Beginning in November 2016, the Island Scuba Day Boat Fleet will start to operate in Sri Lanka off he coast of Colombo offering 12 local shipwrecks ranging from only several years old to early last century. Many of the wrecks also serve as some of Sri Lankas best artificial reefs , both being covered in spectacular colored corals and supporting a wide range of fish life.
The daytrip boats that we offer in Colombo and Trincomalee vary in size, generally ranging between 33 – 40 metres. Typically these are all hard hull boats that cruise at 10 knots and carry between 20‐30 scuba divers, taking into consideration comfort levels and license numbers. They have a saloon, toilets and shower, sunbathing area, shaded area, dive deck with ladders and rinse tanks, and kitchen. There are normally a minimum of 5 boat crew and the necessary divemasters to service all divers each day on the boat. All the boats carry a 40 litre emergency oxygen tank, MFA kit, evacuation procedures, ship‐to‐shore radio and mobile phone contact, and life jackets.
