Marine Park With visibility at 25-30 metres on average, the crystal-clear lagoons offer a chance to get up close with blooming coral underwater gardens

Over 500 species of vibrant fish, majestic manta rays, fat hawksbill and green turtles, and bottlenose dolphins. As fish from both the Indian and Pacific Ocean meet here, new species like the Cocos Pygmy Angelfish and an extremely rare dwarf fish have developed too – making our far-flung marine environment so unique.


Marine Park Whales and dolphins have been spotted in the waters surrounding the outer reef, which is also home to a much loved local Dugong named Kat.

The Cocos Keeling Islands are one of the only places in Australia where such an amazing array of marine life can be seen just a few metres in from spots around the island shores. 

Local skippers love to take visitors to explore secret snorkelling and scuba diving spots, and to fish for large bone fish, wahoo, giant trevally, permit, milkfish, and more.


It is rare, in this day and age, to come upon a place so delightful in both looks and temperament that, on the very first sighting, one’s jaw does genuinely drop.

If going with the flow is how you roll, you will love the Cocos Keeling Islands. They have a small – very small – country town vibe. Your activities revolve around the exquisite lagoon whether they be snorkelling, diving, fishing, parasailing, or just relaxing under a coconut palm reading a book while inhaling the frangipani infused air

Scuba diving at Cocos Keeling islands is nothing short of spectacular. Fabulous visibility, pristine coral reefs, abundant marine life and all the trappings of a tropical paradise without the flashy resorts. Yes, it is isolated and it takes some effort to get there, but this is more than offset by the quality of the diving, the friendly locals and the very laid back and relaxing ambience of the entire place. It is quirky, fun and a great place for a holiday. We will return and soon

Don’t miss this place. My wife and I recently spent a fantastic week on Cocos Keeling Islands. We took the opportunity to take the twice weekly ferry service from West Island to Direction Island... we loved it so much we came back for a second time.

Home Island is definitely quieter than West Island with religion a big part of daily life but the locals were so friendly and welcoming. It was so nice to be able to swim straight off the shore in amazing turquoise water while we cooked BBQs at sunset. Highly recommended!
