That was a great trip, we have seen some whales and plants dolphins, some even chased our boot! 😃 The boot was good and not too full and we got some tea and a little breakfast. Thank you very much!

On our journey we saw about 6 blue whales and 15 - 20 dolphins. The team were very helpful and made sure we saw these beautiful creatures when they came out of the water. I would recommend Geeth and his team to anyone as they do a professional and friendly service to travellers !

We had a super time on Geeth's boat this morning. The trip lasted about 3 hours and we saw 5 blue whales in total, some several times, including a mother and calf. There quite a few boats out there at the same time; some of them completely packed full with people but our boat had about 20 people and you... More

I participated on April 1st and I really recommend this experience. We spotted several whales from close distance and a group of dolphins. Beyond this, Geeth demonstrates extreme attention to not disturb the whales or being too aggressive like other boats. Furthermore the boat is safe and comfortable and all the crew very friendly and keen to provide information.

A great morning in the Indian Ocean: dolphins and at least 8 blue whales. Geeth tried not to disturb the whales.

Saw about 6 tails. Bit overpriced for what it was. Given motion sickness tablets which probably good idea as quite rough out at sea. Breakfast included was cheese sandwich, bottle of water, banana and cake. About 4/5 other boats out at sea looking for whales- when whales came up everyone rushed over to them. All you can see is grey... More

It was our second trip to watch whales here in Mirissa and it was way better than the first trip. Geeth knows how to find them and how to get as close as possible. He also give you interesting information about whales. Highly recommending his boat and is super cheap too.

Lovely experience with Geeth and the gang. Super crew! Geeth seems to know by instinct where the whales are going to breach for air. Instead of following the majority of the boats, he actually listens out for the sounds of breaching and takes his time to establish himself at a location. Q
