Itinerary

Day 1Airport / Galle

A Sunsmart DMC representative will be waiting to welcome you at the airport and arrange your transfer to Galle.

Galle is one of the ancient sea ports in Sri Lanka that was once governed by the Portuguese, Dutch and British colonial rulers and its iconic fort still stands strong today. The old port city is transformed into a high end shopping area with the old walkways populated with numerous boutiques, shops, restaurants and boutique hotels preserving the old colonial touch and ancient buildings.

Arrive at your hotel and relax by the beach or pool.

Day 2Galle City Tour / Mirissa / Sailing In The Evening (On Sail Boat)

Wake up early morning and sail to the deep ocean till sunset to capture the unforgettable and rare beautiful moments of sighting blue whales and the fascinating tall blows they make as they swim gracefully. Do not miss the magical moments when the largest animal to have ever inhabited the earth raise its fluke and dives into the deep blue ocean in search of its prey. The blue whales in Sri Lanka are known to fluke more often than any other sub species around the world. The playful and interactive dolphins will truly make your day full of fun and pleasure as they glide along with you while occasionally engaging in acrobatic stunts. Another unforgettable experience will be the flying fish you will see suddenly flying above the waters startled by the boats or large fish. If you are lucky you would get the chance to witness the sudden surfacing of turtles to take a quick breather.

Day 3Sailing-Whale Watching / Dondra / Tangalle

Make your way out to sea early morning by sailing to observe the movements and motions of the giants of the ocean, the whales and other mammalian and reptilian species.

The pelagic birds that spend almost their entire lifetime out at sea will keep you entertained as well.

Return to your accommodation, have lunch and leave for Tangalle.

On your way to Tangalle, you will see many fisherman engaged in stilt fishing gracefully and motionless. The art of these fishermen resting on top of poles waiting patiently for any type of fish to take their bait will amaze you. The stilt fishermen are among the poorest of the poor who make their living purely through this method of fishing.
