Cape Luxe Whale Safari

Embark on a voyage into the Indian Ocean off Cape Weligama, one of the best places on earth to witness Blue Whales, Sperm Whales and Dolphins. Sri Lankan waters are very rich in cetacean species with twenty-seven species being recorded to date. Watch Blue Whales, as big as two city buses placed bumper to bumper, surface as they forage for food, a picture perfect moment of Earth’s largest mammal.

A truly Resplendent Experience, we invite you on our Cape Luxe Whale Safari, an exclusive excursion on our 50 foot, twin engine luxury Catamaran with dining facilities and a spacious deck for lounging. The double hull and wide stance on the Catamaran makes for a more comfortable voyage.
