Forthcoming Events

Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka, February 2018

Flexibility is the keyword for this club diving trip as some members know that they will be off work from Friday 23 February to Saturday 3 March, and others just the weekend of Friday 23, Saturday 24, Sunday 25 (National Day), and Sunday 26 (Liberation Day) February. Moreover, as usual, the official announcement of the government holidays to celebrate these events is not expected far ahead of the holidays themselves.

Our destination: Poseidon Diving Station, Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka, with whom we had more than one great trip with good diving in the past. See www.divingsrilanka.com/poseidon-diving-centres/hikkaduwa-diving-station/ for more information. The air and water temperatures are expected to be 28 degrees Celsius.

Costs: A return flight from Kuwait to Colombo with SriLankan Airlines can be obtained for as little as KD 73. This price includes airport taxes and a baggage allowance of 40 kg. A tourist entry visa costs US $ 35. See latest information from Poseidon at

The diving has something for everyone, wrecks, reef and rock formations. For the non-divers there's excellent snorkelling and even a resident turtle in the house reef.

Hikkaduwa is also a famous surf spot, with beautiful sandy beaches. whilst the town has fascinating giftshops and a variety of restaurants, and bars.
