Walls, caves and one fantastic wreck make up the superb diving surrounding Christmas Island. The majority of the island’s dive sites are on the wall around the island. This wall starts as close as 65 feet (20 meters) from the shoreline and drops hundreds of meters to the sea floor. Untouched corals, interesting critters and hundreds of fish species call the wall home.
Divers who look into the blue might spot dolphins, a variety of sharks or whale sharks. There are plenty of caves to explore surrounding the island. The dive site called Thundercliffe Cave gives divers the opportunity to enter the cave underwater, surface and continue exploring by foot.
Your dive log is sure to be full and happy after a few days spent diving near Christmas Island.
