Diving in Sri Lanka is our passion! Thats why we opened our first Diving Centre 1999 at the beautiful Unawatuna Bay at the south coast of Sri Lanka. This is the official page of UNAWATUNA DIVING CENTRE, PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Resort, “The Original since 1999” and Sri Lanka's premier PADI Dive Resort, S-36133, and your gateway to the excitement and adventure of the underwater world! The Dive Centre is open every year from 15. October to 10. April from 8 am to 7 pm. The rest of the year, the month of the south west monsoon, with rough sea and bad visibility, we are operating at our NILAVELI DIVING CENTRE, PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Resort at the North East Coast of Sri Lanka, 12 km north of Trincomalee under good diving conditions. The UNAWATUNA DIVING CENTRE is a fully authorized PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Resort. It offers the perfect holiday under and above water.
