After completing the PADI Open Water Diver courses we decided to go kayaking. Starting from Ypsylon Dive Center, Sampath, Shaggy, Ruwan & my self launched the 2 kayaks. We left at 3.00 pm & reached Poseidon Diving School which is approximately 5 Km’s south within about 1 hour & 30 mins. We stopped for a cup of tea at Poseidon, then we headed back to Ypsylon which took a similar amount of time. The sea here is ideal for this.. very calm with almost no waves.. Kayaking trip was very easy, relaxed & loads of fun.

Look who started Scuba Diving!! Ann Kristine was very sure that she couldnt get her head underwater until she tried it last Saturday at S. Thomas College Scuba Diving Unit in Mount Lavinia.
Once she put on her dive equipment, she was a natural & really comfortable in the water and picked up the dive skills so fast.
Ann Kristine & Anoushka take their first breath under water.
Kids learn Scuba diving as fast & easily as the adults do, sometimes maybe even faster. From the age of 8 years they can start with the PADI Bubble maker course where they learn the basic skills of scuba diving in a shallow swim pool while having loads of fun in a very safe setting.
