My brother and I had no idea about diving when we decided to get PADI open water certifications but after been recommended to them we realised they were the most efficient and professional, out of the other dive centres we checked. They were transparent and straightforward with all the questions we had and gave us the best deal. The instructor (Jehan Pieris) was very through and gave us the best understanding and diving experience. If your looking for the best dives and courses you should get in touch with them.

Excellent diving company for a visit to Sri Lanka. We were with them while they were on their regular East Coast duties. Great attitude, relaxed and fun to dive with. They clearly enjoy their work and care out what they (and you) do. First class

Did not realize there were so many awesome wrecks to dive right off colombo. The team was super, they know so much about the area, history of the wrecks, marine life and have a smooth running operation. Colombo will definitely be the next big dive spot, urban diving..... I will be back. Thanks!

This is a first rate company. Naren, a co-owner, particularly went out of his way to make sure that everyone had a good experience and lacked for nothing. These guys genuinely care not only about their customers but also about state of the environment and the local community.

The wreck dives we did were incredible. They would have been amazing on their own but coupled with the multitude of fish and great visibility made these dives truly outstanding. If you go, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

The diving scene off the east coast of Sri Lanka - at least around passekudah - is pretty much in its infancy and as such it makes for a fabulous relaxed experience with very few other outfits/boats/divers to contend with.

The guys at island scuba were extremely efficient, yet very relaxed and easy going at the same time - a perfect combination. I'm not sure if it was just pure luck or a reflection of it currently being a little off the beaten track, but I had a fabulous time diving the British Sargeant and surrounding area with just me the boat captain and james the dive master for company.

I've dived in many and varied places across the world and these guys run a slick but relaxed operation. The diving itself is not exceptional but there's plenty of diversity and it's well worth a visit.
