THE CAPTAIN & THE CREW
SMILES, KNOWLEDGE & GENUINE FRIENDLINESS
Raja & the Whales was founded in 2009 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 has a big love for the sea born from his close association with it from early childhood. Life on the ocean and life as a surfer has given him 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 are all family members and friends. 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.
