AWARE - Coral Reef Conservation
Peak Performance Buoyancy
south and east coast.
Sri Lanka offers great diversity of dive sites. Differences between diving on the south coast and east coast are significant. You can find wrecks at 6 metres or even at 32 metres depth, magnificent coral reefs, swim-throughs and other specific dive sites. To meet your expectations, please check what you can expect while diving on the south coast compared to the east coast HERE.
When is Sri Lanka diving season?
Diving in Sri Lanka is affected by two monsoons, south west and north east monsoons. The best time to dive in Unawatuna (south coast) is from mid October until April and in Nilaveli, Trincomalee (east coast) from mid March until end of October. It’s simple, half year we are operating in Unawatuna and second half we are open in Nilaveli and Trincomalee.

Frequently asked questions
What's the best diving in Sri Lanka?
The main attractions in Unawatuna and in Sri Lanka are a lot of wrecks around the coast line suitable for all diving levels. We offer diving at the famous Wreck “RANGOON” that does down to 30 meters, the Wreck SS Orestes that goes down to 22 meters, and the Galle Ship Wreck at around 18 meters.
In Nilaveli/Trincomalee clear calm sea is waiting for you. You’ll be surrounded by different colorful fish of the Indian Ocean and magnificent hard and soft corals. The most popular is the Pigeon Island, located a few minutes from Divinguru® Nilaveli, where you can experience snorkeling with turtles and black tip reef sharks.

Do we dive from shore or boat?
All dive/snorkeling sites we reach by boat from our diving centres. For beginners we have shallow dive sites located a few minutes from the shore. However the furthest dive site for advanced divers can be reached only in 20-25 minutes from our diving centre.
