I went scuba diving with my boyfriend. It was my first time scuba diving so I had to take a beginners course before going into the sea. Sahan taught me everything I needed to know, he is a wonderful teacher. We went into the sea after the beginners course and it was amazing, we got the chance to see a lot of colorful fishes and other marine species. I felt super safe with Sahan by my side, he was very aware of everything and continuously checking on me. It was a wonderful experience, I truly recommend it.

In August my son did Open Water Course.with the crew. He had an amazing experience diving course. Me did some diving before but it has never been as good as here. I was told about all safety procedures, had some training dives in the pool and then we made it in the ocean! I felt any time save and professional guided. It was incredible, the views and the feelings after definitely worth it!!! The team is awesome! Everyone is friendly, caring and full of enthusiasm;) thank you guys for everything and I will definitely come back to Dive with you next season in Weligama.

I was blessed to meet all of diving instructors here in Weligama diving centre! My trip in Sri Lanka was mainly for diving, so I look up on Google map and found this PADI certificated 5-star diving centre, I decided to stay in Weligama and join their tours without doubts.

I’m a freediver as well as a open water scuba diver from HK 🇭🇰. I joined their boat out for freediving couple of days(they don’t have any freediving equipments/ courses, I just did it myself) I also joined their scuba diving tour to Yala rock and Noisy Rock. The locations were just 15 mins always from the shore. there were so many fishes u could see and it’s possible to see whale sharks if u have luck. One morning section for snorkelling with sea turtles, that was amazing! There was an area had some corals with greenery coverage, with so many colourful fishes that’s absolutely beautiful!

The experiences I had in this diving centre were so great! All the instructors and staffs were so funny and friendly, we made jokes to each others and dived together. They even invited me to their home having dinner together, that’s the best way for a traveler to understand about local life and the diving industry in the country a little bit more.

This time I didn’t have luck to see blue whales in the south coast. And I know it’s banned snorkelling with them here. I will follow the team to the east coast to Trincomalee months later for the whales as they told me the way they stop the boat without harming and scaring the whales. I can’t wait to dive with all the professional divers again! And I hope I will see all the whales and it will be a great ocean safari for me and my friends 💙🤞🏽

This is an amazing experience. Very attentive and caring instructors, good service. They support all the way, patiently teach everything and accompany at depth. I am very glad that my first diving was in this school and with a wonderful instructor Sahan.
