Being relative newbies to diving the one thing we were looking for was PADI registered centres to give us comfort. There seem to be a few in Unawatuna that have PADI flags outside but after checking on the PADI site only one is real, this one. There is even a centre next door with a similar name with PADI flags all over the place.....completely shameless!
Anyway we must mention Nick (english dive instructor) and the two sri lankan dive masters who were all great fun and very organised. Tea and biscuits after the dives was all very civilised and there is even a local dog that turns up when the divers get back to sneak a few bikkies away.
We had two dives including a shallow wreck dive and although the vis was not great we enjoyed the whole experience and would recommend.

Glad you enjoyed your time with us, thanks for your kind words. I've set Hans on to the flags so I'm sure we'll have loads soon but for now still just the two. A little bit sunnier yesterday so the vis is improving ... slowly. Take care and and come back soon!!!!
