Overview

The wide Bentota River on the one side and the ocean on the other side offer an incredible wide variety of watersport facilities, including water skiing, wind surfing, surfing, jet skiing, wake boarding, body boarding, banana rides, tube rides, deep sea fishing, river fishing, snorkeling, diving and river cruises. When the river reaches the sea side, it bends sharply northbound, leaving a narrow stretch of land between the sea and the river, so that at this spot you may enjoy both the pleasures of the sea and the lagoon-like river. The sea is too rough and dangerous to bath during the monsoon (rainy) period, but the river and various swimming pools of the resort hotels offer a good alternative. There are many water sports facilities in Bentota, Beruwala and Aluthgama, it is one big watersport and beach paradise, without being overcrowded. You can either hire equipment or have it in combination with a training, such as diving, surfing and water skiing.

To give you a brief indication of prices for the various water sports facilities, those of a renowned watersports center has been taken to show you down below. Take into mind that this list is an indication and based on 2014. Prices may vary per facility, but always watch if the equipment is safe and in a good condition and if the instructors are licensed. During the monsoon period prices might be lower, anyway you could try to bargain.
