Scuba Diving Tour In Sri Lanka

Scuba Diving in Sri Lanka is currently a popular sport for both tourists and locals. With our island’s vibrant marine life, which includes a plethora of colourful fish and corals, as well as its pristine and wonderful seas, it’s no surprise that people visit our island for scuba diving activities.
The greatest scuba diving spots can be found throughout the Southern Coast, Eastern Coast, and Western Province, which is also a notable destination for deep scuba diving . Scuba diving is the greatest and most popular hobby since it allows you to observe a variety of marine life under the sea’s azure waves. There is a lot to see and explore; it is a one-of-a-kind water excursion, marine life, and the various sea wrecks that may be located and observed. There are many eels, fish, colourful fish, stingrays, and other marine life for you to
explore as you go along the sea.
The Diyamba gala, Derana gala, and Lobster Reef are the most popular scuba diving locations. These are the finest spots to go scuba diving. The Southwestern coastal regions of Beruwala, Bentota, Hikkaduwa, Unawatuna, and Weligama are also excellent scuba diving locations. All of these coastal regions are well-known for scuba diving and scuba diving. Sri Lanka is one location for your scuba diving adventures on a gorgeous tropical island with enough to see and learn. Like all of this and more, particularly if you enjoy wreck scuba diving.




MAIN DIVING POINTS



Negombo
Negombo beach provides access to both colourful inshore reefs loaded with fish and the Final Frontier offshore reefs. Many popular dives in this region include Barracuda Point, Derana Gala, and the wreckage of a WWII fighter plane.



Colombo
Colombo is undoubtedly one of Sri Lanka’s best-kept scuba diving secrets. Some of the greatest wreck scuba diving in Sri Lanka, and maybe South Asia, can be found just off the busy city core. Divers of all skill levels may enjoy scuba diving on intact freighters, WWI wrecks, tugboats, and barges. Almost all of the wrecks contain abundant fish life, and the oldest wrecks are encrusted with vibrant soft corals. If you want to get away from the wrecks, you may search for elusive reef animals on the various rocky reefs or explore the current-swept outer reefs with gorgonians, clownfish, and soft corals.




Bentota
Deeper offshore areas with strong currents attract massive shoals of fish to the west coast
Beruwala sites. This is a spectacular site appropriate for more experienced divers, with
stunning rock formations and good visibility.




Hikkaduwa
Hikkaduwa’s famed coral gardens make scuba diving quite popular and are known for their magnificent resorts surrounding the coast and sandy beaches.





Galle/ Unawatuna
Unawatuna is famous for miles of golden sandy beaches, but it also has outstanding west coast scuba diving, with several wrecks and rocky formations covered in black coral. This is one of the greatest spots to see Napoleon wrasse on a regular basis.





Trincomalee
Shallow dive locations and simple conditions, as well as a plethora of marine life, provide an ideal atmosphere for your first scuba diving experience in Trincomalee. Boat off further and land on Pigeon Island for some beautiful shallow corals and beautiful reef fish. On the other side of Pigeon Island are a scuba diving and snorkeling experience with reef sharks.
There are also various reef dives here, including Eel Rock (which is home to at least five species of moray eel), Black Tip Rock (where over 20 reef sharks meet each morning), and White Rock (a great place to find different species of ray).
