Nestled in the heart of Southeast Asia, the little island of Sri Lanka is a delight for those seeking deep-sea diving adventures. With 1,600 KM/994 miles of coastline to explore there is no shortage of great diving opportunities. From healthy coral reefs thriving with vibrant marine life to breathtaking shipwreck sites, Sri Lanka has a plethora of dive spots to stimulate your senses and refresh your mind.
While diving in Sri Lanka is an ultimate bucket list experience, the seasonal monsoons influence the choice of locations. Depending on the time of year, Sri Lankan dive sites are either in season or not. The west and southwest coasts are perfect during October and May months and if your travel is planned between the months of April to October the conditions are just right in the Northeast coast. Popular diving spots in Sri Lanka include Trincomalee, Kalpitya, Weligama and Negombo.
