February 2015 (10-day trip)

explore Sri Lanka’s reefs and untouched shipwrecks

The busy commercial capital of Sri Lanka is one of Sri Lanka’s best kept diving secrets. With over 10 wrecks Colombo offers world class wreck diving in close proximity to the international airport and a major city. Explore the immense cargo holds of intact freighters such as the Pecheur Breton (Cargo Wreck ) and the Medhufaru, play with the friendly lionfish at the Nilgiri Tug or discover history on WWI wrecks such as the SS Perseus. Most wrecks are in the 20-30m depth range and easy to access being less than 30 minutes boat ride from the diving center.
