Whale Watching in Mirissa

One of the most exciting and popular things to do in Mirissa is to embark on a whale watching excursion. Set sail to the depths of the ocean in search of the sea’s mightiest and most gentle giants on this wildlife safari. Mirissa is located approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes away from our villas in Tangalle, be it Taru Villas – Mawella or Taru Villas – The Tangalle Social. Should you wish to go whale watching, do let us know and we’ll arrange it for you.
