The whales are back off the southern coast of Sri Lanka. The greatest opportunity to experience the mammals is at the beginning and at the end of the so-called whale season, which lasts from November until April. In the autumn the whales draw eastward, in the spring westward. The Giants feel especially at home this season in the calm and warm waters off the southern coast of the country and can bring their young into the world. The natural, casual vacation without Hotel operation offers a small private guesthouse on the River in Weligama in the South of the island. By this are offered guided tours to whale-watching.
