Join us to experience these spectacular Islands. Although they are very different from each other, they are both truly incredible and deserve a visit at least once in your lifetime.

Christmas Island has some incredible wildlife, including the famous red crabs, large areas of ancient rainforest, and a very unique history. Cocos Islands are low lying coral atolls made up of 27 coral islands with only 2 that are inhabited. They are covered in coconut palms, enjoy visits from some amazing migratory birds and have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. This is a paradise for bird watching, diving, snorkeling, fishing, and kitesurfing.

We have chosen April for our next departure in order to avoid road closures with Crab migrations on Christmas Island, but when there should still be a little rain around it will mean we will still have some crab action. This time of year is also less humid than earlier in the year so a little is more comfortable touring around.

Stop Dreaming!

Join our adventure to Christmas and Cocos Islands and step into Paradise!
