Marlin Pinnacle is a like small treasure island rising up from the sandy sea bottom at 37m to a depth of 30m. Divers are almost guaranteed huge potato bass and shoals of large pelagic fish, as well as large manta rays and devil rays. Great big turtles circle the divers, checking them out before slowly swimming away to find a secluded resting spot. This is a top fishing site as game fish such as marlin and sailfish are abundant. Shark sightings are numerous and include reef shark, hammerheads, Zambezi and tigers. During the whale season, humpbacks are often seen at the surface and their haunting calls are heard underwater. Whale sharks are also frequent visitors.

Marlin Pinnacle can only be dived if weather conditions are right, as it is a fairly small reef and the current can be strong. Due to the depth, this dive site is only suitable for experienced Advanced Divers, preferably with their Deep Diver Specialty.
