Diving in Nilaveli

Nilaveli and Trincomalee offer a wide range of dive sites. At Nilaveli dive sites are rather shallow (10 to 20 meters). There are beautiful coral reefs and you can even find a wreck parts.
Nilaveli's main attraction is the Pigeon Island Marine Park, the location for some of our diving and snorkeling tours.
In front of Trincomalee the water is a little deeper (12 to 35 meters) and therefore it is suitable for beginners and advanced divers.
