The speedboat ride was an exciting adventure, merging high-speed travel with the sensation of gliding on water. The powerful engine propels you through waves, the wind in your hair, and sun on your skin. At just $500 (excluding Government taxes) you can experience the thrill of riding the waters on a speedboat.

About our experience

As seen in the video, we were able to spot 5 sightings of blue whales along with 2 dolphins in fairly close proximity. We got splashed all the time on our journey. Remember to rock the right outfit and have a towel handy because the salty water might mess with your vision, making it tougher to catch sight of those whales.

The staff at Chaminda Whale Watching made our experience even more delightful. Their fun and informative comments throughout our journey taught us a lot. They were very experienced and able to spot the blue whales before they emerged.
