Has Anyone Snorkeled in Sri Lanka?

If anyone has snorkeled in Sri Lanka, especially on the west coast, I'd love some feedback. I've snorkeled in Raja Ampat, Maldives and Red Sea, and am wondering how Sri Lanka compares. Thank you.

Sri Lanka Snorkeling

Sri Lanka's snorkeling is poor in my opinion. It is not a snorkeling destination. Because I'm a snorkeling fanatic, I did try it once near Bentota (west coast) and was profoundly disappointed. This was a 2.5 week trip in late March 2018 seeing many sights in this beautiful country. The water clarity was abysmal and we only saw "a few" fish.

I have also snorkeled Maldives and Raja Ampat and there is simply no comparison. IMHO Raja Ampat is one of the best snorkeling destinations in the world and am returning in 2020.

Sri Lanka is worth a visit but not for snorkeling. Sorry if this reply may be too late for you but I just saw your post today.
