Snorkelling and Scuba Diving in Sri Lanka

A glance at a world map will show you that Sri Lanka is a tiny island just north of the equator in the Indian Ocean. The warm nutrient-rich waters, the hot tropical weather, and an ideal location makes Sri Lanka the perfect holiday destination for lovers of diving – shallow or deep. Diving in Sri Lanka’s waters is a treat, as the island is ranked very high in biodiversity – in the ocean more than in land – and some treats are available off the coasts in the form of coral reefs and even shipwrecks.

Sri Lanka diving tours are always a different experience each time, as the currents shift lighter things around the seafloor, and the species range you will find on one day might differ drastically a few months later. The waters are known for their endemic species of fish, crustaceans, and other ocean dwellers.

Snorkelling and scuba diving in Sri Lanka is not just limited to the more popular west coast of the island. The amazing diversity, in terms of beach terrain, in terms of wildlife available, and in terms of the culture and history of the area surrounding the diving and snorkelling spots make for a fun experience whether you are well-experienced in diving or are an amateur.

All our snorkelling and diving tours include at least one certified guide; you will also be provided the safety equipment and training required. Browse through the snorkelling and scuba diving itineraries below to see which one suits you the best.



We  booked two holidays with this company, one in 2014 and another in August 2017. We had great experiences on both holidays. In 2014 they booked us at a lovely cottage, beautifully located in the hill country with friendly staff and a great naturalist guide. For the recent holiday they put in touch with an excellent diving instructor who runs his own place and both my wife and I enjoyed three days of diving as well as got our PADI diving certificates. All in all, I think that they have a strong focus on finding high quality locations, good guides and other personnel. I would recommend them without hesitation.
