A 25-minute boat ride west of Puerto Galera is a pinnacle 500m/1650ft offshore sitting in the middle of Talipanan Reef. The top is at 15m/50ft and has a huge diversity of small fish, basket sponges, hard and soft corals. On the north-west face it drops off to over 80m/265ft where gorgonian fans are abound. A plateau in the shallow depths drops off vertically at 24m/80ft. In mid water there are shoals of surgeons and unicornfish; often giant tuna come in from the depth to feed. Below, schools of midnight and black snappers appear to swim towards you, breaking away at the last minute.
