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.

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

Two years ago we went to this place and it was not a good experience. But this year in November we had two nice dives with allot of sharks, at least 8. Very close en good too see. This was one of the best dives in my live! See the pictures!

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.

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!
