I did 2 dives with Mr. Susantha - one wreck and one reef diving. The wreck is a superb dive site. If you’re only allowed to go 25 deep, this is the best you can do. We saw some schools of snappers, two big groupers, lionfish and stingray. The second dive was a reef and the rocks which was also nice but the visibility was only about 6-7 meters and the current was quite strong. The diving center is a new business and you can see it. The equipment was okay, well prepared and maintained. I could put all my equipment myself as I wanted. Mr. Susantha is not a talkative person and doesn’t smile too much. Therefore the communication is somehow limited. The briefing was really brief and done on the boat 2 minutes before the dive. The boat was small and there was no safety wests (ask for it since the waves are quite big). During the first dive Mr. Susantha was checking on me quite rarely since he was busy with filming the fish, which on the other side was nice since he shared the videos with me. During the second dive the visibility was bad and due to the problem with my mask and quite strong current I had difficulties to catch-up with Mr. Susantha. Overall experience was really good (especially the wreck diving) and I wouldn’t mind diving once again with Mr. Susantha.

Had a wonderful dive here today the 4th of Feb,Lee the Instructor was very professional,a lad from Durham,England,explained everything so clearly made me feel so relaxed as i have not had a dive in a while.I went on a wreck dive which was amazing,we just circumvented the wreck,but the amount of sea life was breathtaking.I would highly recommend this dive centre,and this area of Sri Lanka.Well done to all at the dive centre,and in particular to Lee well done BUDDY!!!

Friendly and accommodating dive centre, with very new equipment. Currently the only one in the area. As other reviews have mentioned, communication was a little tricky at times but it was good enough to get by. Visibility for both dives I did (25m wreck and 15m reef) was only about 5m but the wreck dive was still excellent. It was very nice to drink/eat a fresh coconut on return to the dive centre.
