Activities in Khulna
The Swatch of No Ground, a deep-water canyon a short way offshore of the Sundarbans, acts as something of a magnet to Brydes whales and bottlenosed dolphins. Between December and February, Guide Tours organises boat trips out to this canyon where schools of up to 750 dolphins have been seen, and whale sightings are virtually guaranteed. It’s a one-day excursion that is added onto the Sundarbans tour at a cost of US$50. You will travel on a scientific boat and in addition to watching whales, you get to watch the scientists at work.
