About Tangalle Diving Centre

Tangalle Dive Centre is on the south west corner of the breathtakingly beautiful Tangalle Bay, on the spectacular A2 coastal road about two hours drive from Galle: 195Kms from Colombo en route to Yala National Park. Owned and run by the “Divemaster” Rohana, TDC opened at the end of 2007, offering the best diving opportunity along this part of Sri Lanka’s coast.

About the dives
There are a number of sites ranging in depths from 14-25metres, offering superb diving opportunities, whatever your diving experience. Running time to the sites is about 20-30minutes. Visibility is typically 7-10 metres, but expect 15-20 on a good day. We dive from November to April when Tangalle is blessed with calm seas and visibility should be at its height.

You’ll be accompanied by a local experienced PADI-qualified guide – whose expert knowledge will help you open up wonderful underwater landscapes. All our guides have years of experience of diving here and speak good English. They also have unrivalled knowledge of the local area, both in the ocean and on land, helping you to make the most of your stay in Sri Lanka’s “Deep South”.

The dive team is led by Rohana, with 15 years’ diving experience in these waters, who also runs the popular Sea Horse Dive Centre, along the coast at Unawantuna.

Our ScubaPro equipment is new and meticulously maintained and we also have underwater cameras for hire so you can take a record of your adventures home with you.

What you’ll see
Nestled among the rainbow of coral are angel fish, puffer and porcupine fish as well as lion and scorpion fish and shoals of barracuda. You may also catch sight of the hump-headed parrot fish, which makes it home in this particular area of the Indian Ocean. Shoals of yellow fin trigger fish, Indian groupers and fusiliers are also regularly seen. Of course, there’s always the odd surprise guest – we recently enjoyed a visit to the waters by the awesome whale shark.

As well as fish you can see lobsters, octopus and turtles – no surprise with the most important turtle conservation site in Sri Lanka just minutes away.

Those with a particularly adventurous spirit will be excited by the chance to dive in such a relatively unexplored area – with many stories of shipwrecks, caves and coral tunnels there is the potential for would-be pioneers to discover many more underwater treasures.
