Sri Lanka Navy is pleased to convey the spectacular sighting of sperm whales thronging the scenic Kalpitiya seas. Naval craft attached to SLNS Vijaya of the North-western naval Command of routine patrol at 8.30 a.m. on April 14th detected a large number of whales frolicking in multiple pods at a distance of 3 nautical miles west of the Bar Reef.
This could be the largest single sighting of the majestic mammal at sea in the area. The spectacle offers a rare chance for whale enthusiasts to watch sperm whales very closely and capture their exciting action first hand in the sparkling blue waters off Kalpitiya.
