Kalpitiya, dolphin watching, and whale watching are excellent possibilities since it is one of the greatest places to see enormous pods of dolphins swimming alongside and diving beneath your boat. The Spinner Dolphin is the most sought-after dolphin to observe since it continually breaches. Here in Alankuda, they come in thousands rather than hundreds, especially when the'super pod' forms. They are the most sought-after species because they constantly breach and like bow riding.
You could spend an hour or two watching them play with you and show off their aerobatic talents without feeling like you're invading nature. They are extremely social creatures. Something occurs every now and then that alters your vision of life and the world around you. Watching the playful dolphins may accomplish exactly that, and you will leave with a better appreciation of the waters around us and why we must do all in our power to conserve them and these amazing animals "like no other." Bottlenose, Spotted, Striped, Humpback, Risso, and Fraser dolphins are occasionally spotted here.
Six different varieties of whales may be found in the deeper seas off the coasts of Alankuda and Kalpitiya. The largest of Sri Lanka's big five can be spotted surfacing from time to time, and the sight of these mysterious cetaceans is both spectacular and fascinating, offering a genuinely humbling experience.
We'll get together at 7 a.m. You will be escorted to the boat after being briefed on the excursion and safety procedures at our center., and the dolphin viewing excursion usually takes place during the early morning hours and lasts around 2-3 hours.
