Sri Lanka as a tropical island is surrounded by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. The shallows around the island extend for several miles in some places, while there are also places where the sea floor drops down steeply, just a few meters from the shore. These unique features of the shoreline have enabled many advantages. Scuba divers and snorkelers are able to enjoy the sport and delight in the sights of the sea life in the shallows. Meanwhile, the deeper seas close to the shores (in places like Trincomalee and Galle) allow ships to anchor much closer to the island - making it an ideal resting place for them as proved throughout history.

Whether you are a beginner diver who needs safe training, or and experienced diver who knows the ropes, Sri Lanka has all the opportunities to satisfy your needs. Learn the basics of diving, or even get some advanced technical advice, from experienced PADI qualified diving experts. Dive into the shallows for a look at the colorful undersea corals, anemones, fish and other sea life. Explore the hidden nooks and crannies of the seafloor to discover the more secretive fish and other lifeforms. Enjoy the brilliant and active underwater sights that appear only at night as you dive after sunset. Explore shipwrecks offshore as you do some deep sea diving. The charms of diving are indescribable, they can only be experienced.
