We’ve teamed up with a local dive centre to offer you diving excursions and PADI courses. Scuba diving and snorkeling trips can also be coupled with the dolphin and whale watching excursions.
The Kalpitiya reef is the largest coral reef (307 square km) in Sri Lanka and it is located only 30 minutes from our camp. It serves as the ideal sea for keen scuba divers and snorkelers. The beautiful reef, exceedingly rich in bio-diversity, is home to an incredible variety of tropical fish, moray eels, octopus, stingrays and sea turtles.
If you have never tried diving before but would like to take your first underwater breath, we can connect you with our local dive instructor Sam. He will come to our camp to have a chat and brief you on the dive and together you will start your journey into the deep blue.
For the experienced divers that have their own equipment, we can hook you up with some tanks and a local guide to explore Kalpitiya’s reef too.
