Situated between the Second Reef and the Third Reef, this is one of the relatively deeper sites in Negombo and one of its best dive sites. The Fish action sometimes is overwhelming!

Deranagala is a long elongated dive site. Almost a narrow strip of rock situated on sand. Visibility at most times is an average 15 meters and is sometimes even hindered because of the busy fish life.

Reef fish scamper animatedly among the rocks and large shoals of Rabbitfish and Surgeons circle the rocky reef; in which one can find hiding Moray Eels, Sting Rays, Small Groupers, Cardinalfish, Nudibranchs, Lionfish, Pufferfish and Boxfish.
