This is a very good dive site that allows divers the chance to explore two very large pinnacles. This dive site is sometimes known as “Fishermen’s Nightmare” and is made up of two main large pinnacles that start at around 18 meters and then drop off down to 45 meters. The deeper parts of the dive and the strong currents mean that the site should only be undertaken by experienced divers. All divers need to be careful of the currents, which can be very challenging around new moon and full moon. Divers should also watch their depth when on the Western pinnacle as it drops down quickly and divers will need to monitor their position to avoid decompression diving. The dive is normally only around 35 minutes due to the depth.

The dive site is quite small and divers should be able to cover the site within one dive. Both pinnacles are covered with many soft and hard corals and make for a remarkable underwater topography.

Around the top of the pinnacles, divers can find many different marine species including Napoleon wrasse, manta rays, and trevally. Divers can find many different fish on the pinnacles including lionfish, shrimps, butterfly fish, angelfish, sweetlips, octopus, and moray eels. Along the sandy bottom, leopard sharks can be found resting and divers can spot blotched fantail rays.
