Daedalus Reef is a huge reef located about 180 km south of Brother Islands. The reef is surrounded by a sheer wall all around, featuring a plateau in its southern side that goes from 28 m beside the reef to 40 m on the edge of the drop-off. If the weather is good, try to get as far north as possible and drift along one of the sides of the reef. Oceanic whit tip sharks and hammerhead are often spotted here and for lucky divers, maybe a manta ray…
Sataya is situated at the very south of Fury Shoals; this huge natural lagoon is formed by a massive reef rising from the depths. The fame of Sataya is its steep drop offs along with pelagic sightings and protected pinnacles smothered in soft and hard corals. But the real stars can be the huge pods of spinner dolphins that frequent here, meaning Sataya has become the Dolphin House of Hamata.
In the Fury Shoals system, the Sha’ab Claudio captivates divers and enthralls photographers with its shallow swim-through system, perfect for leisurely exploration. With five entrances and exits and shallow in depth, you’re never ‘lost’ and can just enjoy the shafts of light dancing through the caves. Rays, nudibranchs, large Napoleon wrasse and morays are all frequently spotted here; you may even see a white tip reef shark or turtle pass by.
If the wind is not too strong, we’ll go to Elphinstone. With its shear walls covered in soft corals, this reef offers a likely encounter with Grey Reef Sharks circling on the plateaux and even Oceanic White Tip Sharks can be seen here for most of the year.
