Dive Site: Yadua Pinnacles

Location: Yadua Island, the Mamanucas

Description: Reef / wall

Depth: 24 metres (79 feet)

Visibility: 25 metres (80 feet)

Rating: ****

In the horseshoe created by the reef that protrudes from the southeastern point of Yadua Island in the Mamanucas there are four pinnacles. If you have a really good look at each of the two pinnacles closest to the mooring then you will have spent an hour under the water already. This is a lovely dive site. The top of the pinnacles are covered in multi-coloured plate and staghorn corals, suffused with various varieties of anemone and their resident clownfish. There are usually schools of sergeant majors and drum up here too and on a sunny day (which, let's be honest, in Fiji is 9 days out of 10) it is heaven. Don't hang around here at the start though as you are going to spend your safety stop here anyway - proceed down to where the pinnacles bottom out (around 24m). The base of each of the pinnacles is covered in gorgonian fan corals and photographers can while away their time getting that perfect silhouette shot. Macro lovers will find plenty of nudibranchs and shrimp and we were once surprised be a monster hammerhead shark that came in for a close look before cruising away into the blue. We come here time and time again and are never disappointed.
