“Go early to avoid liveaboard build up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

My guide was amazing and a small dive group. Viz at 6am was good, but was very choppy when we came up.
What a shame shark are now so rare.

“Great !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Bit of a early morning start - about 2.5 hour boat trip, but great diving with Oceanic White Tip sharks and well worth it !!

“A great dive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

This was also a fantastic dive. We saw small sharks, giant sea turtles, beautiful corals of all colours and everything was so unspoiled and well protected.

“Oceanic white tips!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

On a sunny, blustery morning, we just hovered around in the deep blue off Elphinstone watching the sharks as they circled around and through us divers, curious and graceful. What can I say other than that I will always treasure this experience!
