What you should know about Dolphin and whale watching in Kalpitiya:
Dolphins are considered one of the most intelligent mammals. The reason for this is their brain size, which is relatively one of the largest in the mammal kingdom. Their large brain brought the dolphins already in the 1950s the reputation to be particularly clever! Only we humans surpass them and, along with large sharks, are also considered their natural enemies.
Therefore it is also particularly important for us to stand up for the protection of the dolphins!
Dolphins are said to speak their own language, so-called “dolphin language”. They communicate in the form of sounds like whistles, clicks and squeaks and each dolphin also has its own personal identification whistle.
During hunting, dolphins communicate via ultrasonic waves. In summary, this makes dolphins unique in the animal kingdom.
During a dolphin watch off the coast of Kalpitiya you will not see a few animals or a small family! No, you can see up to several hundred dolphins at once. Like small surfers they use the bow waves of the boats to play with the waves. Perform partly fabulous jumps that always trigger a “wow” with the spectators!
