In yesterday's blog post we mentioned, that besides peak season in April there is a second whale watching season in Mirissa at Sri Lanka's south coast from July till September. However during roughly the same period, starting in May and lasting till October, Sri Lanka's main destination for whal watchers is Trincomalee at the northeastern coast of the island. Though there are fewer blue whales than during Mirissa's whale season from November till April, chances are quite good to observe the largest creatures that have ever existed on earth. However, at both places there is no blue whale guarantee during northern hemisphere summer months, and there is no guarantee, either, that boats will leave for whale watching on any given day. So better check in advance by contacting your hotel.
