Working with the community – a great project

Having done some investigating prior to going on my holiday to Sri Lanka, I came across this company that were an hours drive away from the beach resort hotel that I would be staying in.
All of the dive sites that I wanted to visit could be accommodated by this dive centre and they were prepared to pick me up and drop me back off at my hotel each day. I completed 12 dives over a 4 day period and there were many sites to be seen. The SS Conch was the highlight wreck for me although there was plenty of sea life including Lion fish, Barracuda, Octopus, critters but to name a few.
Snacks and drinks were readily available at all times and the ‘local’ hot lunches were lovely.
The dive boat was in good order and could easily accommodate six divers.
It was before the main season starts (November) so the sea was a bit rough and this affect the visibility however this could not be helped obviously.
The Dive Master was highly competent as was the captain.
One thing that is important to any diver is that you have good equipment to hire and I can confirm that their equipment looks close to brand new and all tanks were recently tested.
I had the pleasure also of diving with some of the local youths that are being trained by this organisation, free of charge, so that they can go on to teach the next generation of explorers.
I highly recommend this centre and all the charitable work that they do for the community.
