When Is Sri Lanka Diving Season?
From mid November onwards the diving on the east coast is influenced by the north east monsoon. The sea becomes rough, it can start the heavy rain and the visibility will get bad.
Due to these conditions our TRINCOMALEE DIVING CENTRE will be closed from 10.October till 15.April. Usually the north east monsoon blows continuously from the north east and carries more humid air from the Indian Ocean. Sometimes there are strong winds and rain but on average never longer than an hour or two. Daily sunshine is even during the monsoon period in average 8 hours a day. Day temperatures are around 32 to 38 Degrees Celsius and night temperatures 26 to 30 Degrees Celsius. Water temperature is the whole year between 26 to 30 Celsius.
Mid of October till mid of April we operate our UNAWATUNA DIVING CENTRE on the south coast of Sri Lanka. Here the south west monsoon ends at around the mid of October beginning of March and the dive season here starts with a calmer sea and good underwater vision.
