Christmas Island


One of the best ways to view the rare and elusive Christmas Island Hawk Owl is to go with a local who knows where the little blighters like to hang out. To increase our chances of a sighting we do use a recorded call to bring them in. All equipment is supplied. Please note: rain during the day and into the evening can reduce chances of sightings and the tour may have to be cancelled/rescheduled at short notice.

Time: Dependent on season and location of owls

Schedule: Dependent on season and location of owls

Places: Dependent on season and location of owls. Booking prior to arrival on island is essential.

Cost: AUD$35 per adult and includes extra night if required

Don’t have much time on Christmas Island and want to make sure you get all the ticks you need – then book this 2 day tour! Day 1 we visit all the mainstay hangouts to identify as many of the endemic and regular visitors as we can. That evening we endeavour to get the Christmas Island Hawk-owl. Day 2 we look for the more elusive birds such as the Christmas Island Goshawk and any rare or visiting vagrants. Guests do need to indicate which species they are after and how much “trolling” they are prepared to do to look for any unusual birds if they are looking to build their Australian list. Meals are not included in the tour, but lunch can be provided with pre-arrangement for an extra fee. Booking prior to arrival on island is essential.

Time: 2 days (10 hours flexible)

Schedule: Dependent on your requirements (early morning starts – late afternoon)

To avoid disappointment, Indian Ocean Experiences highly recommends you pre-book your tours to Australia’s Indian Ocean Islands, as tours have limited seats and departures.  Operators may be fully booked, or off island during your chosen travel dates and you may miss out on a wonderful experience !
