Information

Diving around Christmas Island is a unique experience. Along the coastline, you won’t find many white, sandy beaches, but instead steep, jagged limestone cliffs with dense jungles growing above. It’s these cliffs that extend downwards into the depths of the oceans making for fantastic wall dives.

Extra Divers Christmas Island provides boat dives year-round (weather-dependent) both in the morning and afternoon. For those that love night diving, you also have the chance to go out on occasion for night dives in and around the Cove. Scuba divers depart for a two-tank dive aboard the 10.5-meter boat for up to 16 people incl. crew and guides. The dive boat is equipped with a toilet and all necessary safety standards. Snacks and drinking water are available on board.

The generously designed Extra Divers centre is  a SSI and PADI  facility and is managed professionally by an experienced team.

Diving on Christmas Island is still in its infancy, so there are many places left to jump in and explore. Extra Divers believes that  there are still many dive sites to explore.

Many of the dive locations around Christmas Island are huge drop-offs, measuring hundreds of meters deep, that are speckled with gorgeous sea fans and soft corals, and hide many overhangs. Other locations around the island are gentle slopes dotted with coral bommies and massive table corals, offering perfect shelter for several small species of reef fish. Some of these reef fish are endemic to Christmas Island, such as the 11 different hybrid fish that have come about by interbreeding between similar fish who couldn’t find suitable partners.

In the blue waters, there is always a chance to see the larger pelagic life, such as tuna, barracudas, giant trevallies and sharks. During the wet season, when the phenomenal red crab migration and spawning take place on land, the renowned whale sharks also appear along the coastal waters. On rare occasions, divers have also spotted manta rays and mola molas. Many of the dive sites, like The Cemetery, Chicken Farm, North West Point, and The Morgue, attract a couple of white-tip and grey reef sharks that are not shy around divers.

Additionally, Christmas Island’s underwater landscape also provides astonishing overhangs, caverns and sea caves. Some dive sites, such as Thunder Cliff and Thunder Dome, are a great mix of mysterious dark caverns and gorgeous outer reefs, which makes for an exciting combination in one dive. Divers can even surface inside the dome to view stalactites hanging from the ceilings.
