hi friends, Mirissa is one of the best places in the world for whale watching, especially for the largest marine mammal "Blue Whales". Actually it takes only six to nine nautical miles from Mirissa harbor to reach whale habitats. We are "Whale Watching Club'' ( not mirissa whale watching club ) operating whale watching tours for last five years and though our experience, we can guarantee 95% of whale sights in our visits. ( some one they use my business name and they cheating tourists). if you went go with us plz send me e mail. thank you ..manoj.

From the reviews on TA I thought the price would be 4000 lkr but due to the government they have been forced to increase to 6000 lkr. However, you are definitely getting your money's worth (although whale sightings of course cannot be guaranteed). Manoj and...More

While in Mirissa we (me and my boyfriend) wanted to go whale watching and searched for the best rated company to go with. WWC came top ranking and it was definitely all that we had anticipated and more. We saw at least 10 whales from...More

Really well organised, great snacks and although not the fastest boat out there we seemed to be the first to spot the Whales and the guys knew where to predict they'd pop back up again! Sea sickness was tough though! They give you a tablet...More

Hi, i dont understand what you mean by "best charges"? But you have to be present at the office at 6 and the costs are 6000 lkr. The boat has 2 levels and each level has a (sun)roof, so no worries about the allergy.
