The only problem is August is not the main season for whale watching the main season is Nov-May. They will be boats going out but not every day and they have to travel further from the coast to spot the whales, bear that in mind if you a prone to sea-sickness.

I would suggest checking out the service operated buy Sri Lanka Navy. As it is operated by the Navy from Trincomalee (month of May to October).
