Finally... a good place to dive in Sri Lanka on the South coast. There are so many dodgy places.. This one is safe. Good quality equipment. Knowledgable staff. All good!

Hi, I am planning a trip to Sri Lanka in December this year. Are you open then? I notice some dive companies are only open for some months of the year? Your reviews look fab, I'll like to go scuba diving with you. Thanks, Nicola.
