What to see

Gracing the clear, calm waters are many varieties of colourful reef fish amongst the abundant hard and soft coral reefs. Crocodilefish, lionfish, batfish, humphead wrasse, many bluespotted stingrays and the occasional turtle and manatee should be expected. Oceanic whitetip and hammerhead sharks can be seen at Elphinstone while barracuda stalk the local sites and eagle rays drop in for a fly-by. Watch out for dolphins as you travel between dive sites.
