We conduct Responsible & Animal Friendly Whale Watching flights. Whale watching in Sri Lanka is an amazing activity to partake in, and is even more breathtaking when done through an aircraft as it does not disturb the whale’s natural habitat. Observing the majestic nature of the largest mammal in the world, the Blue Whale, from an aerial point of view leaves passengers with an incomparable experience and understanding of the true magnitude of the beauty and grace of the species. Our high-winged aircraft allow passengers an unobstructed  spectacular birds eye view from their window seats, making it a breathtaking experience.

The whole experience was incredible. Our pilot Harin was very professional and friendly. The view of the coastline is breathtaking from up top and we got to see around 5 whales - 2 of them dove in quick as there were boats close by but we had really good views (that you don't

A fantastic experience. The team at f-air couldn’t have more more helpful before the trip and on the day! We were lucky enough to see a blue whale 4 times during our flight. Cannot recommend this trip and this company enough.

Unfortunately we didn’t see whales, but many dolphins and “flying fish” instead! And our pilot gave us an scenic tour as a bonus. Loved to see Sri Lanka from this point of view!
