or your next diving holiday consider Cocos Dive located on the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Australia’s best kept diving holiday destination secret! This little known horseshoe-shaped jewel rises from the depths of the Indian Ocean atop of a huge volcanic seamount some 2750km north-west of Perth and 900km west south-west of Christmas Island, its closest neighbour. The atoll lies approximately 12° south and 96.5° east, locating it in the humid tropical zone.

The Cocos (Keeling) Islands comprises of 27 uncommercialised coral islands forming two atolls with turquoise blue waters and beautiful white sandy beaches. Beneath the surface lie pristine gardens of colourful soft leather corals, cabbage like hard corals and delicate gorgonian fans. Sharks, manta rays, dolphins, tunas, turtles, brightly coloured marine fish and Kat, the lone dugong are regularly seen whilst diving.

If you are searching for an uncrowded, pristine dive destination, then Cocos Dive on the Cocos (Keeling) Islands is just the place for you! 

Christmas Island

We like to ‘go with the flow’ at Wet’n’Dry, so most sites are drift dives, so relax knowing the boat is waiting for you as you surface.

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.
