G Adventures has introduced two group sailing tours along the southern coast of Sri Lanka after seeing demand grow threefold.
The sailings will start from February 2018. The seven-day Sri Lanka Sailing itinerary, which departs from and returns to Mirissa, visits the old trading fort of Galle, remote beach towns and the fishing village of Kudawella.
It departs on February 2 and can be combined with a land-based itinerary in Sri Lanka to create a 14-day land and sea tour. Prices start from £1,099 excluding flights for a seven-day cruise.
The 14-day Sri Lanka Land & Sea includes whale and dolphin watching, a safari and visits to Galle and a spice plantation. The tour departs from Negombo and ends in Mirissa.
Prices start from £1,899.
Vince Donnelly, global sailing manager, G Adventures, said: “We’re thrilled to be the first adventure company to explore Sri Lanka by sea. They say great things come in small packages and Sri Lanka is a fantastic destination with plenty to see, do and taste.
“These sailing trips have a local chief experience officer (CEO), skipper, and cook on board, so travellers will also experience the local culture and flavours as they explore the stunning Sri Lankan coastline.”
The launch of Sri Lanka sailing brings the number of sailing destinations offered by G Adventures to eight, with 19 itineraries across the British Virgin Islands, Croatia, Cuba, Greece, Indonesia, Montenegro and Thailand.
