This is a fantastic place to dive, and these are great guys to dive with. I got my PADI AOW from here. First off, the communication was fantastic - Wisni replied to all my emails and Whatsapps pretty quickly and was friendly, and gave me a deal for AOW + 1 extra dive, which was nice. The dive shop itself... More

The dive gear was in good order, safety briefing was clear. Few quite interesting dive sites not too far from the beach, we did 2 dives per day for 2 days. We got a 10% discount... More

Had the pleasure of doing our PADI Advanced Open Water course with our very lovely instructor Wisni here. Was very easy to arrange in advance as they promptly responded to our emails. The diving itself was great! As it was so early in the season, visibility wasn't endless but good enough to see plenty of fish and coral. Worked alongside... More

Contacted wisni almost two months before I came to unawatuna to book my dive. Wisni was fast in reply and gave good recommendations. The dive experience was not as good but due to the weather conditions. Charges were very reasonable, and wisni is very accommodating. Thank you!

My friends and I decided to go on a dive at spur of the moment because they offered us an affordable deal and it was a nice day. It was my first dive and I was mildly terrified. My instructor held my hand the whole time and would make sure I was okay. They also make sure to practice all... More

In 2012 my kids and me did the advanced open water diver at Submarine in Unawatuna. Unawatuna is always a nice place to come back. And Submarine Diving School is an additional reason. I was now the 5th time there and enjoyed it again very much. Of course in off season the visibility is not this good, but Wisni and... More

My friends and I are traveling in off season which we are aware about. We saw the sea being rough but since the sun was shining bright, we thought the visibility would hot be poor. We doubled checked about the visibility with the dive school 3 times before confirming our dive and they recommend it. We even suggested that we... More
