The Underwater Video From Our Previous Whales Trip To Sri Lanka

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 and gorgeous 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!
*This trip is only possible in the months of April, May and August due to the migration pattern of the whales.
 
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 on last year’s trip with 20 other awesome people who got to be a part of it.

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!!!!

Hope you didn’t miss the video of us underwater with the whales on this trip last year !

You can come for any of these two  6 Nights 7 days trips 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 expeditions ( Full Details in the next Sections below) , of course under the supervision of our Whale Specialist with more than 10 years of experience with Whales in the area!

If for some reason, you don’t want want to learn Scuba diving and just want to come for the snorkelling with whales expeditions Check the Package Options Section below for a Shorter version of the trip

“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 August and fall in love and hopefully become the voice for these almost mystical creatures that are racing extinction!!

Make sure you read the Next Sections Below for Dates, Itinerary, What’s Included, What’s Not Included and Cost etc !

Basic Swimming Skills are a must if you are coming on this trip.

You do not  need to be a champion swimmer to come for this but if you cannot swim at all, then this trip is not for you !

Note: This trip is only possible in the months of April, May and August every year due to the migration pattern of the whales.

Duration: 6 Nights – 7 Days

Group 1 : 7th August to 13th August

Group 2 : 11th August to 17th August

Group 3 (Shorter Trip – 4 Nights/5 days) : No Scuba diving, Only Snorkelling with Whales – 11th August to 15th August

 

IMPORTANT: If the above group dates don’t work for you and you are minimum of 4 people together, we can organize this trip on dates of your choice for 6 nights 7 days minimum in April, May or August only.

 

Learn Scuba diving / Freediving With Whales In Sri Lanka

This special annual experience 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!

 

We are a small company driven by passion making sure you get to be part of some truly unique trips around the world !

Here’s what our guests (who are now friends) have to say about BEEP Trips :

Facebook Reviews

 

  • Day 1

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.

  • Day 2 – 4

After breakfast, from morning to early afternoon everyday for the next 3 days, you will be busy doing the Scuba diving Course or the Freediving Course basis whichever course package you have chosen.

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 whereas the people who have chosen to do the Freediving Course for Beginners will learn how to use just their lungs to dive deep into the ocean without any equipment ( except for a snorkelling mask and fins of course) from a top Russian Athlete we fly down from Moscow every year specially for this expedition.

If you are a certified  Scuba Diver already, you will spend the first half of the next 4 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 – 6

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 7 

We get transferred back to Colombo Airport and are good to take a flight back anytime post noon.
