Sailing Experiences in Sri Lanka

What better way to respond to the “calling of the ocean” than by sailing away into the warm turquoise blue waters for a day or a few days? And, what better place to enjoy the ocean to your heart’s content than the charming waters of Sri Lanka.

Cruise the warm blue waters of the Indian ocean on board a luxury catamaran on a sunny day, watch the golden coastline of the pearl of the Indian ocean moving further and further away until blue skies and blue water is stretched for as far as you can see. Then enjoy the open sea from the deck of an anchored catamaran while sipping a chilled beer, and feel the exhilaration of riding the waves by Jet Skiing and Surfing or feel the calmness of warm blue water by Paddle Boarding and Snorkeling. Not forgetting to soak up the sun by swimming to your heart’s content.

And, maybe sail a little longer on an overnight or a sunset cruise to enjoy a glorious sunset as hues of color come together on the distant horizon and savor the nothingness of the night under a moonlit sky.

No matter when you decide to respond to the “call of the ocean”, Sri Lanka has a place to sail at any given time of the year, offering you a perfect blend of magic and luxury!

October - April: South coast and West coast

Mirissa on the south coast offer a unique expedition of its own, which can even be coupled with an elating whale-watching expedition, while Colombo on the west coast offers one of the best sunset cruises with a view of glittering city lights in the distance, perfect for a celebratory cruise.

May - October: North coast and East coast

Jaffna on the north coast offers a unique experience of less explored waters specked with a train of uninhibited islands, letting you explore a world away from the rest of the island, while Nilaveli and Pasikuda on the east coast offer clear blue water and exquisite coral reefs perfect for a snorkeling sailing expedition.
As you please, you can either getaway for a couple of hours or a few days on a private or shared luxury catamaran, experience the magic of the Indian ocean surrounding the paradise island, whilst having a good time.

Overnight cruises:

Wake up to the view of the first blush of golden sunrises, experience an array of water activities, bask in the sun while enjoying the stunning views of pristine beaches, multifaceted landscapes throughout the day, and as the curtain of the day fall, toast to the magic of fiery sunsets. This can be savored during one day, two days, or seven days overnight catamaran cruising expeditions on the south, north, or east coasts of Sri Lanka.

Day cruises:

These 3 hours to 7 hours cruises offer recreational and relaxing expeditions with sensational views, water activities, and smoky sunsets depending on the type of tour you opt for. If you wish to sail as your heart desires, you can always get a private cruise with a customized package, combining activities to suit the needs and interests of you and your loved ones.

Aside from the overnight and day cruises that are offered around the island, if a laid-back-relaxing catamaran sailing expedition is not your thing and is looking for a rather thrilling experience, the west coast offers Minibee sailing expeditions just for you during the season.
No matter what your “ocean calling” is, Sri Lankan cruising expeditions are designed to ensure you experience the very best of what the ocean has to offer!
