Kalpitiya is one of the best location for dolphin watching in Sri Lanka. The boats leave from various locations but the dolphins actually live in Alankuda area around 3km from the shore.Kalpitiya is home to more than 1.000 dolphins which makes it much better location than Mirissa dolphin watching. On top of that Alankuda offers widest species variety of whales in Sri Lanka.

Kalpitiya Dolphin Watching Season

The season in Kalpitiya area starts in November and last until April. The dolphins usually stay throughout the year, but during other months the wind gets stronger (good season for kitesurfing in sri lanka) and the waves become little bigger – so the boats prefer not to take any tourist on the sea. 

At the beginning and end of dolphin watching season you have good chance to sea whales which are passing by Kalpitiya. You can see more details in our article When to go to Sri Lanka.
