With a huge variety of fish life on a single, concentrated area, Million Dollar Bommie shouldn’t be skipped on any dive holiday at Christmas Island. The bommie is about 20 to 23 feet (6 to 7 meters) high, growing up from a base at 85 feet (26 meters). The huge fans and coral overhangs make for fantastic fish photography. You might spot Meyer’s butterflyfish, pigfish, red fire goby, coral trout, damsel fish, fusiliers, triggerfish and rockcod. Keeping a watch out into the blue or while jumping in with snorkels after the dive, you might get a glimpse of a majestic manta ray.
