Next morning, we headed out into the sea from the neighbouring sea village, Mirissa, to see whales! It was an ecstatic morning view with the star-lit blue sky fading to make way for the sun to peep in from dark grey clouds and reflect on the midnight blue Indian Ocean. We ferried 15 miles into the ocean to see sudden fountain like burst in the middle of the sea. That’s how one tracks a whale in the ocean. Once you sight the biggest mammal on earth, you sit overwhelmed and stare at the huge, swift creature floating up to breathe in and then dives back into the ocean.
