Elphinstone South

Elphinstone South is an amazing off-shore reef dive and preferred by many as an afternoon dive due to the fantastic lighting. The dive slopes down from 18m deep to the deepest top of the plateau at 40m.

This spot is famous for the Oceanic whitetip sharks which are very common during Oct, Nov, and December. You will also see very healthy hard and soft corals, lots of fish and have a great chance to see manta rays and baracuda.
