Whales & Dolphins spotting in Mirissa

 2014 Feb 01 - 2014 Apr 30


Whale watching is the practice of observing whales and dolphins (cetaceans) in their natural habitat. Whales are watched most commonly for recreation (cf.bird watching) but the activity can also serve scientific or educational purposes. A 2009 study, prepared for IFAW, estimated that 13 million people went whale watching globally in 2008. Whale watching generated $2.1 billion per annum in tourism revenue worldwide, employing around 13,000 workers.The size and rapid growth of the industry has led to complex and continuing debates with the whaling industry about the best use of whales as a natural resource.




Lagoon Safari

Many people knows Hikkaduwa only for its wide beach down the main road running through the tourist strip. But Hikkaduwa has plenty of natural beauty if you are willing to look for it. This is a scene of a lagoon internationally famed as island hermitage (monastery) as Dodanduwa in south sri lanka, where Buddhist monks and nuns of divers nationalities, both from to east and the west, take up residence in solitary isolations. Who engage in Buddhist meditation and other practices?

This location is home to varied rare species of birds of alluring plumage, and also to uncommon reptile species where having lots of cultural importance due to the Shailabimbarama temple which is in the vicinity with its massive Buddha statue made of granite which is said to have been brought from India.

This place claims further recognition as owning the first Buddhist English School; Piyarathana Vidyalaya, in the island. Looms on a nearby hillock Kumarakanda Viharaya temple, a repository of learning that preserves hand written documents of scholars of yore.

The Hikkaduwa lagoon river safari is so beautiful at sunset where it's so quiet and peaceful out there, all you can hear is the gentle, rhythmic dip of the oar into the water.

This location is home to varied rare species of birds of alluring plumage, and also to uncommon reptile species.



Corral view

Hikkaduwa National Park is one of the two marine national parks in Sri Lanka. The national park contains a fringing coral reef of high degree of biodiversity. The area was declared a wildlife sanctuary on May 18, 1979, and then on August 14, 1988, upgraded to a nature reserve with extended land area.The growth of the number of visitors in the next 25 years increased the degradation of the coral reef. To reduce the effects to the ecosystem, the reef was declared a national park on September 19, 2002


Hikkaduwa coral reef is a typical shallow fringing reef with an average depth of around 5 metres (16 ft).The coral reef reduces the coastal erosion and forms a natural breakwater. The coast of the national park extends four km. Generally the coast is narrow, ranging from 5–50 m according to the climatic conditions of the year. Scuba diving is a popular recreation here.


The national park situated in the wet zone and receives a 2,000 millimetres (79 in) of annual rainfall.The rain is received in both southewestern and northeastern monsoon seasons, in April–June and September–November respectively.Inter-monsoon season is a dry period which is considered the best season to visit the park. The temperature of the water ranges from 28.0°-30.0°C while the mean annual temperature is 27°C of the atmosphere.


Seagrass and marine algae belonging to genera Halimeda  and Caulerpa  are common in the seabed depth ranging from 5–10 m.Seagrasses provide habitat to Dugong and sea turtles. Some species of prawns feed on the seagrass. Eight species of ornamental fishes also inhabit the reef, along with many vertebrates and invertebrates including crabs, prawns, shrimps, oysters and sea worms. Porites desilveri is an endemic coral species of Sri Lanka.Chlorurus rhakoura and Pomacentrus proteus are two reef fish species confined to Sri Lanka. Blacktip reef shark are found along the outer slope of the reef. Three sea turtles which have been categorized threatened visit the coral reef: the hawksbill turtle, green turtle, and Olive Ridley.


The reef has suffered high degradation due to both natural and human activities. The live coral cover was decreased from 47 percent to 13 percent in a coral bleaching event in 1998, induced by the 1998 El Niño. It has been suggested that at least 30-40 percent of coral reef should be restored in order for it to be capable of sustaining itself. Despite being designated as a protected area, the coral reef has been subject to constant exploitation including removal of breeding ornamental fish for the commercial market.


The two marine national parks of Sri Lanka, Hikkaduwa and Pigeon Island, received little direct impact from the Boxing Day tsunami.However they suffered from secondary impacts, particularly from terrestrial debris being deposited on the reefs. A collaboration work of conservation groups and volunteers was carried out to clean up the beach and the reef debris, including two large fishing nets stuck on the outer edge of the reef.

The Galle district of Sri Lanka's southern coastal belt (in which Mitiyogoda sits) is famous for a variety of moonstone.

Meetiyagoda, located between Ambalangoda and Hikkaduwa, is one of the few places where they are found in such high concentrations. Moonstones belong in the semi-precious category.


It is believed by the villagers that this piece of land, around an acre in extent, is blessed by the moon. The moonstone is grey and feels cool and smooth to the touch when polished and has a glow like that of the moon. The finest are bluish in colour and there are quite a few of them in these mines. At Meetiyagoda, you can see or even go down into the deep, narrow shafts from which the stones are mined.The small visitor centre will provide information related to this stone while the large shop on the premises sells moonstones as well as other stones.

Turtle watching

2014 Feb 01 - 2014 Jul 31


Globally, all seven species of marine turtles are endangered. Of these, five species – the Hawksbill, Leatherback, Kemp’s Ridley, Olive Ridley, and Greenback all come ashore to nest in Sri Lanka. These marine turtles are best observed on the coast of Rakuwa located in the Deep South near Tangalle. This strip of beach is a traditional nesting site for marine turtles and is protected by Sri Lanka’s Wildlife Department offices that stays vigil all night on Rekuwa beach to protect the turtle eggs from poaches and other animals. Set off late at night to Rekuwa beach and watch quietly as these giant turtles make their way ever so slowly out of the ocean and on to the beach where the nesting process happens. Up to about 150 eggs are layed in a nest that is methodically dug into the sand. After several hours, the exhausted turtle heads back to sea only to return time and again. A phenomenal ritual that is fascinating to observe.



Madu Ganga(River) boat trip

The Maduganga river is a shallow water body in south-west Sri Lanka, which enters the sea at Balapitiya. Madu Ganga is considered as Sri Lanka's second largest wetland consisting of 32 islands including two main islands providing shelter to 215 families.

 Together with the smaller Randombe Lake, to which it is connected by two narrow channels, it forms the Madu Ganga wetland. Its estuary and the many mangrove islets on it constitute a complex coastal wetland ecosystem. In has high ecological, biological and aesthetic significance, being home to 303 species of plants belonging to 95 families and to 248 species of vertebrate animals. It might be one of the last remaining tracts of pristine mangrove forests in Sri Lanka.The inhabitants of its islets produce peeled cinnamon and cinnamon oil.

The main treasure of Madu Ganga is its mangroves that act as a bio-lock to the area in giving protection to the variety of aquatic plants and animal life. They provide a home for different kinds of aquatic plants, crabs, shrimps, fish, various invertebrates and other animal life including crocodiles.

It is claimed that the main secret of the Madu Ganga is the tide. On any given day during the low tide the sea water comes inland and mixes with fresh water and in the evening, vice versa creating the magic of nature.Local and foreign tourists can explore the beauty of Madu Ganga through a boat ride that take a couple of hours.
