Frequently asked questions
How can I get from the Airport to Trincomalee?
More information on their website: www.helitours.lk .
The purchase of the tickets is only possible in person at the Colombo Helitours Ticket Office or at the China Bay Airport in Trincomalee.
You can book your seat online here: www.superline.lk , www.busbooking.lk
What is the best time to spot Whales and Dolphins on the east coast?
Most sightings occur between March/April and August/September, as whales continue their migrations around the island from the south coast (where they mainly congregate from December to April) – this means that Sri Lanka offers around ten months of continuous whale & dolphin watching annually at different points around the coast.
Do you offer accommodation?
