The many fishing boats and the whale watching boats getting read to depart at the Mirissa Fisheries Harbour.
Fishing boat getting ready at dawn to put out to sea. To some photos of this gallery I added various filters to give different effects for the first time. This is one of them.
Fishing boat with crew putting out to sea.
Frustrated trying to get a photo of the flying fish whizzing away like a small silver dart appearing from different points . Glad I got at least this one , though not very clear.
Small turtle seen.
Blowing through the blow hole
Whale going under. Surfaced about three times.
First sighting of the Blue Whale
Whale surfacing again.
This time the whale came up quite close to the boat.
looks like an anchor
After the blowing the whale dives under and then the tale comes up with the water cascading. This patten was followed with the whale staying under between 8- 12 minutes each time
Beautiful sea eagle seen close to the shore on the way back from the trip
Fishermen laying out a colourful net.
