Since the lost whales of Trinco were rediscovered in 2010, by a team of naturalists at Cinnamon Nature Trails, numerous sightings of blue whales, sperm whales and dolphins have taken place, making the season up in the east a rewarding experience.
The great blue off the coast of Trincomalee seems to be a popular playground for these marvellous marine mammals during March through April each year.
As in previous years, the Cinnamon Nature Trails team is ready to take guests on a voyage that will almost guarantee a sighting of whales and dolphins, including a glimpse of a super pod of sperm whales often seen in Trinco during this period.
With all safety measures in place and a crew well experienced to make your cruise pleasurable, the eastern whale watch is set to begin shortly off the city by the sea.
Head of Eco Tourism for John Keells Resorts Chitral Jayatilake mentioned that all guests who will flock to Trinco this season for whale watching are welcome to submit tale fluke images for an ongoing blue whale ID program, while clear images once selected will be uploaded to a Flickr site with picture credit, making guests a part of an ongoing study to keep track of these gentle giants. Chaaya Blu Trincomalee is situated just a few kilometres off Trincomalee and was built to reflect a retro chic design. Its strategic location gives guests the opportunity to experience these large marine mammals and the acrobatic spin of dolphins just a few minutes away from the resort, or perhaps if one is lucky enough, just at the very shores of the sea at Chaaya Blu Trincomalee.
A selection of beach chalets, superior rooms and two suites make up a total of 81 rooms, with two restaurants – one specialised in seafood – and two bars which cater to your every whim.
