Whale Watching with Indigo Ocean

Commercial whale watching in Sri Lanka was first mooted in the 1980s following documentation of whale sightings in the Trincomalee bay by marine biologists of the research vessel The Tulip. They found out that blue whales and sperm whales were coming into the Trincomalee harbour using a submarine canyon. Whales of Trincomalee had also featured in the award winning film “Whales weep not”, the first underwater filming of Sperm whales in their natural habitat. Though Trincomalee was earlier tipped to be a whale watching hot spot, security restrictions had shelved projects to develop whale watching in the area.
