THE CAPTAINS & THE CREW – SMILES, KNOWLEDGE & GENUINE FRIENDLINESS
Raja & the Whales was founded in 2008 by Raja (Rendage Sameera Madushanka), a former fisherman who stopped fishing to dedicate his life to protect the marine wildlife in the Sri Lankan part of the Indian Ocean.
Raja and his crew – all family members – share a big love for the sea born from their close association with it from early childhood. Life on the ocean and life as surfers has given them a deep-rooted love of nature, a strong sense of conservation and the realisation of the need to protect Earth’s precious wildlife.
Raja & the whales’ crew members love what they do. You will experience the best service on board and the crew will be happy to share their profound knowledge of the marine wildlife of the Indian Ocean with you.
It goes without saying that safety at sea is one of Raja & the Whales’ top priorities. The crew members are officially qualified in life-saving, fire-fighting and first-aid.
