This is a great drift dive with a pinnacle that gives the dive site its name. It also has many swim throughs and also a cave to explore. This dive site is only for experienced divers as the currents on the site tend to move around a lot and they are subject to down currents, eddies, and shifting currents.

The maximum depth of this dive site is around 40 metres with most divers averaging at around 20 metres. The visibility is normally around 5 to 10 metres and tends to promote macro diving. The currents here are strong to moderate and this is mainly completed as a drift dive. As mentioned, as these currents change so much, only advanced divers should dive here.

Divers will find a reef in very good condition and as divers drift along it, they will spot many different types of corals including some lovely fans, and some good coverage of table corals. It is an ideal spot for spotting sharks and divers should be to see grey reef sharks, black tip reef sharks, and white tip reef sharks on this site. Hammerhead sharks are also visitors to the site as are Galapagos sharks. Between May and November, divers are also able to see whale sharks at this site. Amongst these, divers should also try to spot dolphins, turtles, moray eels, barracuda, and batfish, although there are many different types of marine life at this excellent dive site.
