Whale & Dolphin Watching

A whale of a time – with dolphins too!

The blue whale is the largest animal to have ever lived on earth. And the largest resident population of blue whales is right here in Sri Lanka. Beyond the international shipping lines off the south coast of our island, blue whales are best observed off between the months of November and April every year, alongside acrobatic dolphins that welcome you to their waters. At Hotel J, we offer responsible expeditions with our local partners based in the Mirissa Harbour just under an hour away, and ensure that you enjoy this magnificent marine spectacle while maintaining the highest standards of sustainable tourism.
