"Once I was on a Boat on a Whale watching trip on the East coast of Sri Lanka. After 5-6 hours on the water, we managed to spot lots of Dolphins but not Whales. When we try to return to the shore suddenly 3 Whales appeared very close to our boat & circled around the boat for a few minutes. This is one of the exciting experiences I enjoyed a lot"
