Before the 2004 Tsunami, the main livelihood within Seenigama village was coral mining to make quicklime, which has been a problem plaguing Sri Lankan coastlines for decades. Research after the Tsunami showed that in areas where corals had been destroyed, the Tsunami waves were much more powerful and destructive. This research led to the banning of coral mining, which resulted in many people losing their means of income.
It was in this spirit that our Dive & Training Centre was born, to provide professional training and PADI licensing to coastal youth, to utilize their skills and find employment in the global diving industry!
Whether you are new to Scuba Diving or looking to learn new skills, we offer many courses that will equip you with knowledge, skills and necessary experience to further your dive education!
