Natasha Preston, from our supplier Exodus, offers tips of whale watching with kids in Sri Lanka:
"If it's something your kids are into anyway, it shouldn't be too hard to get them excited about the whales and being out on the water. I always find the leaders and guides are so knowledgeable that they can give you so much information and engage you without it feeling like a lesson. You might be out at sea for a couple of hours without seeing a great deal, but they're really good at keeping you interested, telling you more about their country and wildlife and marine life, so they're great for kids as well.
I think Sri Lanka is a great family destination. There's lot of interesting activities, interesting culture and history and fabulous coastline round there, so you can have a nice mix of cultural activities then spend some time down on the coast - enjoying the beaches, snorkelling, that kind of thing, for keeping kids busy.
