The new Sri Lanka Aggressor is one of the few destinations that offers three unique marine and diving adventures; Snorkeling with Whales & Dolphin, West Colombo & Northwest Kalpitiya recreational diving weeks and Tech Wreck weeks.
During the Whale and Dolphin snorkeling weeks, guests will have the opportunity to snorkel with up to thirteen species of whales and eight species of dolphin. World renowned marine naturalist Howard Martenstyn will be onboard to offer education information on behavior patterns. Over the last 15 years he has documented over 3000 whale sightings around Sri Lanka. Thirteen species of whales reside around the island of Sri Lanka including blue whales, sperm whales, humpback whales, beaked whales, melon headed whales, pilot whales, and false killer whales. Two of the predominant species that are resident in Sri Lanka, are the sperm whale which averages 40 - 60 feet and the blue whale which averages 60 - 100 feet long and weighs up to 200 tons. During the Whale & Dolphin weeks, guests may also see up to eight different species of dolphin. These weeks depart from Trincomalee and Colombo depending on which charter you are on.
The recreational diving itinerary, West Colombo & Northwest Kalpitiya, departs from Colombo to explore beautiful wrecks and reefs. Half the week is spent exploring the wrecks and the other half venturing north for drift diving along lush coral reefs. The wreck dives may include: the Thermopylae Sierra, Chief Dragon, Taprobane, and Trug. With warm coastal waters and the continental shelf only 5 to 10 kilometers out from the Sri Lankan coast, Sri Lanka is guaranteed a wealth of coral and marine life all year long including dozens of ship wrecks that have become artificial reefs for local fish species and are easily accessible to recreational divers. One morning guests will have the opportunity to snorkel with the whales and dolphin.
