I spontaneously decided to make my diving certificate. Very good fast contact to Rohan and Emma. Only 2 days to finish my padi owd (due to low season / e-leraning and good the instructor Rohan). Top equipment. Rohan is a super friendly and good instructor. Due to low season I was the only student at this time. Final dive was awesome! Rohan explains everything very well and very calmly. Great experience Thank you! The Diving school moved to a better building right next pigeon Island in June 2018. I did my padi owd in may/2018. Nothing to complain about.

Thank TravelDeu

We did a PADI Open water dive course with Rohan and Emma and from our very first email the experience was amazing.

We choose to go with Taprobane as their reviews were good and they responded personally to each review on TripAdvisor. Emma kept in touch with us whilst we were travelling in Sri Lanka and undecided as to whether to take the course or not as well as informing us of their recent change of location.

Emma helped us with every question we had from booking to PADI online learning queries, making sure we were looked after and happy.

Rohan was our dive instructor and he was fantastic. He was sensitive to our needs and was so very patient. My partner was very nervous in the water and Rohan gave her the reassurance and help that she needed. We are so grateful that we had such a great instructor.

The gear and facilities were tip top and the our skippers Luckmal and Leslie are an asset to the team. We really appreciated all the care and especially the ice cream stops!

Our dive spots were perfect. Our last day the visibility was less than the previous days, but we got to see such amazing underwater life up close and personal.

You can't go wrong in choosing Taprobane for your diving experience.

We really hope that we get to revisit and dive again with Rohan and Emma.

This shop is a hidden gem, unbeliveable equipment, great divemasters and good dives. Relatively short rides to the dives.
