You can obtain a 4-day scuba diving course from a Sri Lankan Professional Diving School by the beach. Beginner divers aren’t allowed to go too deep or range too far, but there are many wrecks around the coast that you can explore comfortably with a guide. Check out the lush Staghorn Coral Reef, Leather Coral Reef, Irrachchal Reef and watch out for the Northern Indian Ocean blue whales as you dive. Some diving sites in Sri Lanka are better than those found in Maldives.........
