Diving & Packages

The coasts of Sri Lanka offer some outstanding diving on coral reefs, walls, drop-offs and wrecks. In the surrounding waters of both in Negombo and Trincomalee, there are lots of different species of Coral.

A selection of our dive sites are shown below – our standard offering is two dives in the morning. You’ll need to bring proof of your current certification and your diving experience.

Remember if you haven't dived for a long time, you may need to do a short 'Refresher Course' which we can also arrange.


Our dive centre location means we have great access to both the dive sites in Nilaveli and those also off the historic city of Trincomalee, with many coral species, fish and other marine life – as well as ancient statues at Swami Rock from the temple that was destroyed in the 17th Century! A flavour of the dive sites we visit are given below.
