Description

At the base of the pinnacle the wall is under cut, and there are large rocks and coral stacks on limestone reefs and ridges. Here is a video of some of the fish ‘n’ stuff. It was all shot at this site, though there were just as many nudis and small stuff as I seemed to capture on the Maya Point video. So have a look at that one too.

It can be quite dark, as the pinnacle obscures a lot of light so take a good torch.

There are plenty of sea anemones – this one perhaps thinking it was dusk already.

This Black tipped grouper was playing Nemo. Despite their rather glum appearance I suspect they have a wicked sense of humour.

There are a lot of big seafans down there.

And plenty of barrel sponge: nothing like shooting fish in a barrel.

A finally, an as yet undescribed feather duster worm. There were two – the other was all white – not quite so delightfully photogenic as this one.
