This site is a wonderful site out from Fanshell Beach - roughly between Point Joe and Carmel Point, though much more toward Carmel. Due to its exposed position, it is not often diveable, but on a calm day it is a wonderful site. There are two pinnacles side-by-side. The larger one tops out around 40' and drops off to 120' and you can even get a bit deeper going west. This is a very nice pinnacle with sharp relief, lots of cracks and a 'cave'. The smaller pinnacle tops out at about 80' and drops to roughly 130'. It is just over 40' from the larger pinnacle, so on a good vis day it's pretty easy to navigate between the two. If the vis isn't good ... head to the NW side of the main pinnacle and go NW for about 40' and you should hit it. Conversely if you missed anchoring on the main pinnacle and hit the smaller one, reverse those directions. :-)

This is one of the premier dive spots on the Big Sur coast. It is a pinnacle with sheer walls rising from 160 feet to 50 feet or so. Sister pinnacles nearby drop off to about 180 feet. The top of the pinnacle is covered in dense Corynactis and the top has Palm and Bull kelp, especially in summer. A notch at the top of the pinnacle has some hydrocoral. At about 120 feet there is a belt of Metridiums, especially on the south side of the pinnacle. Deeper still is a field of Gorgonians and along the bottoms of the walls advanced divers can expect to see Starry, Rosy and even juvenile Yelloweye rockfish.

The top of the reef is frequented by pelagics like Mola molas, Jellyfish, Salps etc. and also nearly always has large schools of Blue Rockfish, Yellowtail Rockfish and White Perch. Visibility at this spot is nearly always excellent. Often there are strong surface currents.

The area under the arch is about the size of the Whaler’s restroom and is beautifully decorated. The opening is oriented north-south and the floor is at about 40fsw. To the south, the passage dead-ends so continuing south requires ascending to the surgey path that Harry used. The best approach is from the north. But the entrance is not easy to spot as its hidden behind palm kelp and just looks like a dark wall because very little light passes through from the south side. Jon, Suz and I had been with 5 – 10 feet of it and didn’t see it. Gary Banta, July 2014
