Wet n Dry Adventures

Dive and Snorkel Tours
Operates All Year Round
Christmas Island

Dive and snorkel with us in the calm waters of the Indian Ocean. Christmas Island Wet n Dry Adventures is a small family business operating since 1994. We are big on service and safety, but not at the expense of fun!

Exploring the waters surrounding Christmas Island is an experience not to be missed. A myriad of tropical fish swim by in only metres of water, while a short distance away, divers can cruise the drop-off, which plunges dramatically into the abyss. Christmas Island has a fringing reef so all sites hug the coast. Ocean conditions are calm most of the year, excepting short periods during wet season and travelling times are generally under 30 minutes.

Whether you like to search for the secretive little critters or prefer to keep your eye on the blue for the bigger beasts, Christmas Island hosts a vast array of tropical fish species, nudibranchs, pelagics, turtles and sharks. With special guest stars, whalesharks and mantas, dropping by between November to April to get in on the plankton action.

What To Expect

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.
