    Recommendations for diving holiday in the Indian ocean/Arabian Sea

    Hi all

    I am due to go to a wedding in Sri Lanka in January of next year and fully intend to turn it into a 1-2 week diving trip. I spent a month in Sri Lanka a few years ago and did some diving on the east coast near Trincomnalee. I wasn't too impressed if I am honest, visibility was poor and reefs were varying in condition. I hear the South West Coast is better but am hesitant considering our previous experience. Also seeing as I have already spent some time in Sri Lanka I am open to trying other destinations that could be worked into a stop over on the way home to the UK. The obvious places seem to be the Seychells and Maldives but on first look I see they can be extremely pricey.

    Any suggestions or opinions on the above would be much appreciated!

    Best wishes

    Ben
