Sri Lanka is a place well known among the nature lovers. It is one of the best places in the world for observing whales and common cachalots. This is possible thanks to the hot tropical sun, atmospheric conditions and clean water. Reaching 30 meters in length and over 200 tonnes in weight, blue whales are the largest animals on earth. The first meeting with an animal as large as the plane will certainly be an unforgettable experience. In the period from December to March you can observe the short-tailed whales. They reach the length of only 24 meters, but they look as majestic as blue whales.
