  1. :

    It was amazing experience watching whales so closely

  2. :

    I did the tour from Bentota and it was an amazing experience to see blue whales if we could leave at around 6 it would have been excellent

  3. :

    We hade encounter the first whale after about 2 hours of boat trips and later the other animal showed up, all the people in the boat saw 5 whales.

  4. :

    We had seen a lot within a short period of time, beaches, whales, Galle fort, sea turtle, Mangroves and masks

  5. :

    Never had such as closer loom into whales in the life time, what a wonderful experince

  6. :

    I never knew about Moonstones, learned something new and thanks for the opportunity to buy jewellery on an affordable rate

  7. :

    Walking tour in the Galle Fort is a fantastic experience, we saw blue whales too, overall very nice trip

  8. :

    This is the first time I saw blue whales and never though I was able to do it because the opportunity is very rare. We saw 2 blue whales, a sea turtles and a bunch of dolphins, a bit long boat trip 5 hours.

  9. :

    We could do many things within the day it is amazing, had the opportunity to see whales, sea turtles, mangroves birds and walk-in Galle fort.

  10. :

    We have booked the hotel with breakfast and dinner, therefore, did not want to go out for many days. This is a perfect tour program for us. We saw a lot within the day.

  11. :

    The tour worth every penny what we paid for, an excellent trip to south coast

  12. :

    Leaving early morning is the only issue with this trip other I feel this is the best one day program that can be booked from our beach hotels (Centara)

  13. :

    We booked a Sigiriya one day trip with a booking portal and Seertendipty organized it on behalf of the booking portal. Afterwards, we booked 2 one day trips (Nuwara Eliya trip and whale watching trip) directly with Seertendipity tours from our beach hotel in Bentota (Centara). The rates went down 35% when we booked tour directly with seerendipity tours. very affordable and the service is also very good and flexible.

  14. :

    We did the whale watching from Bentota and it was very nice and had a very close look into whales, I also had a closer look into the Galle cricket stadium what a wonderful sight. I wanted to see it for a long time because I love cricket. Galle Fort, sea turtle, beaches, moonstone mines many things to see.

  15. :

    We left the hotel early. It was very difficult to make my mind to wake up so early on the holiday. But it was well worth had seen a lot of things including whales and sea turtles.

  16. :

    Everything perfectly organized, and most importantly I paid only half of the price I was about to pay the same tour with an online popular booking portal. Thanks to this local operator we (me and my wife) saved about USD$ 100.

  17. :

    Our driver Jayanath picked us up from the Port Gate, in a car, air con. He was straight away so friendly and we spent a informative day with him in southern Sri Lanka. He was very knowledgable and a truly great guy Would recommend this to anyone much better than the ships trips what we heard when we got back. Many Thanks

  18. :

    We were picked up from our hotel at 4.00 am and saman gave some gas on the drive to whale watching ship. it was a modern very nice vehicle he also drove with cautious and we did not worry. But he told us beforehand he drives a little bit fast because we have to bet at the harbour before the big boat set sail. Rest of the tour was very leisurely and we had plenty of time to spend on our sightseeing. The guide was good and very knowledgeable.
