"Jacobs" Whale Watching Tour in Mirissa
Jacobs: The Jacobs is also powered by the most fuel efficient engines available. It is water jet propelled and driven by turbo engines that exceed emission standard requirements. The benefit to the environment is the vessel is extremely safe around marine mammals providing a reduced environmental impact. The benefit to our passengers is a fast, quiet and smooth ride. We joined the boats at 7am, arriving at pretty little Mirissa harbour just before. Mirissa is very much a working harbour: lots of fishing boats, the odd sailing boat, and on the day we were there a super slick catamaran that looked like it was on a round the world trip: its young-looking, shiny blonde-haired captain was already out running along the harbour walls with his top off, heart rate monitor on, looking like an advert for early retirement from a hedge fund on Wall Street. The way it worked was the boats would spot a whale and then converge on it. They'd then bob along for a bit before the whale dived. The boats would then fan out and head in the general whale direction. It would be spotted again and the boats would converge again. In this way the fleet followed the whales through 'Mirissa' waters.
