Dive with us - Extra Divers Worldwide

Australia / Extra Divers Christmas Island

Extra Divers Dive Center is located on the north-eastern coast of Christmas Island, right on the rugged coastline. Extra Divers Christmas Island offers boat tours all year round (weather permitting). Scuba divers depart for a two-tank dive aboard our 10.5-meter boat at 8:00 am for up to 16 divers. At around noon, the boat is back in Fly Fishing Cove. In the afternoon it is possible to do another boat dive or exploration in the jungle of the island. Early morning and night dives are organized on request. The dive boat is equipped with a toilet and all necessary safety standards. Snacks and drinking water are available on board. All divers on Christmas Island need a medical certificate and the proof of a valid diving insurance. Note: Friday and Saturday no diving is offered.
The generously designed Extra Divers centre is managed professionally and multilingual by our experienced team. Training is multilingual according to SSI and PADI standards, from beginner to instructor.

Diving/Dive spots

Untouched dive sites, caves and grottos, sharks, dolphins, endemic fish, steep drop-offs, rare birds, lonely beeches, dense jungle, waterfalls and blowholes, as well as the famous crabs are waiting for the visitor on this gem in the Indian Ocean!
Christmas Island belongs to Australia, but is located in the Indian Ocean, only about an hour's flight from Jakarta. For nature lovers and divers looking for a place without mass tourism, Christmas Island is the perfect destination. Diverse spots with caves, drop offs, coral gardens and good chances on shark encounters make Christmas Island a top destination for divers. Also our Extra Divers centre is the only dive centre on the island that is open all year round.
The dives around Christmas Island are a unique experience. In addition to coral gardens with huge table corals, there are steep drop-offs – several hundred metres deep. More than 200 coral species live there, as well as endemic fish and the big ones of the seas. Different species of sharks - especially during the summer months – can been seen here. Apart from white tip and grey reef sharks, the curious silky sharks at the Early Morning Dives are a real peculiarity. With a little luck you can also emcounter hammerheads and mantas during the dives. Even macro lovers will get their money's worth on the reefs around Christmas Island: ghost pipefish, harlequin shrimps and dragon moray eels provide great photo opportunities. Another treat of Christmas Islands are the numerous caves and caverns. In the "Thunder Dome Cave" you can even go to the surface inside the cave, walk into the cave and admire the big stalactites.
The visibility of more than 30 meters is excellent almost all year round and on the boat trips you will sometimes encounter dolphins or during the whale shark season and the gigantic plankton eaters. The water temperature ranges between 24 and 28 degrees all year round.
