PIGEON ISLAND TOUR
Pigeon Island Tour
This boat tour will get you to Pigeon Island, which hosts one of the most exotic and beautiful white sand beaches of Sri Lanka. It is a perfect spot for snorkeling and relaxing. Under the guide of an expert boatman you will sail the Indian Ocean in a comfortable, safe and brand new boat. Pigeon Island is one of the two marine national parks of Sri Lanka. It is brimming with some of the country’s most breathtaking coral reefs and it is also home to a stunning array of more than 300 exotic marine species and colorful fish. The island is often visited by sea turtles, like Hawksbill Turtles and Green Turtles. You can easily find yourself snorkeling near beautiful Lemon Sharks or Blacktip Reef Sharks patrolling the area.
A minimum number of two customers is required to confirm the trip. If you are a solo traveler and you are the first person to book the tour, your booking will be put on hold. It will be confirmed, via email, as soon as the next customer makes the same reservation. In the remote case, the minimum number of requested participants has not been reached, you will be promptly contacted and offered alternative options. We want you to spend most of your time exploring and relaxing on the island. Therefore we accept only a limited number of customers per trip. You will not be waiting in long queues under the sun to get on your boat. In addition, to shorten your transfer time, our boats leave from Nilaveli beach. It is located north of Trincomalee and just in front of the Pigeon Island. We will pick you up at your hotel and will drive you by tuk-tuk to the departure point. On the way back home, you will have the opportunity to stop by at our Bar & Restaurant for a quick lunch, a refreshing drink or simply to chill out. You might want to combine your visit to Pigeon Island with an additional tour. In that case we would recommend the Whale Watching Tour, the Fun Fishing Tour, or the Trolling Fishing Tour.
