Trincomalee season is just around the corner… So I am posting some memories from last year Trinco season..
One of the highlights of Trincomalee is that you can snorkel with black tip sharks. Most of the time when people talk about sharks it brings fear, and some would say, ” I don’t want to get in the water if there are sharks..”
But the reality is, Its pretty amazing to be able to snorkel with them.. They are very harmless to us and really not bothered. They just swim around as if we are not in the water.
Its really amazing to have these 2 to 3 meter long sharks swim around you and some times get so close as even 2 feet away from you. The video quality is not great.. but enjoy.
The S.S. Conch is a British Ship which sank in 1903. Its one of the nice dive sites found in Hikkaduwa. being over 100 years old the wreck is fairly broken and scattered but still has some parts intact standing several meters off the sea floor.
Most of the wreck is at around 10 to 14 meters of depth while the bow of the ship is at about 21 meters. This makes the dive a very interesting and easy dive having both a shallow and deep section.
Lots of butterfly fish, Angel fish , Sweet lips, and many Nudes can be seen, And sometimes the resident Maori Wrasse.
The site is about 20 mins comfortable boat ride from our dive center “Poseidon Diving Station”
