Diving - Brewers Bay Pinnacles

Responsive image

DEPTH: 25-110 feet (8-33 M)


An enjoyable summer dive when there's no north swell, Brewers Bay Pinnacles is located just off the western tip of the bay. It's too far from the beach to be dived as a shore dive. The massive pinnacles are of varying height and bulk. They rise steeply from the ocean floor, some of them come within 30 feet of the surface. The gaps between the sheer granite structures comprise a confusing maze of alleyways, dead ends and narrow passages. The rocks are covered with deep-water gorgonians, sea fans and fire coral. Large jacks, eagle rays and turtles are often spotted by the observant diver. Amid the rocks and reef look for lobsters, skittish queen angelfish and whitespotted filefish.
