Dolphin & Whale Watching in Kalpitiya

Dolphin and Whale Watching Season in Sri Lanka

Best dolphin and whale watching season in Kalpitiya − Sri Lanka is from Mid October until end of March! During these months large schools of the playful spinner dolphins are dwelling just three nautical miles out, in front of Kappalady beach. Another 2 miles further out the continental shelf is breaks steeply into the deep ocean. Because of the converging deep currents and the rich sea life this is the preferred habitat for the blue whale, sperm whale and grey whale - the largest mammals which have ever inhabited our planet.
