinary!

And we say that from experience having already gotten an opportunity to be underwater with the biggest living beings on our planet for the last 5 years every year that we have been organizing these trips.

A Blue Whale, for example, is 80-100 feet long, the largest living being on our planet! Imagine a 10-storey building, underwater and moving next to you…. A child can swim through the arteries of a Blue whale!!!!

You can choose either the 6 Nights – 7 days trip package option and  do a proper 3 day Scuba diving License Course for Beginners or your Advanced Course if you are already a certified diver and on up to 2 of the days during the trip go on our Snorkelling with the whales excursions ( Full Details in the next Sections below) 

or 

You can come for a shorter 4 nights -5 days trip package option if  you don’t want want to do the scuba diving course or if you don’t have enough time, this shorter trip just includes snorkelling with whales expeditions and not the “Learn to scuba dive course”

Check the “Package Options” Section below for details of both the above i.e Long Trip and Short Trip Package Options

 

Either ways, you will be staying at a beautiful resort with all comforts to ensure you have a fantastic holiday….

And all this, right off a gorgeous long beach white sand turquoise water beach which is going to be your home during this trip.

The sunrises from this spot are just incredible!!!

“You Protect What You Love”, we believe…….

So here is an opportunity for only 5 people in each group to come along to Srilanka in March, April & May and fall in love and hopefully become the voice for these almost mystical creatures that are racing extinction!!

IMPORTANT: If our group dates (mentioned in the DATES SECTION below) don’t work for you and you are minimum of 4 people together, we can organize this trip on any dates of choice for you and your friends in March, April & May 2020

Itinerary

Day 1Land In Colombo

Reach Colombo Airport and get transferred to Trincomalee on the East Coast of Sri Lanka, about 5 hours away by Car. The rest of the day is free to soak in the amazing view and beautiful beach. In the evening you do a briefing with your your Scuba diving Instructor depending on the package option/ course option you have chosen.

NOTE: If you choose the short trip option( 4 nights-5 days -Only Snorkelling package), You will depart for home on Day 5 and If you choose the Long trip option (6 Nights 7 days- Snorkelling + Scuba diving course package), then you will depart for home on Day 7 as per the Itinerary below.

Day 2 - 3Snorkelling With Whales Days

On up to 2 day during the trip, we will go searching for Whales on a fast speedboat which we have chartered specifically to get an opportunity to snorkel with the giants with the help of our Whale Guide and Naturalist who has 10 years of experience with the whales in the area.

Please note that it is a maximum of 2 days because if we end up being underwater with the whales on the first try itself, then we wont necessarily be going searching for whales again.

The second half of the day, even on these 2 Whale search days will also be free to do whatever else you want to just like during the course days. The beach we are on itself is so beautiful that you would probably just want to relax and get some sun and sand and be lazy after all the hectic activity in the first half of the day 

Day 4Relax or Go Scuba diving

  •  If you chose the shorter trip package option i.e Only Snorkelling and No Scuba diving Course, then Day 4 is a free day for you to explore the area around and do other fun stuff.

 

  • And if you chose the longer trip package option which includes the scuba diving course, then for day 4 after breakfast, from morning to early afternoon you will begin  your Scuba diving Course.

In the PADI Open Water Scuba diving License Course for Beginners, you will learn how to use Scuba equipment to breathe underwater starting from shallow waters during practise and moving to deeper waters as the course progresses.

If you are a certified  Scuba Diver already, you will spend the first half of the next 3 days doing 2 fun dives each day from morning to noon at the various amazing dive sites around Trincomalee with an experienced Dive Guide.

The rest of day will be free for everyone to hang out at the beautiful beaches, eat awesome food at the several restaurants and bars all around and explore the area. You can even go on some fun optional half day excursions to nearby National Parks which are pretty amazing amongst other things.

Day 5 Departure for Shorter Package Group

  •  If you chose the shorter trip package, today you will get transferred back to Colombo Airport and are good to take a flight back on Day 5 anytime in the evening because it will take 6 hours to get back to Colombo.

 

  • And if you chose the longer trip package option which includes the scuba diving course, you will continue to be busy from morning to early afternoon doing the Scuba diving Course or fun dives if you are a certified diver.

 

The rest of day will be free for everyone to hang out at the beautiful beaches, eat awesome food at the several restaurants and bars all around and explore the area. You can even go on some fun optional half day excursions to nearby National Parks which are pretty amazing amongst other things.

Group Size (Important)

Learn Scuba diving / Freediving With Whales In Sri Lanka is a special annual experience and  is only meant for a handful of people every year……

This trip requires special permits from the government, the coastguard and the Wildlife Department since being underwater with Whales is a heavily regulated activity unlike commercial Whale Watching Tours where you just watch the whales from a boa

We are happy that regulations are in place and Regulations mandate no more than 5 people in one group to avoid scaring the whales with our presence!
