Diving on Elphinstone. The South and North plateaus are magnificent between 15 and 40 m, very colorful and their topographies make dives very special:
Indeed, on the southern tip is the famous “Arche” of Elphinstone between 45 and 60 m. You will be able to explore it equipped with a travel block and an O2 deco. (Certification Nitrox Confirmed: it is possible to carry out the training during the week).
The north point with its break at 42 m. If you continue this reef tongue up to 55 m, you will certainly meet its inhabitants: hammerhead sharks and grey sharks! Attention however to currents that can be very strong and surprising on Elphinstone.
