SNORKELLING AND DIVING
Hikkaduwa has the largest selection of diving schools in Sri Lanka. The diving season is from November to April. There’s a good range of dives close by, including reef and wreck dives down to 25m at the labyrinthine Hikkaduwa Gala complex, a well-known spot with swim-through caves, and the rocky-bottomed area of Kiralagala (22–36m deep).
There are also some sixteen wrecks in the vicinity, including a much-dived old steam-driven oil tanker from the 1860s known as the Conch; the Earl of Shaftesbury sailing ship, wrecked in 1848; and the Rangoon, which sank near Galle in 1863.
