PADI Open Water Diver I did my PADI Open Water diving licence with Sun Diving Center in Unawatuna, with my instructor Ravindra Kumara. Ravindra and the entire Sund Diving Center team were really great in organising all the necessary dives and supported me in getting my licence in 3 days. It was really fun, and I can fully recommend that place. The owner Shan is very kind and nice, and organised very quickly all the necessary steps on short term notice. Thanks a lot, keep on with your great work and fun.

Sehr Gastfreundlich, sehr zuvorkommend. Die Tauchlehrer sind Über-/Unterwasser zu 100% Vertrauenswürdig. Wir haben beim Tauchzenter Sun Diving unseren Open Water Advanced Schein erfolgreich absolviert. Die Kommunikation in Vorfeld per WA war klasse, den Theorieteil konnten wir daher schon vor unserem Kurs zuhause durchführen! Die 2 Tage für die Praxiselemente des Kurses wurden klasse genutzt. Alle Tauchgänge waren vom Boot aus. Die Crew ist sehr zuvorkommend, es mangelt einem an nichts. Auf kurzfristig eintretendes schlechte Wetter wurde hervorragend reagiert mit der Option, an Land abzuwarten ob es besser wird oder den 3. Tauchgang auf den nächsten Tag zu verschieben. Wir fühlten uns zu jederzeit willkommen und konnten unseren Tauchlehrern Über-/ sowie Unterwasser zu jederzeit 100% vertrauen. Vielen Dank für die tollen 2 Tage mit euch!
