I arrived in Hikka after recommendations to dive in the south of Sri Lanka. But the waves are too big now. Season is Nov-Apr here. Poseidan directed me to their dive shop near Trincomalee in Nilaveli.
I dove two days here, $75 for a two tank dive plus $17 for the pigeon island marine park entrance. I would recommend you dive inside the park as there was much more to see than outside. Plus the island is quite scenic so it is nice to walk around during your surface interval.
Staff is very friendly. Would recommend.
Only tip would be do not stay at the Pigeon Island View Guest house (the dive shop is located in the hotel) they vary prices from 2500 to 5000 rupees depending on how much they think you will pay. They do not follow the prices listed on their website. Internet doesn't work and there is no where close to eat at night. I would recommend Shahira good prices, great staff, hotel restaurant, and other restaurants close, 20 minute walk to Poseidan dive shop down the beach.
