Scuba Diving & Snorkelling
Cocos offers some of the worlds best diving with stunning underwater visibility and an array of sea life that is in one word – abundant. Cocos attracts divers from all over the world. It has over 100 different coral species, manta-rays, dolphins, barracudas, reef sharks, sailfish and you might be lucky enough to see the resident Dugong!
Dive sites are located both inside and outside the lagoon.
We thoroughly recommend using a local dive operator to get expert knowledge on the best spots to maximise your time on the island. Local operators offer tours to suit many levels of diving experience.
If you don’t want to go scuba diving theres still so much to see snorkelling throughout the lagoon. Great fun for all ages, the amazing array of underwater life is simply jaw dropping.
You must “zip the rip” at Direction Island (DI as the locals call it). This is a ‘must do’ snorkelling experience that you will remember for a lifetime.
Beachcombers provides snorkelling equipment for up to 4 people. If you require extra, you can hire equipment from the Visitor Centre on the island.
