Why do I need a Private Coaching?

One or two dives with just you and your PADI Divemaster or PADI Instructor. This is a very personal, educational and safe way how to improve as a diver! Your private PADI Divemaster or PADI Instructors can thus adjust individually to YOU and can accompany and lead you during your dive. Our qualified PADI Instructors focus on your abilities and work at the right pace to help you to achieve the goals you set together.

I feel unsafe while diving

Maybe you have just completed your Open Water Diver course and do not want to do the same with a group of divers or you just need a little more attention to feel safe.

I want to improve my skills

There is this one thing which you would like to train on because you always have difficulties with your buoyancy/air consumption etc. Maybe you want to train and repeat this one special diving skill from your course.

I am just starting with my own camera

You have just unpacked your brand new camera and would like to try it out. Therefore, you need more time to position yourself under water or more time to adjust your settings. You take the private coaching to don’t stop other divers and don’t come in distress.

I have another reason

Talk to us! Do you have a special reason or you ‘re not sure if you want to dive alone or in a group? We are always there to help you with your decisions and give you the best advice.

Schedule

When do we start?

Our dive consists of two diving trips (morning or afternoon) with one or two dives each. You can start with us either in the morning, at 8:15, or in the afternoon, at 13:15. Please contact us AT LEAST two days before, so that we are able to plan this time for you personally. Best at least two days in advance!

Arrival (8:15 | 13:15)

Upon your arrival at the base, you will be welcomed by one of our local and international Divemasters and Instructors. You fill out the necessary paperwork and make your payment. We accept both card and cash.

Preparation

Then you are sized up for your equipment, if you aren’t already carrying your own equipment. Together with your Divemaster/Instructor you go through equipment preparation step by step. Once all the equipment is set up, checked and explained, you will have a comprehensive briefing during which you can brush up your diving knowledge.

This consists of important information about the dive sites, important local and special dive procedures, safety procedures, recall procedures, attractions of the dive site, marine life, dive profile, signs & signals, etc. You can also discuss which skill you would like to practice during the dive.

Departure (9:00 | 14:00)

Finally, we cast off! Once the equipment is loaded on the boats with the help of our staff, we take off to our dives sites, of which most can be reached within 10 minutes.

Diving

Once arrived to the dive site you will perform a buddy check with your Divemaster/Instructor and you are ready to go for the dive. At the beginning you practise skills in shallow water. During the dive the Padi Professional will make sure you feel comfortable.

Depending on the No-Decompression Limits, a dive is usually a maximum of 45 minutes.

The surface interval (depending on the planning of the Dive Computer and the dive profile) is usually covered by the drive to the next dive site. In the meantime, the equipment is prepared for the next dive. We will NOT go back to the dive centre between dives, unless absolutely necessary.

Return (11:00 | 16:00)

After your return to the diving school, we encourage you to talk about your underwater experience with tea and cookies. Our guides gives you feedback and advise you for your next dive trip, helps you to complete your logbook entries and identify different species that you witnessed during your dives.

Diving helps create a bond between people, all coming from different parts of the world, but all sharing the same love for the ocean, and we provide a platform for just that.

Difference between
south and east.

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.
