  • We decided to snorkel on Piegeon Island with "The International Diving School" after taking our hotel $130 instead of like the diving school 80$. The boys picked us up and were very friendly. They have had a very cordial approach to the children and the children have immediately got along with them. It all worked out very well and the fact that few tourists in Sri Lnaka are due to 1.5 months ago behind Piegeon Island was not overcrowded with 5-6 boats. We were able to spot turtles, reef sharks and many other coloured fish. The coral world was severely damaged in the tsunami (the beach is the purest coral cemetery), has since recovered a little. The fact of the otherwise many tourists at the spot is certainly difficult to combine with a good nature conservation. On the second day I did a taster dive which was done very well. All in all, the diving school is well recommended, even as you are aware of the protection of nature. Thank the team for the great experiences.

  • Good place for renting gear and trustworthy staff. The gear is not the newest, which is totally fine, but it is clean and well maintained. I am super happy on coming back and renting from them again.
  • Such a great dive school. I went for my open water certification and finished in 4 days. The instructors were great, and all very nice and accommodating. They try to keep the class sizes small so you get more individual attention and they take care to make sure you are actually good at the skills before moving on. Their English is also very good so you have solid communication throughout. While waiting around they always offer free tea and coffee. They take credit cards which is very convenient. I was lucky because my group’s first 2 open water dives were to two separate shipwrecks, and on the third dive we were lucky enough to see a whale shark! Overall I’d highly recommend this dive school to anyone. Their prices are also very fair and you should definitely come if you’re thinking about doing so!
