About us

Samitha Fernando the founder of KDC moved to Kalpitiya with his father and since then, for the past 18 years he has been  diving and exploring the underwater world in the region. He has over 10,000 dives under his belt and back in 2002 he  established a small recreational diving operation under the name “Kalpitiya Diving Centre”, which was the first to take  recreational divers below the surface, even before tourism took root in Kalpitiya. Samitha is a PADI certified Asstant Open  Water Scuba Instructor. He started SCUBA diving in Trincomalee at the early age of 14, under the guidance of his father the  legendary Shantha Fernando, who was known as a mentor and a pioneer of diving in Sri lanka. Shantha introduced Scuba  Diving to Kalpitiya back in 1975 and in 1999 he was the first to dive the British Seargent which sank in Vakarei in 1823. The  best dive sites we have in our collection, including a few secret ones were discovered by him many decades ago. Samitha  is also a certified life saver in the “Sri Lanka Life savers association” and a “ASCA” Swimming instructor.
