About Us

After many years exploring and documenting the wrecks and reefs off Colombo we founded Island Scuba in 2012 with the aim of sharing one of Sri Lanka’s best kept underwater secrets with divers from around the word. As divers ourselves, we want you to experience the same sense of adventure and excitement that drives us every day as we guide you through our favorite wrecks and reefs. Our team brings together experience in marine biology, environmental science, underwater photography, and tourism, spiced with a passion for the ocean and Sri Lanka.

We are dedicated to ensuring a safe and enjoyable dive experience and are proud to have been awarded a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for 2014. We have also traveled all over Sri Lanka from hiking in the Knuckles, tracking leopards in Wilpattu to finding the best crab curry in Jaffna. If you want to explore the best diving and wildlife adventures in Sri Lanka, get in touch with us and we can help you with your travel plans.
