Description: When there’s no current, this dive begins at “THE PINNACLE”. The pinnacle is a spectacular formation, rising from 30 metres up to a depth of 7 metres. You could spend a whole dive just exploring the sheer sponge walls, searching for the elusive octopus, large lionfish and nudibranchs, or admiring the majestic grey nurse sharks from April through to November.

Swim towards the south though, and you cruise through huge gutters and canyons, around giant boulders, and during May, June and July, it’s not unusual to find a vantage point and admire 20 to 30 grey nurse sharks. This dive is a must if the current isn’t running.
