Wandoka Pinnacle is a pinnacle with very rich biodiversity. Its shallowest point is at around 5m in depth. Depending on the current, you can dive the outer or inner part of the pinnacle, following the ridge. The bottom contour of this site consists of a drop off, a steep slope and sand with a maximum depth of 40m. At first sight the site doesn’t appear very exciting, but as you descend down to 10-15m and follow the ridge you will discover the vibrant colors of the healthy hard and soft corals and huge sea fans along the way.
