Dangleben’s Pinnacles (Moderate)

Dangleben’s  Pinnacles (Moderate)
Southwest

This series of 5 pinnacles varies greatly in shape and depth, but none shallower than 35 ft, and most can be circumnavigated at 80 ft. These pinnacles create a fantastic maze of dramatic topography that is home to schools of jacks, creole wrasse, yellow tail snappers, turtles, occasional barracuda and an assortment of other creatures. This site is best visited when there is a moderate current. The surface frequently has currents and until you get to the bottom at about 50 ft, there is nowhere to hide, so this dive is for the intermediate diver rather than the beginner. On days with no currents there will be less fish life, but the amazing explosion of colorful sponges, huge barrel sponges, vivid crinoids and thriving healthy reef make for an unforgettable dive.
