Lonely diving spots, caves and grottos, sharks, dolphins, endemic fish, steep walls, rare birds, lonely beech trees, dense jungle, waterfalls and blowholes as well as the famous crabs await the visitor on this gem in the Indian Ocean! Christmas Island is the perfect destination for nature lovers and divers who are looking for a place without mass tourism. Diverse spots with caves, steep walls, coral gardens and good opportunities for shark encounters make Christmas Island a top address for divers. You won’t find any other diving boats here, because there is only one diving center on the island that is open all year round.
The dives around Christmas Island are a unique experience. In addition to flat coral gardens with huge table corals, there are steep drop-offs that drop several hundred meters deep. More than 200 types of coral, endemic fish and the largest of the oceans live here. Different types of sharks are usually not long in coming – especially when diving in the summer months – in addition to whitetip and gray sharks, the curious silk sharks are a real specialty at the Early Morning Dives. With a little luck, hammerhead sharks and manta rays can also be seen during the dives. Macro lovers will also get their money’s worth on the reefs around Christmas Island: ghost pipe fish, harlequin shrimp and dragon moray eels offer great photo opportunities. Another delicacy from Christmas Islands are the numerous caves and caverns.
Visibility of more than 30 meters is excellent almost all year round and it is very likely that you will encounter dolphins on the boat trips or, in the whale season, also the gigantic plankton-eaters. The water temperatures are between 24 and 28 degrees all year round.
What To Expect
Extra Divers Christmas Island offers daily half-day trips, 2 dives/ Snorkel per day, that start at 07:30 in the morning and return back around 12:00 in the afternoon. In busy times, boats fill up quickly and afternoon trips also go out regularly for 2 dives as well (starting at 13:30). We do 2 dives, with each dive being max 30 meters (or to your training depth if shallower) for max 1 hour. In between the dives we make a minimum 1 hour surface interval and move to the next location for the second dive. This schedule is optimal because it allows you time to explore the underwater world and then have the other half to hike/see the island. The boat goes out regularly
You can also go as a passenger to see the island from the sea or even on a snorkel trip
Our boat is nice and big (11 meters long, 4 meters wide) and fully covered with a marine toilet too! We offer snacks and drinking water on board and have all the latest safety equipment required by Australian regulations. It has plenty of space for dive equipment under the seats, and a dry area in the front for day bags. There are ladders on the back made specially for divers and snorkellers to come up with fins, so it’s an easy boat to go diving from.
