Trinco Blu by Cinnamon invites guests to witness an annual marvel – the emergence of the gentle giants of the sea. The first blue whale on the east coast has been spotted and the season of the ultimate marine mammal excursion has kicked off. Harnessing the services of the expert naturalists at Cinnamon Nature Trails (CNT) all guests visiting Trinco Blu by Cinnamon are welcome to explore the annual whale phenomenon.
Guests visiting this resort shall enjoy the cool sandy beaches of Trinco and even catch a glimpse of a great blue whale whilst soaking up the sun. The resort offers the perfect base to set out for a whale watching excursion, as visitors do not have to travel more than 6 km into the sea to witness a considerable number of sperm whales and of course the most anticipated blue whales. During this season, Trinco is the whale watching hot spot and CNT will ensure that guests will have as many whale sightings as the weather and tide allows. Further guaranteeing this promise, the CNT team has been GPS tracking the locations of all the eastern whales for the past six years.
Escorted by experts from CNT, guests will gain the added bonus of witnessing off-shore birds whilst scouring the sea for the great and playful mammals of the ocean – the whales and the dolphins. Cruising towards the middle of the sea, guests will find themselves surrounded by the beauty of nature. With luck riding onboard, guests just might be entertained by the mega pod of sperm whales. This is a miraculous and rare spectacle, but nonetheless possible, given there are perfect conditions. It is this exhilarating anticipation that a guest of Trinco Blu by Cinnamon is invited to take a chance on.
Commenting on this amazing experience, CNT Manager of Field Operations and Wild Life Biologist Vimukthi Weeratunga states, “Whale and dolphin watching at Trincomalee is a unique experience, as its waters are home to the deepest sea canyon in the country which meets the nutrient rich waters of the Mahaweli River, creating the ideal conditions required for a thriving congregation of marine mammals.”
