Trip was good.
Got picked up on time, got equipment and food for the turtles.
It is really special to swim with these huge turtles and see a stingray as well as some little colorful fishes.
Do not expext too much from the reef or amount of fishes, these got damagesd by the Tsunami.
All in all good trip and great service!!! Highly recommend the agency/ Oscar

We got the recomendation from a local and we are fully satisfied with the service of Oscar. You can feel he want to give good service to the customer.
He also arrange different other stuff like tuk tuk or whale watching.

I just went snorkeling in Polhena with Oska! I wanted to swim with turtles and he made my dream come true! We saw three different kinds of puffer fish, a ray and so many other fish....but mainly I got to feed and pet and swim with at least eight big beautiful turtles!!! Oska was great and kept an eye on me and showed me all around the shore and corals. Go early for the best visibility and go with Oska, he runs a great operation. He is passionate about the ocean and all of its creatures. I look forward to enhancing my Sri Lankan experience over the next week as he shares his vast knowledge on a whale watch or diving in deeper water or kayaking or biking....

The Niwala river trip with Oskar was a real pleasure. Peaceful but eventful at the same time with numerous sightings of massive croc, baby crocs, numerous birds, cheeky monkeys, water buffalo and leaping fish.
The trip included refreshing fruit snacks and fresh coconut drink. Oskar kept us informed along the way and had a useful book to consult when the more rare birds were spotted. The boatman was great and took his time and was happy to reverse up to help us take a better photo. At the end it was sunset and we finished at the estuary with flocks of sea birds getting ready to roost. It was a beautiful and calming few hours. The boat had a canopy so we were protected from the sun. Highly recommend.

Oska took us on a trip down the NIlwala River this afternoon. Saw a couple of baby crocs to start with and then some amazing birds, bee eaters, kingfisher,sea eagles, Eagle owl, egrets, purple heron, kites, the most graceful fly catcher and on the way back, the meanest looking crocodile! The boatman was also really welcoming and prepared a coconut to drink and fresh fruit for us. We ended back at sunset with all the birds going to roost in the trees, spectacular show...3 hours well-spent, would definitely recommend 👌

Today we went snorkeling with Oska. He took us to a beautiful beach where he guided us through the water. After a short while snorkeling, we saw our first turtle! Oska asked us to follow him through the water and then we discovered another two turtles.
We spent some time feeding the turtles seaweed, while they swam along side and amongst us.
On our way back to the beach, Oska pointed out many types of fish and we even saw a Moray eel.
Throughout our whole snorkeling trip Oska ensured that we were comfortable and happy, and was also extremely careful to make sure that we didn't disturb anything living or growing in the ocean.
On the way back to being dropped off, Oska kindly took us to a Buddhist temple as his guests.
Thank you for a wonderful day that we will always remember.

If you’re looking for a great adventure, Oscar is the man! We swam with turtles thanks to his knowledge on how and where to find them. He provided us with good quality masks and fins, guided us expertly to where there were many turtles and we were able to stay close to them for a long time and watch them graze on seaweed. We also saw fish and even a sting ray. Oscar is kind, professional and a great guide. We really had a good time and will come back again for sure. Our snorkeling trip was something to remember for sure!

We had the best time with Oska.
We weren't sure if we needed someone to go snorkel with us but he totally proved us wrong.
His knowledge of the area and wildlife is phenomenal and his ability to find animals under water, even with poor visibility, was excellent.
We were able to see green sea turtles, a Moray eel, a sole fish and what looked like a lobster. All in a short snorkeling trip.
Oska was also able to help us book other activities, such as tuk tuk trips, places to stay and eat.

Thank you!

What a superb experience!
From him personally arranging tuk tuk pick up to drop off everything was wonderfully friendly and professional. He provided all the snorkelling equipment ( and a lesson for me the novice).
Oska’s knowledge of the local area and most importantly sea life is great ,he is very considerate of the environment and conservation of preserving the natural habitat for the sea life. Especially compared with some of the so called genuine tourist conservation centres .
Swimming with and feeding the turtles was an amazing experience and Oska also surprised me with an unexpected invite for kayaking to a nearby island which used to be a Buddhist temple.
A very welcome coffee was also provided.
This is a gem experience with a local guide and not to be missed.

This was one of the best vacations we have ever taken! Turtle bay is absolutely wonderful!! It is beautiful, everyone is nice and there are lots of activities to do
That place is just awesome! If you are beginner in surf or you already surf before and you want to improve, this is the place to go.
Surfer and it was great! Surf lessons are very good : quality material and great instructor. I never surfed before, and now I feel like I can try to catch some waves on my own.
Everything was perfect! We enjoyed every moments.. Thanks to Oska brother made this so much fun..
