Christmas Island Cruises
Christmas Island was named on Christmas day in 1643 by Captain William Mynors, the master of a passing ship. The island is located approximately 1,600 miles off the northwest coast of Perth, Australia.
More than half the island is a national park containing species of flora and fauna found nowhere else in the world. The most noticeable local is the red crab. There are more than 100 million of these vividly hued creatures living on the forest floor.
Christmas Island's unique population blends Asian and European influences from the Australian mainland. A visit here is a diverse cultural experience that features numerous temples, local festivals and diverse cuisine.
