Close and personal with the world's biggest animal


Have you ever dreamed of seeing the largest animal ever to grace the face of this plant? How about actually swimming / freediving with it? 

You can do that and more in Sri Lanka.

The Blue whale can reach a length of close to 30m!!! 

Sri Lanka is one of the only places on earth where consistent and reliable Blue whale sightings happen year round. Swims are regulated and group sizes remain small to cause the smallest pressure on the whales.

Alongside the Blue whale, we will have a chance to swim with Sperm whales, dolphins, manta rays and other marine species.

Groups are small – only 4 guests to keep it very personal.

We run our trips in March to maximise the chances of encounters and of good weather.

  • Air Temp: 28°-30° Celsius
  • Water Temp: 28°-30° Celsius
  • Visibility: 30m+

I was about to say that I just got back from the best holiday of my life but that would offend the whales in Tonga. I can’t decide. My heart is broken – again, leaving those beautiful ocean creatures behind.
Travelling? Freediving? Only with Apnea Australia, of course! Thank you Erez for the most amazing photos. See you next year in Hawaii…
