With over 64 dive sites of stunning diversity, Christmas Island has something to suit everyone! Whether it’s dramatic walls with large, healthy fans; cave dives with ‘exit and explore’ options or a scattered wreck from WWII, the visibility is spectacular. With a fringing reef, most sites are close to the coast and can be reached within 30 minutes. Whatever your fancy, diving here is always relaxing. We favour drift diving, so you can take your time and go where the current takes you, while our team waits for you at the end point.
The great thing about diving on CI is that we have access all year round. However, conditions do vary between wet and dry seasons:
Wet (November – April): ocean conditions occasionally rough on the Northern side of the island, but we have an alternative launch site on the East side and access to ordinarily choppy sites improves. Can be rainy but visibility remains in the 20m. This is also the time the whalesharks and mantas visit these waters. Average water temperature 29°C.
Dry (May – October): ocean conditions calm in North and West side of the Island. Good visibility. Same amazing diversity with less divers. Average water temperature 27°C.
