You may have to wake up as early as 4am to reach the harbour but I'm sure you will live the experience. Watching whales and dolphins right in front of you is no joke. It's an awesome thing to do when in Sri Lanka.

This was a great trip. I really appreciate their service. Trip was worth for money and they did not come back till we see the Dolphins and whales. I like to recommend this trip for anyone who visit to Sri Lanka for enjoying the nature.
