So I lost my wallet with all my belongings while travelling via public transport. Somehow, the lady who found my wallet managed to contact Sri Lanka Diving Tours as it also had my PADI license in it and Feli, Saasha (my dive master) along with the team and they were nice enough to trace me back. Thanks to the human side that your team had, I now have my wallet with the belongings. You guys were next level with the Open Water Dive Course as well as some of the dives that I followed it up with. But beyond that, its amazing to know that you guys have that beautiful human touch to you. Thank you so much Guys! Keep rocking..

We enjoyed the excellent service this dive crew does. Felician did a great job emailing me before the trip and when we got there we felt like we already knew them. He is very educated in diving activities, knows all the reefs, can answer any question about any gear or mix. One of my own gear hoses had an issue and he immediately fixed my regulator by putting one of his pressure gauges on for me. The captain Raj was so helpful on the boat with putting on our gear and setting up tanks. They use a GPS to always know where to go. Felician took us to a unique dive site where a ship is sunk that has 8 vehicles attached to it. They are bullet proof cars from ex presidents of Sri Lanka. SO many fish on that wreck. Thisara is one of the divemasters. We were diving with him, and we saw a fish caught on a hook that was attached to the reef, he immediately got the hook out of the fish and let it swim away. Dinuka the other divemaster helped us with carrying our gear back to the hotel, both are excellent divemasters and they showed us hundreds of nudibranchs , so many eels, and puffer fish, cuttlefish everywhere. And when you get back from diving, their cook makes some really good coffee and you can order lunch the way you like it. I have dove all over the world. I think this shop was the friendliest crew I have ever encountered. They set up our gear, they took it apart, they carry it to the boat and out of the boat, they washed it, hung it up and stored our gear over night. On the last night we were there, we went back to have a visit with the crew and ordered some dinner. Of all the places I have traveled, I think the people of Sri Lanka are the most friendly, kindest and considerate and appreciative people I have ever met. We were very sad to leave and I hope to go back someday. Thank you Felician, and to your wife, and the dive crew, Thisara, Raj, and Dinuka and to the friendly cook, you guys all made our dive vacation GREAT!!!! Kandis from Colorado, America

I have completed two courses (Advanced Open Water and Enriched Air) and six dives with Felician at the Sri lanka diving tours Negombo location and greatly enjoyed the experience. Felician's remarkably deep experience combine with his relaxed demeanor to be an excellent instructor, and the theory learned in the manuals and videos was underscored well during our practice dives. The visibility is lower than Cancun, but the abundant marine life and chance to dive a very interesting wreck made for excellent dives.

Our group of seven experienced divers spent ten days diving with Feli and his team in Negombo and Batticaloa. Feli was very accommodating when we were planning the trip and his team of dive guides and skippers were competent and fun to work with. His shops in Negombo and Batticaloa are the only technical dive centres on the island and can support the whole range of diving needs, up to teams of rebreather divers. The reef and wreck dives off Negombo were also excellent, with amazing diversity and abundance of marine life including octopus and cuttlefish. A new shipwreck, the ‘We Ling’ or car wreck includes 10 armoured cars belonging to former Presidents! It was easier to discuss trip details and gear requirements in person than via email, so don’t expect to have everything finalised before arrival.

Pros: 1) Excellent Dive Crew led by Feli and Sashaa - very friendly and accommodating 2) Very knowledgeable about local dive sites as well as dive techniques Cons: 1) The Dive Center is under renovation / construction thus repair work in progress and all facilities need to be done up - e.g. Toilets / Showers 2) Dive boats need to be more comfortable Overall : Will always dive with them considering their kindness and expertise.
