Dive with us - Extra Divers Worldwide

Australia / Extra Divers Christmas Island

Extra Divers Dive Center is located on the edge of Flying Fish Cove, on the northeastern coast of Christmas Island, and is right on the oceanfront.
Diving on Christmas Island is a unique experience. Many of the dive sites around the island are huge, hundreds of meters deep abysses, which are covered with beautiful gorgonian and have many overhangs to offer. Other dive sites in turn are gently sloping slopes covered with hard coral fields that provide excellent protection for many small reef fish species. Some of these fish can only be found on Christmas Island!
In the blue waters, there is always a chance at tuna, barracudas, giant mackerel and, of course, tons of sharks. Every now and then a hammerhead shark that pops up from the depths, swordfish or even a passing tiger shark ... no rarities in the waters around the island!
During the rainy season, when the phenomenal migration and spawning of red crabs takes place ashore, the notorious whale sharks also emerge along the coastal waters.
Worth mentioning are certainly the incredible visibility, which are available throughout the year.

Diving/Dive spots

So far, Christmas Island has been known for its spectacular migration of up to 120 million crabs during the rainy season, but there is also a great deal to discover underwater!
The Christmas Island surrounding fringing reef is often located only a few meters from the beach and falls in fantastically overgrown walls to great depths. The reefs are in a prime condition, the fish stock natural, as virtually no commercial fishing is operated. From critters to nudibranchs, from pelagic mantas to turtles and all species of sharks, the waters around Christmas Island are a must-have for any diver, offering unforgettable dives of superlatives.
There are good prospects for whale shark encounters between November and May. Not only the steep walls and intact coral landscapes dominate the picture of the dives, encounters with big fish are very likely due to the exposed position of the island and the depth of the environment.
In the morning there will be a "2-tank" boat trip, in the afternoon single dives are possible. Our convenient aluminum speedboast are equipped with 2 outboards each with 250hp and meet the high Australian safety regulations.

All divers on Christmas Island need a medical certificate (or a be able to complete a self certification site) and provide proof of valid diving insurance.
