But the realization by a British Marine Biologist who developed a theory of migrating whales between the Bay of Bengal to the Arabian Sea, which brought these swimming giants close to the shores of Sri Lanka.

These whales would travel past the south coast in December-January from the Arabian Sea to the Bay of Bengal and return westward during April, going past Sri Lanka and the Maldives.

Since April 2008, naturalists have caught sightings of these marine mammals in large numbers and on several occasions, more than one species have been seen within a small distance of each other. Large numbers of dolphins have also been spotted during this period.

Since last year, a large number of naturalists and adventurists have visited Sri Lanka for Dolphin and whale watching and have returned with many exciting stories to tell.
