Nilaveli Diving Centre (2) - Uppuveli

operated by Ceylon Water Sports

The East Coast of Sri Lanka is rated as one of Asia's top dive sites and offers outstanding experiences for all skill levels. As the island essentially sits atop a huge sandbank that drops 3000m into deep ocean you'll usually find shallow sand or rock bottoms, but you can also dive on walls and drop-offs. Because you're seldom far from deep water, opportunities for encounters with pelagics, sharks and other inhabitants of the open ocean abound.

At our Diving Centre in Uppuveli Beach we are not only offering an extensive range of land and boat diving tours (all difficulty grades) that are supervised by our experienced team of international PADI Instructors but also highly attractive dive packages with quality accommodation directly at the beach hotel where our dive centre is located.
