Dove this on Nitrox to 105 ft. For safety, we did do a one minute deco at both 50ft and again at 30ft along with the normal three minute safety stop at 15 ft. While its was a shorter than normal dive, it was still great with several sharks and lots of rays.

This is one of Saba's iconic dives. It is quite deep and therefore not much time is spent below. By the time you reach the pinnacle there is only enough time to do a couple of loops and return to the boat. OK to do but I am not too excited about going back to this one.

Beautiful deep pinnacle dive. Did as first dive on air dove Nitrox later on shallower dives. Divemasters dive nitrox on it and watch their depth. They ask if you want to do deco and have to plan for it This group was all recreational on air. Cool blue water descent to pinnacle on rope if you wish or alongside
