Submarine Diving School

Submarine Diving School, the longest established PADI diving center in Unawatuna, is nestled under the palm trees in the western end of the serene bay. This is the best spot if you want to learn diving with professionals. They have all the right equipment for water activities and prices are cheaper than other shops and these guys don't compromise on safety. Totally value for money!!

I went diving one day with the Submarine team, and i didn´t expect to get such a good support ! Thanks for all that smiles. it was my first time diving, and every step to get in the water felt sooo natural with the smile of the team. The instructors are very well prepared, professional and they love what they do. Going under water may be frightening for some, or just exciting, and submarine team makes the best for every body, respecting timing and just letting you get into the amazing world underwater. I cann´t feel more safe that holding their hands there. This experience make me seriously think about doing the basis courses for diving. GREAT EXPERIENCE

I was diving with guys in December 2018 and first of all I want to apologize it took me so long to write this review. This is only because I wanted this review to be really good =) First of all, extremely helpful, extremely friendly staff. It was so friendly, that my usual nervousness has faded away and all I did was enjoy the dives and absorb new information. Cause I decide to take AOWD during my stay and I’m 100% positive it was right decision. The surrounding areas have everything you might need: wrecks for deep diving and wreck diving, good spots for underwater navigation training, safe night dive spots and once again - super helpful staff and instructors. I also appreciate SUBMARINE’s fair and reasonable price. Special thanks to Wisni for his support, patience, careful explanations and always friendly smile =) Also my biggest thanks to Shirley and whole team!!

I got my Open Water Diver Certification here a few days ago. Everything was perfect. Wisni is a great, skilled and professional Instructor, he made me feel safe and at ease all over the course. I learned step by step in the nice environment of this diving center, in the warm waters of the ocean, surrounded by amazing and colorful fishes, with Wisni beside me. I discovered a new world and it is because of him. I absolutely recommend!

I made 14 dives and my 11 years old son completed junior OW. WISHNI was his instructor. everything was well organised. my son liked the course a lot. later he made 4 dives as a qualified diver and there was a dive guide with him all the times. IT was safe althougj the ocean was rough and visibility very low. strong currents for the last two days. we where always one of the last boats on dive sites- if you look for an early dive check some other dive centres on other side of the beach - I saw some boats leaving around 7.30. submarine normally leaves around 9.30. the dive sites are ok. especially Galle wrecks and site no. 12. dives normally last 40-45 min. I was diving with my own gear and everything was well arranged for my son. otherwise I would just comment that divemasters would also need some wetsuit renewal - they look very low in torn wetsuits and do not give good impression. most of the times they dive only in teeshirt and bermudas and get cold soon. divemasters are qualified, know the locations and underwater grounds well. there is always a hand that brings gear from and to the boat. generally I give 9* from 10 to this place to leave some space for improvement!! thank you, Submarine!

Good comm in arranging before arrival. Quick on water after arrival, nice instructor. Fins in particular are worn out ( broken) for me and my dive mate. Visibility not perfect , abt 10-12 m, so I gave up with the night dive, although they said it is feasible. No, water, no snacks between dive, there is a return to shore between dives, which might be of help for those with sea sick, as the dives are from rather small boats. On the way back daulphins accompanied us and the captain was kind enough to slow down and let us enjoy the company.
