What to see

Expect to encounter dolphins on the way to dive sites by boat and maybe even underwater too. There's a resident manatee at one of the sites and lots of huge turtles to be seen. Crocodilefish are easy to find and pipefish squirm around the reef. While oceanic whitetips and hammerheads grace at Elphinstone, closer to shore you can see whitetips and bowmouth sharks too. Tuna and mackerel hunt along the reef and expect the usual clouds of anthias and swirls of fusiliers too.

  • Plenty of choice - from shallow wrecks and bays to world class Elphinstone, often with dive sites, dugong and dolphins all to yourself
