What makes Kalpitiya a great choice for dolphin watching?
The Kalpittiya peninsula is flocked by hundreds of acrobatic spinner dolphins from early October. The waters are swarmed with these majestic playful creatures and they can be spotted swimming, riding waves and leaping out of the water in a twirl. The peninsula is home to the dolphins till march. During this period tourists can witness them doing dives, head slaps, nose-out and several other Ariel behaviors.
Another reason for the growing popularity of Kalpitiya is that the dolphin watching point is close to the shore, only a short boat ride away. The ‘Dolphin line’ is an area running north-south parallel to the peninsula and during peak season hundreds of dolphins can be found in the neighborhood.
