Freediving on Christmas Island

Keep in touch with us about freediving – we’re building a special package.

Details to come!

Ever been snorkelling and wanted to dive down and take a closer look, or to extend your freediving or spearfishing skills? 

What Makes Christmas Island one of the Best Freediving locations on the Planet?

  • Perfect water temperature, 26-30 degrees all year round
  • Very little or no current in the dive location, Flying Fish Cove. It is very protected from currents.
  • Good surface conditions. No waves and very little swell. The cove is surrounded by high cliffs that protect it from the winds and swell that prevail from the south east most of the year.
  • Good visibility, normally 20+ metres and 15 on a bad day …
  • Accessible dive location. Our training location is an 80m swim from the jetty for 40m depth. We also have a deeper mooring which is a 150m swim out where it’s possible to dive to 60+ metres.
  • Spectacular marine life. On our short swim to our dive location we swim over amazing coral gardens, colourful fish and moray eels just to name a few.
  • Another thing that sets it apart from other locations is that there are so many other cool places and things to see and do when you’re not in the water. 63% of Christmas island is National Park and is home to endemic species of sea birds, land crabs and marine life, aptly the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean. You can explore the secluded beaches, tropical jungle, caves and waterfalls. All of this is completely free to explore with no fees to enter the national park.
