For centuries Sri Lanka featured prominently in the maritime shipping routes where the spice and tea were run from Asia. During the Second World War, Sri Lanka was a strategic location in the transportation through the Suez Canal and the Strait of Malacca. During the centuries since the colonial era, the coastline of Sri Lanka has claimed numerous vessels. The historical records have revealed of possible existence over 200 shipwrecks around the coast of Sri Lanka over the 500 years of colonial era of the maritime powers of Portuguese, Dutch and the British. Of the ships that were discovered, many of the wrecks have been disintegrated owing to the unceasing actions of the ocean. Marine life is in great abundance in and around the sites.
Baticalo is a great hotspot for wreck divers. It is sounding with the echoes of World War II; this is the ultimate wreck dive in Sri Lanka, and undoubtedly one of the best wreck dives in the world.
The ideal post Hermes dive.
WWII wreck of The HMS Hermes features prominently. The 167 meter long, 12900 ton aircraft carrier was sunken together with a crew of 307 men by the Japanese in an air raid on 9 April 1942. The wreck is designated a “military maritime grave” and as such the access to the inside of the wreck, removal of artefacts and photographing human remains aren’t allowed.
