BLUE WHALES & BUDDHAS
A place of enchanting landscapes and deep spiritual history, Sri Lanka has endless discovery to offer. The nation’s past comes alive in the rich foods, the colonial architecture and the ancient ruins that decorate the country’s terrain. You’ll have the chance to harness this beauty on film while advancing your hands-on camera technique alongside our amazing team of experts.
Beyond the charm of the land and its people, more excitement awaits in Sri Lanka’s surrounding seas. Nestled in the Indian Ocean, this island nation lies directly in the path of the annual pygmy blue whale migration. We’re taking this tremendous opportunity to offer participants a unique workshop with two options: a half-trip or a full-trip adventure.

2nd LEG - OCEAN WORKSHOP:
Blue Whales in Trincomalee

Following our trek in the field, we’ll travel to Weligama Bay on the southern coast, which will act as our basecamp for the remaining four days. Leaving the shores behind, you’ll have the chance to test your underwater camera skills, as we dive into the ocean and await the serene experience of capturing rare pygmy blue whales on video. As we will be snorkelling, scuba licences are not needed, but you should be prepared to spend long days on a boat searching for whales.
