There were a few operators who had parasailing/paragliding in Negombo. The rates varied from Rupees 800 per Half Hour. Now it is available in the Kalpitiya area.

I am very surprise about the answers given to this question. O M F G, even people mention prices, lol, How we talk about Nigambo even it is not exists in Sri Lanka?
Actually this sport not operating in ground level anywhere in Sri Lanka. But first time introduce by Ella Adventure Park few years ago. They have their own para gliding equipments. But they also could not promote it as an industry.
According to my experiences, Sri Lanka has limited opportunities to promote it. The main reason is no much suitable places here and because we have many narrow river valleys but not smiler to glacial valleys in Europe which suitable for para gliding.
Last January I had a client from England who is a professional para glider. He wanted to find suitable sites. We traveled all around Knuckles Range and central highland to start this industry. We gone to many places where people say, o, nice place for para gliding, but those places have no take offs or landing places. At the end we found a very good site which has suitable take off and what he said, best landing field in the world. But we could not do it because start little rain in whole two weeks. If you need photos about our para gliding activity please send me a friend request to firstname.lastname@example.org Facebook account.
If you are a professional para glider, please come to Kandy with equipments I offer a full board completely free tour for one of the first person as a promotion to the site we found!
