Kalpitiya, Sri Lanka
Kalpitiya features Sri Lanka's biggest coral reef. Many travelers have left it unspoiled and unprotected. It is home to a wide variety of colorful fish and sea critters. There are various diving sites in the water, and we organize professional dive sessions
The diving season at Kalpitiya begins in late November and lasts until early May. (though this can vary by a couple of weeks either end, depending on the exact dive location and type of dive you want to do).
During this period, the west coast of Sri Lanka experiences optimum wind and water conditions, making it ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling. There will be little wind, little currents, and reasonably calm sea conditions.
This also happens to coincide with whale and dolphin watching season.
So you finished a PADI Discover Scuba Diving course and had a great time! What comes next? Of course, to obtain certification! After finishing the PADI Open Water Diver course, you will be qualified to dive independently up to 18 meters in any location on the planet (with certain exceptions for 10-15-year-olds). The course is longer, but it is really interesting and fulfilling.
The Open Water course lasts three to four days and includes knowledge development (video courses, knowledge reviews, quizzes, and a final exam), a waterskills assessment, restricted water practice sessions, and four open water dives. You'll also learn how to construct and dismantle your own kit, as well as how to properly care for it. You will be required to master a number of important techniques in both restricted and open water dives, which your instructor will show and teach you step by step.
Transfers, equipment rentals, and certification fees are all included in the price of all courses for beginner and qualified divers; they are not charged separately.
