Dive Kalmunai

Sorry for the inconvenience. This page is under development. please click here to visit the old website page.

World class World War II ship wrecks.

That's the only reason a diver would want to be in Kalmuani.

Soon after the Japanese airforce sank the H.M.S Hermes and the vampire in Batticaloa they directed wrath further south to the British Oil Tanker
SS Athelstane and the Flower Class Corvette HMS Hollyhock.

Today, the ships we believe to be the SS Athelstane and the HMS Hollyhock lie at 42m depth off the shores of South Kalmunai.

There are no dive centers as yet in Kalmunai and diving there is still expedition style which require special organizing.

But it is not only the World War II ships that define the details of Kalmunai diving. It is resplendent with wrecks and reefs. This is the report from our initial expedition to Kalmunai.

Await more updates soon! (See below for the list of ships & reefs)
