Indigo Ocean Travels Scuba Diving

Often referred to as the ‘pearl in the Indian Ocean’, Sri Lanka offers world-class Scuba-Diving and Snorkelling tours. A multitude of tropical fish, magnificently colourful coral reefs and fascinating ship wrecks can be explored at several locations off the south coast of Sri Lanka .

Wind Surfing with Indigo Ocean

Windsurfing is an incredibly dynamic sport. You can learn to cruise slowly like a sailboat, fly along at lightning speeds, race, wave sail, or do aerial tricks. The best time for windsurfing on the west coast is between November and April. It´s sunny and the water and wind conditions are good. After April the monsoon hits and the seas can be very rough. These conditions are more suitable for experienced windsurfers. On the east coast the best winds are during July and August. They tend to be on the strong side, but other than that conditions are excellent.

Indigo Ocean Kite Surfing

We are dealing with nature so wind and wind reports can sometimes be unpredictable, one day absolutely no wind and the other gale force winds! Be patient. Places like Jaffna were recently explored. Winds were good even in low season.

Whale Watching with Indigo Ocean

Commercial whale watching in Sri Lanka was first mooted in the 1980s following documentation of whale sightings in the Trincomalee bay by marine biologists of the research vessel The Tulip. They found out that blue whales and sperm whales were coming into the Trincomalee harbour using a submarine canyon. Whales of Trincomalee had also featured in the award winning film “Whales weep not”, the first underwater filming of Sperm whales in their natural habitat. Though Trincomalee was earlier tipped to be a whale watching hot spot, security restrictions had shelved projects to develop whale watching in the area.

Water Rafting

This beautiful location was used to make the film “Bridge of the river Qwai” by David Lean. Kitulgala is an Eco Adventure with rafting in The Kaleni River including walks in the bird trails of the adjoining rain forest mountains ranging to Sri Pada range and Hortain Plains of the central hills. Residing by the river you will make a deep relaxation only hearing sound of the river.
