Divemaster Mike Juren reports on a dive location affectionately named “Sponge Bob”.  With photos from Chris Sherwood.

“This dive was organized for a group of keen divers all wanting to see this amazing dive site some time ago. This pinnacle is very special, and possesses different species of sponges, the silicate cloud sponge being the most dominant. There are dozens of these sponges on the pinnacle, some growing to 6′ or more, and the bioherm as discovered by Glen Dennison and Paul Sim is simply astounding.”
