Sailing in Sri Lanka
Not many people think of Sri Lanka as a sailing destination but all that is changing.
Plans to create a marina in Galle are just the latest example of a country that is taking to the water with confidence to offer another way to enjoy Sri Lanka's captivating scenery and laid-back lifestyle.
Red Dot primarily offers short boating experiences and activities, but we can organise longer holidays or even transfers by boat at competitive rates if you are planning an unhurried holiday and are keen to explore Sri Lanka’s spectacular coastline.
We use two reputable water-sports companies – Sail Lanka and Borderlands – to ensure that your Sri Lanka boating activities are safe and enjoyable and that you can be confident of high professional standards.
Sri Lanka's varied climate, influenced by two monsoons, means there is always somewhere to sail at any time of the year, including half-day excursions to private coves, whale and dolphin watching and sunset sea cruises. Sail Lanka can also organise a catamaran charter through Sail Lanka as well as longer sailing journeys, such as spending six nights at sea exploring Sri Lanka’s remote northern islands.
Borderlands are more activity-orientated. Go whale watching in Sri Lanka or sample other boat-based activities such as kayaking or sea kayaking and white water rafting.
