Whale & Dolphin Snorkel & Photography
March 2023 & 2024
In Sri Lanka, Aqua-Firma operates privately-guided tailor-made Wildlife, Cultural & Marine Life Safaris; and each March, an Ocean Giant Expedition to snorkel with Blue Whales & other cetaceans.
Sri Lanka has a long-established reputation for vibrant cultures; rolling hills stocked with the finest Ceylon tea; white sand beaches where men sit on tall poles to fish on the incoming tide; ancient temples and a British colonial heritage. It is also an island where rare tropical species of flora, birds and primates reside in precious rainforest refuges; elephants, leopards and antelope share forest, wetland and savannah habitats … and out to sea we find perhaps the World's richest tropical waters for year-round opportunities to see Blue Whales, Sperm Whales, Bryde's Whales and superpods of dolphins.
Our private safaris can be designed around whatever focus, locations and duration you wish, be that wildlife, expertly guided birdwatching, whale watching, photography, culture, scenery or adventure activities such as trekking, biking and rafting. We are experts at scuba diving too, which for Sri Lanka is best combined with our liveaboard and island-based dive holidays in the Maldives.
Aqua-Firma's private safaris provide you with your own driver / guide and Land Rover Freelander; or a larger vehicle if needed. In wildlife reserves, we switch to off-road open safari vehicles; and if you have a detailed interest in wildlife and birdwatching then we will equip you with a specialist guide with detailed knowledge of species and where to locate them.
Itineraries shown above are samples and can be adjusted according to your interests and needs. Prices are based on two people sharing and will be lower if more than this are travelling together. For additional inspiration, please refer to our Sri Lanka National Park & Reserves Guide and our Cultural Sites & Monuments Guide …. and better still, Contact Us to speak to one of our Sri Lanka experts and guides.
