Several years ago Poseidon also established a dive centre in the north east of the island, Trincomalee, to dive great sites like Pigeon Island and the Hindu Temple. This allows 12 months a year diving. The centre in Hikkaduwa is open from November through to April. Trincomalee is April through to November.
Poseidon Diving continues to be an innovative force in the Sri Lankan dive industry, maintaining high standards and a strong commitment to quality diver education.
Poseidon Diving station is the longest established PADI Dive Center in Sri Lanka. Poseidon started in 1972 with the father of the present owner and his Swedish friend Eric. They founded many dive sites and wrecks and have a great little museum on site showing the early history of diving around Sri Lanka. They were also instrumental in protecting the reef that guards the beach of Hikkaduwa. That is why we are still have turtles and bumphead parrotfish swimming around us during our confined water sessions.
