Mirissa is famous for its sands and waves, but there's far more beneath the surface: an incredible array of sea mammals can be found off its coast. Join a whale and dolphin watching boat in seeking out some of the species that frequent Sri Lanka's waters and watch them swim and play in their natural habitat. Out in the waters, you might be able to spot the largest animal in the world: the blue whale. You may also see massive Bryde's whales, long sperm whales with their calves, spearlike Fin whales, and the intimidating Orca, or killer whales.
There's nothing quite as luxurious and romantic as a private cruise to see the sunset out in the sea. Go on a three-hour cruise off the shores of Mirissa and enjoy your time over the shimmering waters of the region. In the golden hours, you are free to swim, snorkel, or do some stand-up paddleboarding out at sea before you return to the boat to enjoy some hors-d'oeuvres and a cocktail. Relax as you watch the golden sun setting over the horizon, creating a dazzling view.
