The Cocos Keeling Islands tick all the scuba diving boxes - water temperature between 26C and 29C, average visibility of 25 metres, more than 25 uncrowded, regularly dived sites, varied atoll terrain that suits divers of all abilities, and minimal travel time to see a huge diversity of marine life. What are you waiting for? This is adventure diving at its best!

Expect to see species mainly of Indo-West Pacific varieties with some from the West Indian Ocean. There are a possible 1550 species of sea creatures to discover, including the only endemic fish species, the Cocos pygmy angelfish.

Dive among gardens of hydrocorals, soft corals, sea fans, sea anemones, stony corals and black corals. Discover colourful varieties of nudibranchs (colourful sea slugs), shrimps, flatworms and crabs. Come face-to-face with dolphins, manta rays, sharks, moray eels, ’Kat’ the lone dugong, and pelagics. Enjoy varieties of surgeonfishes, parrotfishes, wrasse, damsels, angelfishes and butterflyfishes at play. With endless colour and character plus many a sea creature just dying to pose for your camera, it’s a perfect place for underwater photography.

Dive sites are located both inside and outside the lagoon and range from wrecks to reefs, caves and drop-offs. Explore the Cabbage Patch, Fern Wall, Garden of Eden, Two Caves and the Rose Wall to name just a sample.
