Little Brother: changing currents, deep walls which create a plateau around the island, a huge variety of marine life including the larger hawksbill turtles, grey reef sharks, thresher sharks & hammerheads, and a 'Gorgonian Forest' hiding little treasures.

Daedalus: an excellent opportunity to spot large pelagic life such as schooling hammerhead sharks & thresher sharks, manta rays (from March - October) and grey reef sharks and whitetip reef sharks. You’ll find broccoli corals in a range of candy colors, pristine hard coral formations. elephant ear corals, loads of reef fish and the superb 'Anemone City'.

Elphinstone: long plateaus in the north and south. while the rest of the reef is a steep, colourful wall rich in hard and soft corals. Currents are variable, and can be strong at times. Shark sightings are possible and barracuda hang in the blue while cornet fish hunt anthias.

Malahi: great pinnacles reminiscent of ancient Greek columns tower over divers, creating corridors lined with hard coral and rock that wind this way and that. It’s an underwater maze.

St John's Caves: paradise for photographers and videographers. Sunlight streams through cracks in the passageways above. Bluespotted Rays glide past and Porcupine Fish retreat into the shadows. The many passageways are adorned with feathery Hydroids that glow red, orange and yellow as they catch the light. See juvenile clown coris, bicolour parrot fish, gold-dotted flatworms, and at nighttime, Spanish Dancers!

Zabargard: a mountain with a fringing reef all around. It’s color, color, color right to the steeply sloping reef wall. Both hard and soft corals live here and there are a lot of swim-throughs and bluespotted rays, barrcudas, Napoleon Wrasse and schools of hundreds of fusiliers.
