Lots of issues with poor visibility, best to wait until December. Otherwise great company, very thorough, patient, and cautious. And the boys throw in a comedy act for no extra charge.

Went out in the morning for 2 dives. The guides were very chilled and accommodating! The visibility wasn't great because of a storm the night before but still enjoyed it!

We had a great time diving with Chanu in Trincomalee during June. The dive sites were great, and they are very professional. Only downside was that we couldn't do the advanced dives that we chose originally but the ones we ended up doing were great.
