The best time for diving at the east coast is from mid of April to end of October. Sun is shining, sea is calm, visibility is good. From mid November onwards the diving on the east coast is influenced by the north east monsoon. The sea becomes rough and heavy rain influences the dive conditions.
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 30 to 32 Degrees Celsius and night temperatures 26 to 30 Degrees Celsius. Water temperature is the whole year between 26 and 30 Celsius.
