The balmy waters around Sri Lanka are home to a wealth of cetacean life, including blue whales, sperm whales and spinner dolphins. On land, the national parks have elephants and leopard, and this itinerary will endeavour to show you them all!

This small group tour will first take you in search of spinner dolphins, seen in huge numbers off Kalpitiya in the north-west of the country, before continuing to the south coast, possibly the best place in the world to see blue whales and sperm whales in the deep waters.

With Sri Lanka offering so much more than marine life, this trip also includes time to see the famed elephants of Udawalawe National Park and the leopards of Yala National Park.
