Snorkeling and Diving in Passikudah

Kayankerni is considered the best spot for diving and snorkelling in Pasikuda, for its shallow waters and the biodiversity rich coral reef teeming with colourful fish such as yellow striped goatfish, blue lined snappers, bigeye snappers, clownfish, coral cods, sweetlips, trevally, napoleon wrasses and stingrays are among the long list of marine life made this fascinating coral their home.

For the more daring souls, there are deeper rocky reefs and wrecks, most famous one being the Sergeant, a British Navy ship that was sunk during the infamous Japanese raid in World War II in 1942. There are other shallower wrecks perfect for beginner divers such as the Lady McCullum and the Boiler Wrecks which are from 5-17m in depth.

In addition to snorkelling and diving, you can try your hand at kite-flying, wind surfing, water-skiing and kite boarding.
