Fifteen of us set out from the Christmas Island Jetty for 2.5 hour snorkelling afternoon. We were firstly taken to a coral site, which was interesting but only very small fish. We then motored part way back to where there was a known school of giant Trevally. Snorkelling with these up to 1M fish, whilst they were being fed, was a real WOW! The trip was excelent value ($60) and the two girls running our trip were very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

Thanks for your kind review. The waters around Christmas Island can be very deep, the smaller fish are generally shallow, with the chance of something larger in the blue, deeper water- something for everyone. We love the GT, and a real highlight for all. The price is kept affordable for all, being a large boat we can take more people, as we want everyone to see the island from the ocean! We hope to welcome you back one day!

We had an excellent two hour snorkeling trip with two young ladies which was informative, fun and wonderful. Being of the 'older generation' I felt safe at all times and would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see the coral and fish around Christmas Island.. CONGRATULATIONS on a wonderful trip...

Thanks for your kind review. We look after all type of visitors, from young to the “older generation” as you put it. Our staff always assist where needed, and know when someone doesn’t want any assistance, giving them freedom to enjoy their trip. Many of our guests have told us it’s one of the highlights of their visit to the island! We hope to welcome you back.

Lovely dives but no consideration for flying in late. I found one of the staff very abrupt.The current management want you to dive only at 7.30am back at 11.30am. Tap water and a biscuit is the only food on boat. Nitrox is available .

Thankyou for your review. We have already responded to your comments, directly on another forum and directly to you, as we always seek to improve our offering. We agree - great diving We disagree about no consideration for late flights - we stayed open, offered a quick island briefing and paperwork, the rest of your group came, got everything sorted out, and even had time to sign up to a Nitrox course - paperwork was signed in front of you, while you enjoyed another drink at the pub. Abrupt staff - our staff are highly trained in customer service, however, should comments be of an unacceptable nature, they will continue to assist, but sadly as a result, may seem abrupt. We will not let our staff be treated “unfairly”. Many of our customers comment how helpful everyone is. Our schedule is very flexible - offering early morning dives, afternoon dives and night dives, subject to minimum numbers. To assist with flexibility we offer groups - air tanks .. so you can choose when to dive. Our package dives, ensure that everyone gets back in time for lunch, a rest and time to explore the island in the afternoon. We are often commended for getting the schedule right. Food -unfortunately the current Covid safety plan we have restricts us from what can be provided on board, as physical distancing is not possible at various times on the boat. This ensures everyone is as safe as possible during these unprecedented times. We can’t wait to be able to return to what we offered before! We enjoyed your groups company, and many have already contacted us about returning.

We (a group of 4 experienced divers), thoroughly enjoyed our week+ dive with Extra Divers. Dave, Tegan and Jo were all very efficient and professional and they manage a good balance between laid back Aussie and safely/health considerations. The boat is super! For starters it has a loo, and lots of space (even with divers and snorkelers) and two ladders at the stern. With about 2/3 of the deck covered, shade or sun can always be chosen. We were very pleased not to have to dive on one very rough day, and instead were able to add the lost dives at the end of our stay. Not always possible but the Extra Divers flexible approach was appreciated.

Thanks so much for your review. We loved having you on board - and look forward to welcoming you back again. The weather was very unusual that day, but we made a quick decision, and we hope you enjoyed the land as much as the sea!
