We did two boat dives, and enjoyed them both. Saw lots of colourful fish and a turtle. All staff were very helpful and friendly. The dives were a short distance from the bay - it is a beautiful area.

We had a lovely morning of diving with the guys from Weligama Bay Dive Centre. They were super friendly and professional, and the equipment was fantastic. They set it all up, and we just had to jump off the boat and enjoy! Super reasonably priced as well. Would highly recommend.

As an experienced diver I got to dive in small groups giving me the opportunity to take enough photos during the dives. The staff is... More

We dived right at the start of the season here and were really impressed by the staff. They recommended good dive sites considering it was the start of the season and the visibility is not yet as good as it gets. We saw loads of different types of fish and the staff were very knowledgable about the dive sites and... More

Here one gets first hand experience of the importance of currents which are not available in a pool. So you not only get the feel of the gear, but also the... More

Three of us did an intro dive. Belgian instructor called Felix who was young but very professional. Took his time and explained nicely. Only thing that let it down was the communication on the price. First we were told $50, then $60 and finally we paid $70. I don't mind paying the right price as was 3.5hrs in total, but... More
