  • Professional dive teams and good service, Island Scuba (Dive India). The diving just off the coast of Colombo was a good introduction for me to shipwrecks. Both Brandon and Antoine were great guides, patient and understanding. Jez made it all run like clockwork. This is not a fancy operation, but i like the fact it was no frills, low cost, good quality gear and friendly folk. One doesn't need all the bells and whistles, what counts is whether your guide is with you the entire time down under and after - a fabulous dive group to go with!
  • Decent place to chose to go scuba diving. Location seems a bit odd, if you're coming from the road you need to cross the railway track but it's a nice long straight so don't worry. It is beach front and the railway cuts the whole beach off. It's just how it is. If you have a car you can park on the access road near the tracks. Staff are very nice and friendly, gear looked ok but I brought my own, and the staff were very helpful in loading the boat. The boat, like all around here, is a small boat with outboard motor. It's functional but that's it. Climb in, jump out and hold on in between. We did kettle and Clark wreck. Kettle was OK. (YouTube) and I really liked Clark. With a flat submersion and a cheeky little swim through opportunity it was very pleasant. They are quite the journey in a small boat so consider sea sick tablets if your prone 🤢. All in all enjoyed the day. Just wish I brought tablets......
