Elphinstone Reef Reviews
Bellissimo sito di immersione dove spesso si possono vedere squali longimanus, delfini , tartarughe enormi e squali martello. Direi che la sua fama di posto unico per i subacquei e' azzeccata. more »Beautiful dive site where you can see sharks longimanus, dolphins, turtles and hammerhead sharks. I would say that his reputation as a unique place for divers is spot on.
Einfach toll. Tiere und Pflanzen in nahezu unberührtem Zustand zu sehen! ... manchmal sind Dugongs vor Ort ... more »Just great. Animals and plants in almost pristine condition to see! Sometimes, dugongs are on site...
One of the favourite places in a Red Sea. "Must dive" spot!
It's a pretty touristy reef but for a good reason! You can see many big fish - barracuda, napoleon, tuna - and also sharks! Even though there're so many people it's definitely worth diving there!
