Elphinstone conjures up visions of a mountain in the ocean. It is a testing site to practice your buoyancy control. The Elphinstone Reef is the place to be to encounter sharks, in particular the large oceanic white tip and shoals of hammerhead sharks.


The reef is a residence for tuna, blue lunar fusiliers, jacks, napoleon wrasse, black snappers and barracuda, spying from a distance. Coral adepts will not be disappointed at Elphinstone Reef. Its impressive walls are layered in soft corals of all variety and sizes, like black corals, wire corals and gorgonians.
