  • problem management
  • Breathe of compressed air in the depth
  • Scuba diving and dive tables: basic knowledge
  • Scuba diving and dive tables: dive planning


As already mentioned, our dive consists of two diving trips with two dives each (Two-tank boat dives). You can start with us either in the morning, at 8:30, or in the afternoon, at 13:30. Please contact us AT LEAST one day before, so that we are able to organize the groups and, mainly, you still get a place on one of our dive boats.

At your arrival at the base you will be welcomed from one of our local and international Dive masters and instructors. We provide you with equipment if desired, help you to prepare and organize your group. Finally you will have a comprehensive but compact BRIEFING together with your group. We will tell something about the dive site, explain important local and special dive site - related methods and techniques, repeat the signs for underwater communication and answer any questions you might still want to clarify.

Finally we go, we cast off! Together we bring the equipment to the boats, of course our staff helps you if you are not capable of carrying it yourself. When everybody is on the boat we get to one of our many dive sites, of which most can be reached within 20 minutes.

A two-tank boat-dive consists of two dives. If there is a significant difference in depth between the two approached dive sites, the deeper one will be dived first (we dive with PADI and therefore avoid reverse profiling). Depending on the zero time a dive is at maximum of 45 minutes.

The surface interval (~ 30 min) is usually already covered by the drive to the next dive site, but we will give you enough time to recover you from your dive, and prepare your equipment for the next. Here too, we are happy to assist you.

Between the dives we will NOT go back to the dive center if possible.

Fun Dives with Unawatuna Diving Centre

After your return to the diving school we invite you to talk about your underwater experience with tea and biscuits. Our guides help you to complete your logbook and identify organisms that you have seen during your dives.

In the meantime, you can hang up your wetsuit, so that it will be dry and ready for your next dive.
