Frequently asked questions

What marine life I can see?

Every dive is unpredictable and unique, that’s why diving is so exciting. As we go off the shore we are in the real nature and no in a zoo. We cannot promise or guarantee to see particular wild animals. However we guarantee that our team makes maximum to find them and fulfill your expectations.

Marine life you may see include: Stingrays, Eagle Rays, Turtles, Moray Eels, Nudibranchs, Cuttlefish, Octopus, Barracuda, Trevally, Angelfish, Triggerfish, Soldier Fish, Surgeon Fish, Pufferfish, Fusiliers, Lion Fish, Sea Stars and many other coral reef fish. Whale Sharks can be spotted on both east and south coast. Black Tip Reef Sharks you find on the famous Pigeon Island, located a few minutes from our Divinguru® Nilaveli Resort. Whales and Dolphins can be spotted around Trincomalee while Whale Watching. If you get really lucky, time to time you might see them in Unawatuna too.

What is the underwater visibility and temperature?

Please note that the visibility of the water depends on many factors (tides, wind, etc.) which disturb the bottom composition. We cannot guarantee great visibility at all times. However we check the forecast frequently so we can advise you the best time for diving or other activities.

Underwater Visibility: In average 5 to 30 m, depends on the weather conditions, the current and tides.

Outside Temperature: 26 Degrees Celsius to 32 Degrees Celsius the whole year round.

Water Temperature: 27 Degrees Celsius to 29 Degrees Celsius the whole year round.
