Pristine Dive Sites in Sri Lanka

For the more adventurous, the waters off Sri Lanka are also a great place for wreck-diving. One of the best areas for this is off Batticaloa, south of Passekudah, where a famous World War II wreck, the British aircraft carrier HMS Hermes, lies half-entombed by coral at an accessible depth. The wreckage of her escort vessel HMAS Vampire, also sunk by Japanese bombers on the same day, has never been found – an opportunity for enterprising wreck-divers! Here your perfect base among Sri Lanka diving sites is Uga Bay, Passekudah, and once again, we’d be happy to arrange an expedition with an experienced and reputable operator for guests who are PADI-certified divers.
