If you are reading this, you already know you want to go there. Probably to see the big things. Mainly sharks. But, apart from this, Elphinstone is a beautiful reef. You will be engulfed in fish of any colour, millions of them. And the soft corals are second to none. When we dived this spot in April, we did not... 更多
Can never tell until under the water if currents are strong. Many people dive here for sharks but the reef is beautiful, many waste time at 30 metres when there is so much to see at 15 - 20 metres. Can get very crowded as can be reached from shore by ribs and day boats. Ribs can be a pain... 更多
most beautiful and pristine reef I've seen, even if there are no big fish / marine life - the reef will still take your breath away. Tricky currents - I would say divers should have at least 60dives 10 of which being drift & every diver should take an dsmb and reel.

Wonderful coral gardens, sharks, napoleon, dolphins. One of the best dives I have done. Recommended!
what a geat dive, unfortunately we didn't see shark, but still it is a nice dive, and if the current is good is a great drift dive as well. Sometimes the waves can be really big, so if you quickly seasick, keep this in mind.
