    The experience was great, even though it was the off season, we still managed to see turtles! Great time and the host was so accommodating and helped us every step of the way. Definitely do it

    Great morning swimming with the turtles. We were invited in and drank tea before going out in to the sea to swim. The turtles were really close to the shore and we were able to get up close, a really enjoyable morning.

    This was great, I travelled alone to Sri Lanka and chose to do this experience. Host was great lovely and friendly I felt comfortable and loved the turtles , we were able to feed them and swim right next to them. The guide knew exactly where to find them. Went back to the house had tea and it was a perfect experience.

    A must-do in Mirissa! Probably the highlight of our trip. We were picked up from our hotel and were transported by car to the snorkelling location. We were very fortunate and managed to locate a turtle within the first 5 minutes of snorkelling, and Aja is well known by the turtles so they were perfectly comfortable with us swimming around it (turtles usually swim away fast upon spotting humans). Aja was very experienced and a great guide, and we managed to spot at least 12 turtles during our snorkelling tour, from small baby turtles to huge ones. Snorkelling gear were provided, and we felt totally safe with Aja’s guidance. Highly recommend!

    It was the most amazing experience for my mom and dad (I had booked this for them) and I can’t thank Thisara enough for being so adjusting and understanding. They picked up my mom and dad from their hotel and dropped them back. Plus they made sure that individually, both had their own special moments with the sea creatures. Plus Thisara was super responsive right from the start which is rare, so thank you so much for that! I recommend this experience for everyone without any reservations 🙂

    It’s been nice few hours. Every thing was organized for us, like transportation and equipment. The snorkelling spot was a two minutes walk away from the house. The riff is nothing special but you could see different fish, lobsters and two big sea-turtles. The guide showed us where we could discover something and led us safely through shallow areas where more animals could be seen. He was nice. After snorkelling we went back to the house. There you can have a shower. We also got tee with delicous cookies and bananas.

    It was an awesome experience! We had another couple with us, but they had done snorkelling before and could manage on their own. We were given all the equipment needed and were taken to the location. Thankfully, for first timers like us, this activity is close to the beach, which has been marked by Thisara & team. Aja, our guide is a well-trained local with deep knowledge of the area, where there are corals, and how to sight turtles and such. He not only gave us thorough instruction on how to use the mask and helped us practice but also guided us throughout the period to show us the life underneath. But I also observed the care taken by the team to keep the corals safe. Aja kept letting us know which direction we could go and were we shouldn’t be standing as there could be corals on the seabed. Overall surely a must go for first timers. You can definitely see a turtle and swim with it (avoid touching or feeding it though) and also see other underwater animals. We got to see a small ray, angel fish and some other beautiful creatures too!

    Это было великолпено! Снорклили с сыном (5 лет). И мне и ему нашлось все нужное оборудование, как и обещали. Ребенок ни разу не плавал в ластах, первые пять минут не понимал, что ему с ногами делать. Но вот когда мы увидели первую черепаху – моментально научился 🙂 Черепахи просто восторг! Плавать рядом с ними и наблюдать за ними – незабываемо. Мы с сыном под огромным впечатлением! Все очень понравилось!

    Aja was very patient and for a first timer like me, he held my hand throughout and navigated me well into the deep waters. We saw turtles, manta, eel, beautiful reefs and fish. Loved my experience! & would recommend to all. Ended the tour with a nice warm Ceylon tea and cookies

    Me and my two teenagedaughters had the most wonderful time snorkling with turtles, colorful fish and other living creatures in the ocean – surprisingly much in a small area with shallow water. We were nicely taken care of in a calm and secure way. Thanks!

    Good value and fabulous experience. I was luck enough to have to the whole reef to myself and interacted with three turtles. Amazing. Thisara was very accommodating as I was extremely late. I had trouble communicating and he waited for me without any drama. I was very grateful.

    One of the highlights of our holiday. Getting so close to wild turtles was an amazing experience. We must have seen 10+ turtles during the snorkel. Our guide was excellent & really knew his stuff. We also saw many other fish.
