Pigeon Island is a Marine National Park off the coast of Nilaveli, just north of Trincomalee. It has one of the best remaining live coral reefs in the country and is an ideal location for scuba diving and snorkelling. You will be taken out for a few hours to explore this beautiful area and try to spot some local marine life! We recommend setting off early morning to beat the crowds when the sun is less harsh, the waters are calmer, and better visibility. The spectacular Blacktip Reef Shark and several kinds of turtles including the Hawksbill Turtle and Green Turtle often visit this island. You can also spot lots of tropical fish, eels, and rays, amongst the vibrant coral.  If you bring an underwater camera, you will be able to take some great photos, too.
